Windows 7: Glitch with screen resolution

Glitch with screen resolution

As you can see in the picture, the boarder of the screen and the desktop background don't match up correctly, a decent sized gap between the two. I did not have this problem originally, just after I reformatted. The resolution is set at 1920 x 1080 which is native for my monitor and supported by my graphics card. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Monitor: Asus VH238H
GPU: Radeon 5870 (Eyefinity edition)

Make sure that you have installed drivers for your Radeon. Download it from here: ATI Catalyst

Or, use AMD's Auto Detect Driver: AMD Driver Autodetect

The first thing I do after a reformat is re-install my video drivers, so that's not the problem. I reformat on a regular basis, never had this problem occur.

Try an older driver. If my memory serves me right, somebody else had this problem last week and an older driver solved the problem.

Is there a particular reason why you reformat on a regular basis...just curious.
