New video card installed (r9 290) - the screen was smaller than the monitor, it wouldn't "fill" it up or stretch properly.  So I went into Catalyst Control Center and went to fiddle with the under/overscaling under "My Flat Panels" tab.  As soon as I opened that tab, the screen filled up to normal and all of a sudden all the color went out of the screen, so I'm stuck in grayscale with no idea what to do.  Any ideas?

 

First thing I'm going to do, which is right now, is re-install driver(s).

In fact, I tried to uninstall-reinstall a second time and midway through the uninstall got a BSOD.

2nd attempt at uninstall-reinstall worked, though the same problem where the display is about at 85-90% of the monitor exists.  Is the GPU capable of going so much above 1920x1080 that 1920x1080 is too small?

Your problem seems to be had by sufficient numbers that I see it as a driver issue.  See http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1927734/black-screen-installing-amd-drivers-radeon-290.html .

 

Max resolution supported by the card...cannot eclipse the max resolution supported by your monitor.
