Probably need to go into CCC and change scaling to fit the 2nd monitor.

Not to be confused with resolution.

Open Catalyst Control Center in Advanced Mode.

Click on Graphics at the top and choose Desktops and Displays.

Right-Click on the appropriate display and choose Configure.

Click on Scaling Options. Increase or decrease to fill the screen.

This is especially handy when using HDTV's as monitors. Like me. I had the same problem as you with about a 1 inch black area all the way around the image.
