    go to display properties in control panel and switch the monitor to the recommended resolution. if it doesn't fix it, in the catalyst control center disable all scaling options for the display

    for some weird reason, i cant seem to open Catalyst centre.
  3. You need to fix that issue first. Download display driver un-installer and re-install drivers after it is completed. If you can not open, something is not right.
