Windows 7: ATI Catalyst Control Center will not allow Full Screen

21 Jan 2010   #1

Windows 7 baby ! : D
ATI Catalyst Control Center will not allow Full Screen


Currently the scaling option on my video card is set to "Centered Mode" however I would like to change it to "Full Screen Mode". Basically what's happening is, whenever I click on "Full Screen" in the ATI Catalyst Control Center and click on "Apply". My screen turn black for 1 second then automatically reverts back to "Centered Mode".

My goal is to set my screen scaling option to "Full Screen".

I would like to add, that I am running Win Se7en Ultimate 64bit on the following hardware :

- AMD Athlon TF-20 (1.60GHz - Single Processor)
- 4GB of DDR2 RAM
- ATI Mobility Radeon X1200

thanx in advance !

Please download the following file, save to your desktop, then check it out

What are your thoughts ?

If you need more information, please don't hesitate to ask me

Again Thank you, I hope to be able to get to the bottom of this, perhaps it's not a huge deal, but I remember in the past, on Win 7 Home Premium 32bit, I had no problems changing the scaling option to "Full Screen". In fact If I remember correctly It was already set to "Full Screen" as default.^_20100121^_2050.mht

Hello Jordan,

First, what is the file behind your link?

Second, have you updated your video card drivers? Try downloading the latest ones from the manufacturer's site.
