Dell Studio XPS 16 overscans beyond screen border

December 15, 2012 at 08:50:27
Specs: Windows Vista, 2.667 GHz / 8110 MB

I have done everything under the sun that I can think of. I've updated drivers, rolled back drivers, updated the BIOS, reset the CMOS, created custom resolutions and still cannot get the whole picture in the screen. I noticed that this happens even before Windows starts, so it leads me to believe that it's a hardware configuration. Any help is appreciated.

There's little reason to use any other screen resolution than the native resolution. It appears the screen supports 1080p, so I assume the native resolution is 1920x1080?

Thanks for nothing riider. The problem's in the title and what I have done already too troubleshoot it is in the message. You're reply is completely useless, next time keep your condescending comments to yourself.

I guess you edited out your original poor choice of words, yes, that is the screen resolution.

Have you tried adjusting the picture from the controls on the monitor itself?

Was this monitor used on a different computer from the one it's on now? Many monitors have an auto adjust feature on them. If auto adjust was used on a different computer, then changed to this one, it's possible it has kept the settings that were used on the other computer. This scenario is most likely when using the monitor on laptops with different aspect ratio screens.

It's a laptop, there are no controls.
