GPU Scaling, Problems with Resolution

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
When I upgraded my GPU from NVIDIA to the AMD one (270x) I started to have stripes, black bars or whatever it is called even on non-4:3 resolutions. My monitor native and max resolution is 1400x900 but when I want to change it in Windows, I have 1600x1200, 1600x900 a or higher/bigger ones than my native as options. When I turn GPU scaling on in my AMD Radeon settings in the Display tab, my monitor pops up with the error how the selected resolution is not supported even though it is, 1280x720 for example. Then I have to rape my F8 button to start Windows in low resolution mode (640x480). How do I fix this?

Make sure you properly uninstalled the Nvidia drivers, search this forum for a guide on manual removal of GPU drivers.

When I was using a NVIDIA GPU I had no issues. Could it be because I'm using a DVI-I to VGA adapter?

I'm using the newest Crimson 16.9.2 drivers.

I'm using the newest Crimson 16.9.2 drivers.

Im using a adapter for my vga screen 1600x900 with that feature enabled at 1920x1080 with no issue on my 7950.

Maybe a driver bug.. You should try uninstalling it and making a new driver install. smile.gif

The monitor's EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) gets lost in the adapter. There are some adapters that do this and some that don't.

Your problem is the adapter. Try another one. Black ones are better than beige

Could be, is it an nvidia dvi adapter (or an old one?) Ive heard of those having issues on amd gpu. Do you have the option to connect through dvi? Never had this issue and I've owned AMD GPU for nearly a decade but haven't used vga or the adapter in years

AMD GPU have a scaling thing in the display option, it always comes on by default for w,e reason and its most likely this. Its a slider and you can see that the image will fit the screen as you soon as you zero it.

It says HDMI Scale on my control panel but it could say something else on yours.

I don't have any other inputs than the VGA one on my monitor. It's most likely the adapter I'm using, I'll try a new one soon and I'll reply.

max resolution of the VGA you are using is 1600x1200, which is obviously not the native resolution of a 1080p monitor (1920x1080).
Does your monitor only have VGA input?

Also try doing manual uninstall of nvidia and amd drivers and then reinstall the amd card if you experience other issues, as sometimes people experience issues after doing the swap.
