No Scaling Option

Hey there, so when I set my resolution to something other then max resolution (1680x1050), I get black bars either on the top and bottom or on the sides. I have a radeon hd 5770, Have the latest CCC Version 10.3. I have been searching google for answers but I just can't find it. Many other answers I found told me to go to the configure options on desktop and displays where they say the scaling option will be. So I go there, but once I'm there, there is no scaling option!



See? No scaling options.
Can anyone help me?

  1. please?
  2. It's supposed to have these options, but doesn't. Oh, and I have windows 7.
  3. Are they there but greyed out?

    I can only adjust the settings when I am in a non-native res. Then when you go back to native res they will stick and be used whenever you start an app.

    My first picture shows the options aren't even there at all. They are simply not there.
  5. Anyone, please? I want this problem fixed so bad!
  6. What happens if you turn off EDID and change the resolution to some random one?

    Also, what type of connection are you using?

    And finally, what is in the adjustments tab?

    1. It just allows me the options to the greyed out max res. and max refresh rate.
    2. Connection to what, and how do I check?
    3.
  8. I mean the cable between the monitor and graphics card. DVI, HDMI, VGA?

    What happens if you press the expand arrows in that picture (the top and left ones in the middle).

    Buttons on the inside makes the screen flash, but I see no difference, buttons on the outside move the position of the screen. And its VGA cable.
  10. Those middle ones should be some sort of manual scaling I'd think. I use DVI cables, perhaps auto Scaling only works on digital?
  11. have you checked the monitors own (on-screen) settings for scaling/1:1mapping?

    It has wide, zoom, and 1:1, what should it be on? its on Wide right now. When I choose zoom and 1:1 it only increases black bars. I also tried going to ccc for each resolution to see if scaling options would show up, they didn't.
  13. the 1:1 option shows the picture as it is, it doesnt upscale or stretch it (or at least it should work like that) ending up with black bars and clearer picture when lower than native res is used.

    not sure exactly how the wide and zoom works on that monitor. probably has something to do with how the monitor handles non 16:10 aspect ratio resolutions. in a any case you should always use resolutions with the same aspect ratio than the native res, otherwise it might look a bit distorted.
    16:10 (or 8:5)aspect ratio is marked with purple in this chart
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Vector_Video_Standards2.svg
    so smaller ones would be 1280x800 and 1440x900
  14. k, well I want to upscale or stretch it for my own reasons and not have black bars. Any help?
  15. well if none of the possible combinations of resolutions and zoom/wide options doesn't result in a satisfactory result, then I dont know what to suggest next...
  16. gotta be someone who knows how to fix this
  17. well with the new CCC 10.3

    You open CCC click on graphics / desktop & displays / on the bottom monitor small monitor click the triangle and configure / scaling option

    then use the slider to fit image to monitor


    Update your CCC
  18. He already has it. Suppose he could try uninstalling it, running driver sweeper in safe mode, and reinstalling just to make sure everything is working a well as it can.

    Tried, failed
  20. I just downloaded 10.3. I am having the same issue as the OP. Scaling is not here! Damn I can't wait to go back to Nvidia.
  21. What cable/connection, what GPU, and what monitor/res?
  22. vga, radeon hd 5770, FPD2185W TFT LCD Monitor 1680 x 1050
  23. BUMP I want this *** to be fixed already.
  24. Your LCD screen is 1680x1050. It is best the run it at is natural pixel matrix configuration.

    Start CCC-> Display Properties->Configure->Attributes

    For LCD Screen you have to Enable GPU Scaling.
  25. In CCC go to Desktop and Displays right click the small monitor icon in the botom and click on configure, I used to overscan feature but you could check mark the ENable GPU scaling boc if needed.
  26. if you guys read through the thread, you would know both your comments are unhelpful.
  27. latest version of ccc finally fixed this, thank god.
  28. thats why i said go to desktop and displays not display properties
  29. thanks for help everyone
