Hi everyone! New here! been reading around for a while now!
I'm 23 and am a student studying electronic engineering in college at the moment and computers, as well as guitars and guitar amps, are one of my main interests. I read the reviews on here all the time! If i google something it tends to lead here! So i joined!
Anyway so i'm having a problem. My Monitor displays fine and uses all the screen area on other resolutions, but when set to its native and recommended resolution, 1920x1080, the image size is reduced and doesnt fill the whole screen. there is about an inch of black at the sides and half an inch on top and bottom. My set up is as follows.
Monitor: Benq e2420hd - 24" 1920x1080 HD
GPU: Gigabyte ati radeon HD 5770
^connected with hdmi cable
Anyone else experience this problem? Is it the HDMI cable? I used a different cable, cant remem if it was DVI or VGA, but not sure if this was the case then? I've searched the forum and all over google! Rest of my set up is as follows.
Thanks for the replies guys! I found a VGA cable and a DVI adapter and switched to that and it fixed the problem. full screen HD!
BUT what you guys describes seems to be exactly the problem. i changed an overscan setting on my monitor and it fixed it slightly but not fully so i changed it back. but that link seems to be exactly right! so now i wanna switch back! will prob do it tomorrow tho.
would there be much difference between the VGA and HDMI cable? just wonderin!
