I am 1 step closer to solving my issue here. Never dealt with more than one screen before. I have it setup on HDMI now but even at my highest resolution my screen is in a box (if you know what I mean, black bars on all sides). Any ideas on how to fix this? Seems to be nothing under windows display settings or my monitor settings.
For the problem with the black border around the screen you need to increase the overscan in the AMD catalyst control center under scaling options.
