Black border on the edge of my monitor, grayed out options in the menu monitor

Here is a picture of the problem: http://puu.sh/6uauG.JPG .
It appears after I update my video card drivers (Sapphire radeon ds 7870 xt) and used Driver Sweeper software. Overscan in Catalyst control center been set at 0% and in my menu monitor (benq gw2260hm) the Auto, H.position and V.position are grayed out, can you please help me? :(
Black borders (at the top and left) also appears when I use an HDMI and DVI-D cable... :(

  1. okay so im not sure if this answers your question but right click while on your desktop then change click screen resolution and use the recommened setting and it could also be because your backround isnt the same size as your resolution. Hope this helps :)
  2. done yet, that's not the problem
  3. Sounds like the image is not quite centred, check the monitor documentation or download the online manual to see how to centre the image correctly.
  4. I can't modify the H.Position or V.position of the image because they are grayed out. Maybe driver sweeper was the problem, I uninstalled my video cards drivers with driver sweeper and in the log file I see that it delete some .inf files and registry entries relative with my monitor, this is the entire log:

  5. Maybe we're talking at cross purposes here, but I meant the adjustments on the monitor itself ( the On Screen Display or OSD) rather than in the CCC settings.
  6. Update: I used a VGA cable and I can use the V.position and H.position settings but the screen image doesn't go over that black edge!
  7. Like i said are you sure it isnt your backround that is too small?
  8. No, my native resolution is 1920x1080, but in the catalyst control center the maxim resolution is 1680x1050 and if I want to set 1920x1080 I have to select 1080p under the HDTV menù, such this: http://puu.sh/6vBAX.png . (under 1080i is 1080p)
