I am using an ASUS 22" monitor. Got it hooked to an ATI 5770. The cable is a DVI (plugged into 5770) that runs into an HDMI (plugged into monitor)

When I display at 1920 x 1080 i get a 1 inch black border around the screen. When I run at anything less it is skewed (i.e. aspect ratio off)

But when I run crysis...can select whatever setting i like and runs perfect...

Just windows that looks rubbish

Help appreciated

You can try this, first run CCC click Graphics tab and select desktop and display, at the bottom there is an icon of your display right click on that and click Configure. Navigate to Scaling options and set Overscan to 0%.

All i get is underscan or overscan? No option of value (i can tick a box saying use scaling values instead)

What is your monitor's native resolution, being 22inch it probably is 1920x1080 but check.

I don't know what version of CCC you have but i have 9.11 and yes, there's Underscan and Overscan option along with the adjustable slider from 15% to 0% just at the top of a monitor icon and if you have that option slide it completely to 0% but if you don't have that, i can't help any further.

good luck!

Not sure what my native is. Resolution suggestions 1920 x 1080 but then the border appears.

The underscan / overscan scroller is greyed out... ??

if its 22 inch, most 22 inch monitors have a 16:10 aspect ratio, 1920x1080 is a 16:9 resolution, they usually use 16:9 for 23 inchers and 21.5 inchers, try 1680x1050, this is usually the native res for 22 inchers with a 16:10 aspect ratio.BestAnswer v

Got it running at 1920 x 1080..the CCC option only appeared when at this resolution. Looks crystal clear and no distortion

Thanks guys

Crysis here we go....

Any ideas for improved performance

Got an intel Q6600 2.4 that im clocking up to 3.2 (with Dark Knight cooler)...4gb DDR2 800Mhz ram and a new ATI 5770 1Gb GDDR5 GPU

Other than plugging in another 5770 and linking it with crossfire...what else can I do to this machine?

I have the exact same issue however I can not find the CCC file. I have a new build and just installed Win 8.1. So how can I overscan or fix this problem?
