Solved

I just got a new Samsung monitor (S22C300H) and in 1920 x 1080 resolution it doesn't use the full screen.

It's a 22 inch (21.5 diag) monitor. The title says it all, and the next best resolution that uses up the entire screen is 1600 x 900. I really dislike the black frame it puts around the desktop, and I'd like to use the 1920 x 1080 resolution for gaming, which ironically is the "recommended" resolution. Any suggestions?

    It's all four sides, and I'd say it's about an inch on the sides and a half inch on the top and bottom.
  3. hmmm, that is weird, try getting into the menu on the monitor itself and mess around with that.
  4. Are you using HDMI? Sounds like an Underscan Issue

    I've done that. It proves to be a fruitless endeavor, which brought me to these forums.

    Yeah, I'm using HDMI from my graphics card to the monitor. I've settled on using 1680 x 1050 resolution, and I'm okay with it for the time being.

    Another reason I don't use HDMI. Buy a DVI cable (if you don't have one) and hook it up to the monitor. DVI is always reliable.

    I'll try this and see how it goes. All I have for the moment is an adapter, but I'll go out and get a true DVI cable.
  9. check your graphics comand center for screen scaling, had the same thing

    Did you try DVI? I know that probably won't fix it but I would suggest using DVI over HDMI.
