Alex welcome to the Seven Forums.

Open the Catalyst or Vision Control Center (name depends on the rest of the computer, not just the video card) by right clicking on the desktop and selecting it from the context menu. Once open this is what to look for,

then adjust the slider till the border disappears.

Note, if this is already set to 0%, check the settings on the monitor itself, too. You're looking for Over/Underscan or Screen Size, something like that.

Your monitor's menu (buttons on the monitor) will have the horizontal and vertical adjustment options. Adjust the horizontal and vertical sizes of the display separately till the display fills the complete screen to your satisfaction.

Or the monotor's menu will have a Auto Adjust button/option. While the windows is up and running, press this button or select this option and the display will be adjusted automatically filling the LCD screen.

i tried looking for that =/ doesnt give me an option to.. its all greyed out and wont let me get to those options, some of the other options that it would give it just says "Please install or check easy set package" in which i assume is the disk this monitor came with.. turns out that disk isnt for my monde.. this monitor model is LG E2350V i was able to turn on overscan.. it covers more of my screen but not completely if there's no more ideas i guess i could settle for this =/ it would really bother me though

Driver for the monitor installed?

LG Product Support for E2350V-PN

Listing your monitor as "generic plug and play" in your specs would lead to believe no.
