I am having an issue with a Viore monitor on a Dell Optiplex 780 running Windows 7. I set my screen resolution to 1920x1080 and my monitor is a 1920x1080 but I still have a black bar about two inches on the left and it will not fill it at all.

Underscan Percentage is already set at 0 in the Intel Graphics Properties so that is not the issue like every website says to do. because it is already set at that.

And I cannot disable scaling because the only options are "maintain display scaling" and "Custom Resolution" both of which leave the black bar.

Might I mention that everything is blurred because it is not really on 1920x1080 unlike my PC says because of the black bars.

Install Proper Drivers first. 

Also check with the physical settings of the monitor. (Orientation, Zooming, Scaling) 

And also Cables check of they are properly connected.

Also check and clean registry and any other cleaning.

If all of the above conditions are good then the monitor might have gone bad.

All the above are good, I checked, and the monitor is not bad because it works fine on a Windows XP machine.

 

But it still does this

No help?? :(

 

 

I tried uninstalling the Intel driver completely, letting Windows install the generic driver, and then reinstalling the Intel driver. And it was working for a little bit, no black bars, filling the entire screen. But my display automatically turned off due to inactivity and when I moved the mouse, I am back to square 1! I have the black bar again, and nothing I do will fit the screen. This is definitely a driver issue, and I don't want to have to constantly uninstall the Intel driver nonstop just to get full screen.

 

Can I please get some help?

Perhaps the Operating System might be a culprit.

 

This is not a actual solution but check by running any Linux Live CD (Linux Mint or Puppy Linux) on your system and check how the monitor is functioning on Linux.
