Scaling is probably not set in the driver's software properly, this happened to me on my Radeon HD 7950, scaling in the Catalyst app fixed it, for the particular monitor that was having the issue.

That's where to look OP, be it Nvidia, Catalyst or Intel for video.

I answered these separately earlier. I'm sorry if I am doing this incorrectly.

No games
A search for a graphics card finds nothing. A search for VGA HDMI finds nothing.

What's your video situation, use msinfo32.exe (search box) or speccy from piriform.com or gpu-z from cpuid.com to get to the bottom of what's actually in place for your video.

It's likely scaling, did you look?

Scaling off is very easy to fix, usually a matter of moving a slider and then clicking apply | OK.

Where do I find scaling in my computer?

I don't have any extra video downloads.
