ATI Catalyst 9.9

i have a ati 4850 and i install all the latest drivers/catalyst etc and when i extend my desktop to my 40" samsung led.. it won't fully display there's like a 1" black border all around. even if i make my led primary it still have the border and i also have the latest upgrade for the samsung.

from researching it seem like it's a over/under scan problem but i don't see a over/underscan slider in windows 7 or in the catalyst control center?

It's there somewhere, but ATI did a great job making the worst UI ever,
so you need to take a day off to find it.

You need to have DVI or HDMI cable, otherwise you won't get the slider.

good hunting

I had the same problem with the 1 inch border and you are correct it is a scaling problem. Go into CCC and click on "desktops and displays", There will be a small monitor in the lower left hand corner, click on the arrow over that display, click on configure, you will see a tab for "scaling options" that will let you adjust underscan and overscan. I set mine to zero and it solved the problem for me. Best of luck to ya but I do believe this setting will only be available if you are using a HDMI cable to your monitor.

Good to see it's working for you.

I was typing slow!

It's a little tricky to find it.
Open up CCC and select Desktops & Displays.
On the little display on left corner on the bottom right click and select Configure...



Select Scaling Options



Move the slider to 0%



Enjoy full screen desktop!

Same for me. Very frustrating to see everyone solving the problem through -->configure but just getting kicked back to the welcome screen myself.

tried connecting DVI-HDMI, HDMI-HDMI, custom resolutions, registry value editing, powerstrip, and so far nothing works. There is no setting for res that I can use that will utilize the entire screen through my 4890

Try the latest ATI Tray Tools.

It's a nice piece of freeware that has been around for a long time.

It works so much easier than ATI's own CCC.

Here's the link:
Download ATI Tray Tools 1.6.9.1391 Beta / 1.3 Stable - Free tweaker for Radeon cards that provides you with support for ATI Control Center - Softpedia

Good luck

Squonks is now my god.

F8 on bootup to disable w7 from blocking unsigned drivers and it works.
