Could I safely use Nvidia Control Panel if I have a Radeon Graphics

Here's my reason. I have a program called Catalyst Control Center, it helps me change my display properties and whatnot. Good program. I don't need it.

I have a HDTV that I use as my monitor, The tv does not allow me to change its size to exactly match my computers output. Result: Every edge is off the screen. My taskbar is barely visible. The Catalyst program allows resolution changes, but always keeps the edges outside of the tv.

Nvidia Control Panel has the feature I need to move my display to fit my tv. But I am unsure if it will work without an Nvidia graphics card. I don't want my computer to blow up, you know. I think this would help LOTS of people. Thanks in advance for your answers.

As an added bonus: Are there any other programs that can adjust size and position of my screen?

Also, I'm brand new to this site, so if I posted this in the wrong place, im very sorry. I know forums can be picky.

  1. Impossible to do. The Nvidia Control Panel comes with the Nvidia drivers, therefore cannot be installed with an AMD card.
  2. Nvidia control panel will not work with the Radeon video card/drivers. You just need to adjust your scaling in CCC. I also recommend you install the latest version of Catalyst if you are not already using it. Just go here to get it:

  3. I had figured as much, it's why i asked before I tried to get it. v.v
    Thank you very much for your help. I'll see if there is a newer version of
    Catalyst. Thanks a second time!

    For your question, no you can't use nVidia CP as an alternative to CCC.

    But to solve your problem, go into Catalyst Control Center, click on preferences (right top corner), then choose advanced view.

    At your left, choose "My Digital Flat-Panels", then "Scaling Options".
    Now you can slide the slider to match your DFP resolution.

    Hope it helps! :)
  5. Also, and this is a probably way silly question... things like http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx
    Really make my head spin, I am unfamiliar with tech sites
    and support stuff like that. I realize it is asking a lot, but
    could someone please tell me how to get the latest version
    of CCC from all that tech goblediegook? I'm really sorry.
    I just get so lost.

    In the future, you should take more time to answer correctly to people. Just my advice. :)

    Do you mean the link that has all versions of Windows drivers linked to it? Pretty hard to not find what is needed there.
  11. Yea, I have to admit that this time, the link was easy to understand...
    But you could've just added a tiny bit of instructions. :)
