Monitor Not Full Screen

Hey guys. I have a slight problem. I have a Dell XPS7100 that I got yesterday. I tried to start it up and for some reason it is not full screen. I tried to adjust it through the controls on the monitor, that didnt work. Then i tried to adjust it through my computer i.e. through system preferences. Could it be the drivers or something? My graphics card it 1GB ATI® Radeon™ HD 5870 graphics card with Vision Black label and my monitor is DELL™ ST2410 24-inch Full HD Widescreen Monitor.


Thanks so much!

Ps, im connected with an HDMI cable...

Sounds like the underscan/overscan setting in CCC

Catalyst Control Centre - Graphics - Desktop & Displays - Right Click small HDTV at the bottom - Configure - Scalling - Underscan/Overscan - set to 0%

Need some help/advice with my HD 5770

That shows where you go in CCC to fix the problem.

Secondly, the 10.9 Cat's bork the setting of Overscan properly (for some of us HDMI users).
