When its set to the max res. in windows 7 64 (it says recommended) 1920x1080 and its like 1.5inches of realestate around the monitor is unused.... strange

Actually I am researching now and found someone with similar problem, they said to go into the ATI control panel and find Image Scaling???

Yes, if there is an option to adjust the scaling then have a play.

hmmm !

u got any controls or anythin on ur monitor ?

lg monitors come with auto optimization ... they adjust it automatically..

if not...then try some controls (buttons) on ur monitor

if that same problem persists(black frame) u can ask ur retailer ! u just bought it right ?

Well, been messing around with the settings, only thing i can get to look good is 1680x1050 @60hz.... maybe this is the max the 4850 can do??

No, the 4850 supports 19 x 10, check the monitors settings or get in touch with HP.

Found it!! ATI catalyst contron center, in advanced mode (this is version 9.9), go to desktops and displays, you'll see a picture on the bottom left with a monitor, right click on it, hit configure, this changes the menu and SCALING is an option, go to scaling. By moving the cursor in there to 0% overscan, This fixed the problem!!! Thanks guys
