Hmm...

Could you please provide your native resolution? You're probably not running games in full resolution or in a wide resolution. From what you've expained, it seems like you have a Widescreen monitor as only 4:3 ratio monitors don't have cut off sides when running full screen games.

What's your native resolution?

hi avi, can you describe the issue with a bit more detail? the screen cut off, are you talking about black bars like this:
-img_0858-1-.jpg
-img_0859-1-.jpg

you can solve this by going to catalyst control center and turning off or scaling with fixed aspect ratio or enabling full screen scaling

Hi avi, you need to set scaling to off, this will solve the black bars at either side of the screen, to get to it follow this step by step guide:

1. Open up catalyst control center
2. Switch to Advanced mode if you are not there already
3. Click dropdown menu Graphics in the top right
4. Select Desktops and Displays
5. Right Click your currently activated display under ‘Please Select a Display’ on the bottom right
6. Select Configure
7. Go to the attributes tab and uncheck the GPU scaling option.

I guarantee this will stop the black bars from appearing.
