I just installed a new Radeon R7 250 into my computer and I can not get the monitor to back to the way it use to look. It is now analog and it does not fit the screen. I have downloaded the drivers and I did everything that I think I was suppose to, but I still can't get it look good. Please help.

By the way, I am using an HDMI cable and after I restarted my computer it did not say analog this time, but it still does not fill the screen. I am ready to junk this graphics card and go back to running just stock.

Did you try right clicking on a blank piece of your desktop - ie one with no icons on it - then selecting 'Screen resolution' from the pop-up menu that appears ?  Then click 'detect' and set screen resolution to maximum.

 

And just for the future - how about giving people a chance to respond to your topic ?  Your first post is timed at 2000 hours and your third at 2106.

Yes, I have done that repeatedly. I have worked this problem out from so many different angles, I was hoping that maybe there might be something that you guys can think of that I don't know about.

Like I have said on this forum in several different threads, I am really new to this whole computer thing, but I am really loving it and I always feel the urge to tweak something. Well that graphics card idea went bust. I could not get the resolution to look right, it looked very distorted and the picture did not fill the screen. I took the video card out and now my system is back to its old self. I will be sending that video card back and I am going to be content with my system for now.

Why several threads ? we will answer when time permits.

As for the Video Card you can always refer to the documentation to set it up.

What size monitor do you have ? 

Try the settings within graphics setup program and configuration , eg resolution , adjust to screen edges , color etc etc.

 

but I am really loving it and I always feel the urge to tweak something

 

Maybe Patience would be better than Tweaking.

Oh no, I am sorry if I didn't say it correctly. What I meant was that on several different threads I have told the story about my new-found love for computers and how I am now indulging in this whole thing as a hobby. This is the only thread where I asked for help about this particular problem. I am sorry if I was not clear. And yes, you are right about the patience thing, but I was anxious to take my system to the next level. I am certainly going to try to proceed with caution. Thanks for your response and advice.

Hang in There and keep asking Questions , search the web for info , problem solve issues.

PCs dont have a steering wheel - but someones driving them.
