I cant use the slider, its always greyed out regarded of the tick box. I use HDMI and yes it has a DVI port, but I want to use HDMI. I can set a custom resolution, but still get the same problem.

As a test, connect using DVI and see if the problem still happens.

Had a search around. Most people are fixing this with the overscan settings at 1920x1080. They are saying it only works (adjustments available) at 1080P, which 1650x1050 is not. Also saw a tip to configure the monitor 1st, then try:

I'm afraid I don't have CCC (Nvidia), but This will likely turn out to be an HDMI/1650x1050 issue. Sorry if none of this helps, but if you use DVI, you will loose nothing over HDMI if your monitor does not also have audio. Both are digital signals, but HDMI is more picky where format is involved.

The DVI works fine with no problem, but the HDMI looks way better and it only goes up to 1600x1200 with the DVI. So my problem still remains.

HDMI and DVI are the same video signal - HDMI just has an audio channel. Your monitor's native resolution is 1650x1050, and HDMI at 1080p looks terrible, so there's no need to go any higher than 1650x1050. If DVI works, why not use it?

You say you have the latest drivers - what version are you running?

My monitor has audio as well and I don't have speakers. I got my updates from here ATI Catalyst
downloaded the latest one.

Im currently using DVI, but if I can use HDMI, I would like to fix the problem and use it.

check your monitors direct setting if there is a option "overscan" and set it to off
