    different resolutions but same size monitors?

    I just recently got a 2nd monitor for my setup and the new monitor seems to not be using the full screen even though it's set to 1920x1080. It's a 23.6 inch led asus monitor. My old monitor has no problem but my first one doesn't extend all the way. I tried right clicking on the desktop and selecting resolution it doesn't seem to work. If I lower it to a lower resolution, it changes but the icons get all big and shit. How do I fix this?

    I am running dual monitors.

    What is the model# of the new monitor?

    edit: Looks like all the models in that size-range are all 1080p screens. Have you tried changing the resolution from your video card's control center(Catalyst or Nvidia control panel) and what card do you have?

    If you must insist on using a non-sanctioned sitting apparatus, please consider the tensile strength
    of the materials present in the object in question in comparison to your own mass volumetric density.

    In other words, stop breaking shit with your fat ass.

    There's about a 1 inch border around the entire thing. The part above my search tabs, obviously http://imgur.com/1p9oyNG

    If its an AMD card go into the Catalyst Control Center, click My Digital Flat-Panels then click on Scaling options. Make sure the slider is all the way to the right by Overscan above 0%.

    Can you get into the menu via the controls on the panel and does it have a "zoom" or "stretch" sort of adjustment? Have you tried using the new panel in the same output slot as the old panel and see if the black-bars still happen?

    Why would something like that be enabled in the first place o.O

    Beats me. It made me go crazy for like 4 hours and almost return a monitor.

    Glad it worked Traxex9080.
