I have a Asus G73JH notebook with a Radeon Mobile 5870 gfx and a 17" 1920*1080 screen.
OS is win7 64-bit.
When connecting it to my 23" Asus H236 @ 1920*1080 using the HDMI cable, I get a black border all around the picture on the Asus H236 monitor and text is a bit fuzzy. Screen on the notebook looks correct.
Win7 reports both the notebook screen and the attached monitor as running at 1920*1080. Win7 also correctly reports the name of both the notebook screen and the Asus monitor
The CCC seems to believe my Asus monitor is a HDTV but setting it to run 1080p doesn't change anything (black frame stays, text is fuzzy). The non-HDTV monitor resolutions I can select are all lower than the default for the Asus monitor. The CCC also sets the refresh rate to 59hz instead of 60hz.
CCC reports notebook screen as Generic PnP screen, and monitor as Generic PnP monitor.
When using the overscan slider to make the desktop fill out the Asus monitor, the text gets sharp but the icons are clearly enlarged.
When running a game, it runs with a black border around it ignoring the overscan setting even though the game is set to run 1920*1080.
The Asus monitor is normally used with my PC (running GTX 580) with no problems what-so-ever.
I did not have this problem with the original graphics driver/CCC. Rolling back is not a solution as that makes it impossible to run certain games.
Anyone have a solution?
Also, do anyone else have the same problem? (Black border on external monitor connected to a labtop/notebook using HDMI)
