[Solved] New Build Monitor - Hard Drive

I just had my system built, ran it the first time and i can't get the monitor screen to be full screen. It's a Samsung 24" LED Monitor, control panel>screen resolution> 1920x1080, i can't set it higher, the borders are quite visible and i'm unable get the full screen. The monitor is connected via HDMI cable to video card.

Additionally, i also have an internal hard drive but it's undetected, after booting the computer, hard drive is inaccessible, i don't see it, OS is installed on SSD and it works fine.

Any help would be appreciated.

  1. Switch of the over/underscan in nvidia control panel to get the full size.
    Is the HDD detected in bios? Do you see it in disk management? Is it initalised / formated?

    Used Nvidia Control Panel to adjust the screen resolution. Solved !
    The disk was in disk management as unallocated space, set it as a new volume, working now. Solved !

    Thanks.
