Cannot display Full Screen using ATI (AMD) Radeon ?

Cannot display Full Screen using ATI Radeon ?

I just tried on a Samsung 24″ S24A350H, and I’ve test with VGA output from display card to the Monitor working fine with 1920 x 1080 60Hz. There is a HDMI port in this monitor and I’ve DVI output from my ATI Radeon 5750. So I plug the DVI to DVI -> HDMI converter to the monitor, and installed all the newest drivers from Samsung and face a problem that the screen cannot be full like the image below.

The corner do not stick to the screen

I’ve set the settings to 1920 x 1080 with 60 Hz. But the screen is not getting full. So I found the solution about this.

Solution to solve

Download and install the latest version of AMD Catalyst Software Suite from AMD official website in here.

The current version I download while writing this article is Catalyst Software Suite 100.9 MB 11.11 11/15/2011.

After install and restart, then right click on your Desktop and click for the Catalyst Control Center

Then it will open up the AMD Catalyst Control Center.

On the left menu, click on My Digital Flat-Panels.
Select the Scaling Options ( Digital Flat-Panels).
Drag from Underscan (15%) to Overscan (0%) until the screen full to the corner of your monitor.

You can see now the screen fit to your monitor and display nicely.

Other Samsung monitor could be solve using this way.

  • kimw

    Hey there! When I do like you said, its working but when im restarting my computer is back again and everytime im starting it,  goes back to default settings?

  • epos

    Nice tweak but after the restart its underscaned again altought the value in CCC stills on overscan 0%. I have to move the slider to correct it! It is realy a strange behavior. Do you have any idea how to set this pernamently???

  • devsarangi

    Thanks for the scaling tip. I have a AOC 27″ monitor. After updating to windows 8.1 on a AMD 7500 HD graphics driver, i was getting the scaling issue. Your tip worked great in getting a full screen again. I will see how this performs over some time and will let you know in  case something goes wrong again.

  • Brent

    Legend! Thank you.

    Thanks! After reading this, the solution seemed simple. This saved me quite a bit of frustration :)

  • Atori Nagiza

    Trank you :)

  • Unex Skcus

    AWESOME! Thanks mate, I’ve been going nuts trying to Google an answer to this. Although why the ‘default’ (?) setting in Catalyst appears to have been 10% Underscan is something I can’t understand.

    Again – thank you Justin!

    New ATI Catalyst Center a. doesn’t load, b. when it did (before it quit loading) it didn’t have any scaling options – or many options to speak of at all. Have a beautiful 1920×1080 27″ monitor with black borders around the display just as in the image above. Nothing on any forums work.

  • Henrique Schmidt

    Sooo simple solution and so dumb from AMD/Samsung, a big thanx for Justin!

  • fireboss

    I use my 67″ Samsung for viewing Baseball with MLB,TV The computer is usually shut down in the winter and this spring when I updated everything I had to tip out catalyst and reinstall from scratch. I knew about the scaling option so I was able to get the screen to fit the panel but it isn’t centered, there’s about a 1 inch car on the right side. Not something that i can’t live with but it wasn’t there last year. Ideas?

  • LIJ

    Overscan did help, and works fine horizontally, however it stretches the screen a little bit too much vertically, is there any way to fix this?

  • Dingo

    Thank you soooo very much! I searched every corner of the internet for this and I’ve finally found the solution through your post.Thanks again! :)

  • Yassine Jdir

    thank you <3

  • Daryl Pimentel

    Bro, thanks so much for this, but to let others know if anyone cant find My Digital Flat-Panels means the advanced preferences are disable (my case) just click on Advance View.
