It Sounds if your software and/or driver are borked to me. Check this link out and see if it is the driver you have.

ATI Catalyst

Click on "release notes" at left top of page to make sure you are listed.

Please refer to the manual to your particular model (attached to this post). This manual explains the setting up instructions and display adjustments (both automatic and manual) from page 12 onwards.

this is what my catalyst window looks like, nothing like in the pic shown to demonstrate on how to adjust my overscan settings, but atleast it opens! but i do think i have to install the driver so that it appears on the catalyst to adjust it.. im not sure, thoughts?

• Be sure to install the display driver from the display
driver CD (or diskette) that comes with your
display. Or, you can also download the driver from
our web site: LG Electronics: Consumer Electronics & Appliances from LG | LG USA.
• Make sure to check if the video card supports
Plug&Play function.

ive done this from the guide while trying to find my driver for this model, the download that it gives me only lists 3 things..
a .cat file containing a security catalogue
a .icm file containing an ICC Profile
and a .inf file containing Setup information.. no installation for a driver =/

Don't Be Pulled Two Ways

The other posts are leaning toward your display. I would resolve that first. If that doesn't work return to the CCC software and the graphics card driver.

Graphics Driver

I will post this in case you decide to reload your Graphics driver.

Here is a good way to install a new graphics driver. If you are not familiar with this, do two steps in prep. Download a good copy of your graphics package. I believe you have 5700 series AMD. The link I posted previously should be the correct one. Second if you don't have "Driver Sweeper" here is a link for it. I Would unzip any of the downloads that need it. Put the files where You can easily access them.

Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

Go to device manager and delete your graphics card entry. Don't be alarmed Win will put a generic driver in for you. The generic one will probably give you a display of 800x600 or something like that. Now reboot. Between the boot of your bios and prior to Win starting repeatedly press F8 until windows gives you a choice of how to boot. Select "Safe Mode". Once you are in safe mode, hunt your exe for driver sweeper. Left click and run it as admin. Driver Sweeper will give you a list of drivers to hunt. Check AMD and leave the rest blank. Proceed and the app will show you a list of driver files and registry entries. Skim thru them and check to see that they are all AMD. If so proceed to delete them. This will insure that you don't have any old drivers hangin' around to interfere with your new install. Once the sweep is complete reboot. When you reboot Win will try to identify your card and install a generic driver again. Your display will probably still be 800x600. Not to worry. Go to your driver file that you downladed double click and start the install. If you have the correct driver file, you should be out of the woods.

Got to love this part from the manual for that monitor,

Display resoution at Max and it's not covering my full screen-2350.jpg

Says to me that unless you are using headphones connected to the monitor, use DVI instead.
