My post is more of a question than a problem. I picked up two Acer S230HL monitors to replace my 37" television/monitor I am now using elsewhere. The monitors both use HDMI cables but I had to use a DVI converter for one of the monitors since I only have one HDMI port. The graphics card I am using is a ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series and am running windows 7 x64.
My original problem was a "black border" around the screen image on both monitors. I thought this was due to a resolution issue of some kind from the source, but I found a setting called scaling or underscan/overscan that has removed the black border and given me a full picture. I now have the scaling option set to 0%.
It seems as though my picture is fine now, but I am trying to understand why the default for amd catalyst control center is 7% for scaling. Is this going to cause any performance issues. Should I resolve this problem with a different method? The picture still looks great but I would like to have the best possible image. Full HD 1080p etc etc.
Any knowledge or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
