HMDI problem w/ monitor or video card

Catalyst 9.2
HD 4870 512mb
vista 64bit

2333HD.. is this a rare problem? i really dont want to return this thing cuz i bought it from costco and the freaking thing sold fast.. most likely of i ask for an exchange theyll just be giving a refund.. i paid 290.74 USD total.. 250$ w/o tax and california waste disposal law..

2333HD's native res = 1920 x 1080 (16:9 aspect ratio)

When connected via HDMI either HDMI port 1 or 2.. my pc outputs black bars all over the screen when set to its native resolution of 1920x1080!.. but anything lower than that like 1680 x 1050, fills in the screen well, but i dont want to run it anything less than its native resolution..

any ideas on what i should do? seems to be a rare problem

Pls? anybody?








its looks very ugly when the screen gets compressed like this

I really would really love the Single Cable solution of the HDMI for video and sound :(

pls help THANKS IN ADVANCE for any comments or suggestions "D

    Open Catalyst Control Center (advanced) and there should be a "Scaling Options" setting under your TV (HDMI) connection. Go change it to 0% underscan (slider all the way to the right side) and you should not have the black bars problem anymore. This solved my problem on my Sharp Aquos 65' LCD TV (LC-65D64U) with an ATI Radeon HD 3850 (HDMI) using 1080p native resolution.
  2. Hi mates,

    I have the same problem if i have native resolution and go scaling that, the screen is blurry. With vga-cabel in D-SUB the native resolutuion is perfect 1080!! hope they release a new firm ware or something for the 2333HD so that this bug is fixed.

    A tought that i have was that, is it possible that the hdmi cabel is just not enough effective to get a clear full hd 1080 on a 23" monitor?

    I love the hdmi when i get bouth sound and video in it, would be a shame to start useing the vga-cable(D-SUB)
  3. I bought a laptop 4 days ago with hd 4200.

    My previous laptop, 2 years old using vga to my 25 inch monitor using 1920x1080 was nemas problemas.
    But the new laptop with hd 4200 could not reach past 1400 res.

    So i returned it and got a desktop, also with a hd 4200 on the mother board.

    Same thing there... LOL im saying a complete line of manufactured sets of hd 4200 chips that are faulty.

    Please correct me :p

    Also, im using my xbox360 on the monitor and there is no problem with 1920x1080.

    There is nothing wrong with my monitor.

    Ive tried with both vga and hdmi
  4. I had the same problem with under/overscaling and found help here:

  5. ATI driver is up to 9.11. Remove / clean up your ATI driver then get the latest updated driver. Below is the path for 4870 ATI driver for your reference.

    http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=vista64/common-vista64

    Its possible that the old driver is not updated with your screen from Samsung. When you set a display to 1080i will blur since the update of the screen is effectively 30HZ. The samsung monitor specs is 1080P or 60HZ.

    After Installation of the new driver start CCC. Go to Desktop Properties and do the following:
    1) Make sure that CCC recognizes your screen and display its model number on the top of the CCC Desktop Properties
    2) On the Settings check and or select 1920x1080, Color Quality 32 bit, Refresh Rate 60HZ, Land scape. There is a pull down menu to select different settings. There is a FORCE BUTTON to force specific settings on the monitor.

    3) Go to the scaling options and adjust the Desktop to the screen edges if needed.
  6. Below is the path for the user's manual/datasheet of Samsung Syncmaster 2333HD. The monitor can support 1920x1080@60HZ
