Hello Drea, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you able to set the screen resolution how you want in Windows 7 settings instead of CCC?

Hi Brink

I did everything you said the screen resolution cut off left side corner. The right side corner wallpaper is fix but it still cut off at left side corner.

If it's just the wallpaper that is affected, then double check to make sure that you have Fit selected for the "Picture position" like in step 9 of the tutorial below.

drea,
I do not normally recommend this product due to it being over-aggressive.
But, run DRIVER SWEEPER.

Run in SAFE MODE!
Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

After removal:
1. Run the Registry Cleaner portion of CCleaner so that AMD doesn't find any traces there.

2. you may now install CCC if you really feel compelled to do such. Nearly always, CCC is NOT needed.

Drea,

You might also consider doing a system restore at boot using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened to undo it.

Might be a stupid answer, but have you tried the Function+F4 keystroke?
