Hi I just purchased a Ati HD 6850 sapphire toxic and installed the driveres and everything and set my resolution at 1980X1050 but there are black borders that don't fill up the entire screen. Did I do something wrong? My Monitor is an Asus 24" VW246H

You set it at what res? 24" monitors tend to be either 1920x1200, or 1920x1080. 1050 monitors tend to be22" or smaller and are 1680x1050.

That's a non standard res. I suggest changing it to whatever your monitor supports.

The Asus 24" VW246H has native resolution of 1920 x 1080.

How are you connecting your monitor to the 6850? I had a similar problem with my Acer monitor and 6870. My problem was, I was using the HDMI connection and when I switched to the DVI connection, the black borders went away and the display filled the entire screen.
