I had the exact same issue and I was hoping it was not a monitor issue. Yes I realize this post is old but it should be stickied!

Many thanks to emil1964 and patriciols for finding the solution!

Problem qith 16:10 1920x1200

I'm facing quite similar problem but this solution doesn't work, I'm already at max scaling option !

I've HD Radeon 6950 and a pc monitor 16:10 1920x1200.
Last AMD drivers and Catalyst suite installed.

Using the HDMI output I can't have fullscreen there is black borders up and down : I just can choose 1920x1080 maximum.

Using DVI output with VGA adaptater, I can choose 1920x1200 and I've fullscreen.

I'm wondering if a HDMI cable has specs for ratios or resolution ? It's written : Aspect Ration 21:9 and Resolution 3840x2160 4096x2160 ...

My Card and Windows Seven see my 16:10 monitor as a HDTV ! but it's not.

And moreover for this card it is said that the max output resolution for HDMI is 1920x1200, but I can't figure out.

What is the reality ?

Thanks for your answer !
