Desktop is not full screen

Hey all, I hope this is the right category...

I recently got a new computer (i7-860 and HD5770 video card) but my desktop is not full screen (about an inch of black all around). Im connected by HDMI, and the monitor is a HP2210m (max res 1920x1080, 70 Hz). The setup is currently at 1080p, 60 Hz.

It does however run FSX full screen.

Any ideas?
Thanks

  1. Open Catalyst Control Center, and enable GPU overscan. I am sorry that I don't remember the exact process since I switched to nVidia, but if you search for how to enable gpu scaling ati 5770 you will find it. You will need to be able to slide a bar all the way to the left to fill up the screen, but I am sorry I don't remember the exact process, but I did have to do it a few times myself.
  2. Will here deserves best answer because this just saved my bacon!
  3. Thank you Willmalcom thats it just open the Catalyst and search in the box "scaling option" and adjust the screen manually to overscan.
