    Two monitors with different sizes

    Hi! Before saying anything else, I feel like mentioning I've searched for simmilar threads, but didn't find anything.

    So, the sittation goes like this: I've bought a second monitor I want to use for chats/browsing/etc while using the other one for gaming, or something else. The new (and currently main monitor) is 1920x1080 , and the second one is 1680x1050. I've installed it, but after I did my stuff in the screen resolution thing , I've noticed the main monitor isn't showing the full image. It has a black border, I think it is set to 1680x1050, and that thing is to correct the missing space.

    Does anybody have any ieas on how to fix it?

    additional details:
    Sapphire Radeon HD6870
    Windows 7 Ultimate
    The black border does not appear in screenshots: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/77947262/black%20border.jpg

    I'm guessing your new monitor is connected via HDMI correct? If so, open Catalyst Control Center -> My Digital Flat-Panels -> Scaling Options -> and increase Overscan.

    At least that's what fixed it on my Samsung TV that I'm using as a monitor.

    Yup, that fixed the problem. Thank you for the help, sir.
