Windows 7: Monitor not going to full screen.

23 Aug 2014   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Monitor not going to full screen.

Not sure where this belongs.

I have a HP2210 monitor.
When i go to 1600x900 the monitor leaves a black edge all the way around the windo. Like its not full screening.
I check the monitor settings and played around but nothing is stretching the screen out.

I have a Radeon PowerColor 7850 GPU.

Any suggestions on where to begin to fix.

Full screen program on secondary monitor?
Hey, Is there any way in Windows 7 to force a specific full-screen program (like a game) to open on a secondary monitor? Or does full-screen stuff only work on the primary monitor? - Phil
