Windows 7: Black border around screen

25 Jun 2010   #11

Windows 7 64-bit
 
 

Hey, just bought a new widescreen monitor and noticed the black border problem on the desktop at 1080p resolution. A quick Google search led me here and, in turn, fixed the black border issue so the desktop takes up the entire screen!

However, it only does so on the actual desktop. Anytime I start a game in full screen 1080p, it goes back to having the black borders despite the overscan being set to 0.

Any help with that issue? Did I miss a setting somewhere? And yes, I was sure to change the resolution in the games.

Hey there guys, I was wondering if it's possible to manipulate this feature without installing the CCS? I'm toying around with w8beta 64 bit and I can't seem to install the control panel, the drivers work fine though. (Along with everything else btw! lol!)

Still need help

I have the same problem with the black borders, and overscaling it helped, but only as long as I opened a random application. Then it scaled back. I can't play games without the borders. I tried uninstalling the drivers and try older and newer, however nw things are even worse, now I can't see Catalyst Control Center under my right click. Can someone please help me, I have looked everywhere :/ (I'm using AMD HD 4870, 13.9 driver)

black borders

Hi, sorry for posting on an old thread. I've just recently encountered this problem after re installing windows 7 on my acer aspire m3910 and am unable to find the catalyst control center to scale it down. Any ideas on how to sort this?

Hi, sorry for the very slow reply, I tried the site you suggested but I'm not interested in paying for the drivers to be updated when it could very easily be done for free. I am unsure as to which drivers have been installed as I was forced to do a re-install of windows before this issue appeared and don't recall installing any drivers/software since that time.

Acer does not charge for their Drivers ...

I had this issue long back when I purchased Dell Inspiron HD 410 with Win7 x64 preloaded (to connect to my full HD TV), downloaded the catalyst driver from AMD's site for integrated radeon HD4200 and FORGOT about it.

I just now upgraded to Win10 . The win8 upgrade advisor did warn me that I would have to reinstall catalyst driver from AMD's website. didn't think much of it

After win10 has booted-up I realize I have run into same issue again but AMD has given-up on this IGP and last version of this driver is more than 2 years ago. what should I do now to fix this oversampling issue?
