I just got a Sumsung S22A350 but sometimes, the OS shows the resolution is 1920 x 1080 but not the entire screen is filled. Its as it the "OS Screen" has a "black border", hope you get what I mean. This happens sometimes both in Ubuntu & Windows 7 x64

I find that when I change to some lower resolution, the entire screen is filled but stretched.

How are you connecting to the monitor? HDMI or VGA?

not sure if this may lead to an answer but my 2nd monitor does that when under the "extend desktop to this display" option.....if i use it as my primary display it displays correctly.....very confusing

This always happens to me when I output the video from PC to TV via HDMI. I have to change the scaling in the ATI CCC.

Go into Catalyst Control Center > My Digital Flat Panels > Scaling Options (Digital Flat-panel) and reduce overscan to 0%.

This is of course if you've not already sorted this issue, best of luck to you :)
