Windows 7: ATI Black borders in games

ATI Black borders in games

I get black borders when I am playing some games, I get it in Prototype for all resolutions and some resolutions in BC2. I never get black borders when I was using Nvidia cards. I tried underscanning, overscanning, and changing resolutions. I only get it if I am using HDMI, but when I use DVI, I never get black borders.

I have ATI Radeon HD 5770, my monitor is LG Flatron W2361V.

Well, you've said that you've tried underscan and overscan, but maybe you didn't set it correctly?

Go to DTV and under that an option for UnderScan/OverScan. Drag this to 0% and you should get what you're looking for.
To tell you the truth, HDMI is made for televisions mostly. You're better off using DVI/VGA on an lcd monitor.

Even if the overscanning/underscanning is it 0%, i still see borders in game, Also I sometimes use HDMI because for audio. Also I never get black borders when I was using Nvidia cards.
