monitor 1920x1080 picture won't fill screen

September 1, 2011 at 01:13:22
Specs: Windows 7, quad-core 4G
I bought a new monitor (1920x1080) to replace one (1920x1200). I did it so I could split the HDMI signal coming out of the the computer. Problem is the picture does not fill the screen. Have tried everything. It will fill the screen at a lower resolution but I want it to be 1080p as the split signal goes to the big 47" HDTV big screen.

Very disappointing not to be able to get the picture to fill the screen. Help!!

In graphics card options ( for ex. if you are using AMD gfx card, in Catalyst Control Center), you must set underscan to 0% for the monitor you are having problem with.

Hope this helps.

I can't load the Catalyst Control Center. It has never worked on my Windows 7 Ultimate. I have a 3 monitor set-up (HIS ATI Eyefinity Radeon HD 5670).

When I could get it to load it would only display 2 monitors. The tech that helped me said Windows 7 sometimes will not load the Catalyst Control Center. I had to uninstall it and let Windows find it's own driver. W7 found an ATI 5600 driver and installed that automatically. Now I have 3 monitors but no video card control pannel, and no way to set the underscan to 0%.

Is there any other way to set the underscan to 0% besides the Catalyst Control Center?

I tried again to install the Catalyst Control Center. It looks like I did it. Now I can't find it anywhere except in the device manager under display adapters.

How to I find and open up the Catalyst Control Center so I can do the underscan to 0% thing?

I did it! Thank you so much. I just kept trying to download the Catalyst Control Center. Finally it actually downloaded!

It took a little looking around but I found the scaling options and set it to zero and hit apply. It worked! On the monitor and the 47" HDTV screen! (using HDMI splitter)

I'm over the moon. I've read about people having this problem. Never thought I would. You have helped in a very big way.

Thanks again! So Cool!
