I have a Dell i7 Studio xps.435mt with an ATI Radeon HD 4600. I recently upgraded to Win8.1 and added a Dell 2714T monitor via HDMI. The display does not fill the monitor, leaving a 1" black band on each side and 3/4" at top and bottom.
Online searches reveal this is an HDMI default settings problem. The solution is to reset something in CCC. My problem is I can't get the Catalyst Control Center to run. When I run it, it pops up a box that says "Catalyst Control Center cannot be started. There are currently no settings that can be configured using Catalyst Control Center".
I have done the complete reinstall. I've used AMD Driver Autodetect Utility, and also manually selected driver 126.96.36.199, and also the 13.4 Beta. The download and install Notes says the AMD Display Driver "Fail 8.970.100.0000".
Device Manager says current Driver is AMD 188.8.131.52 6/20/2012, and Update Driver says this is the latest. I've tried Uninstalling the card in Device Manager then restarting. My screen goes to 1280x1024 resolution with a generic VGA driver until I unblock the ATI Radeon Card and 1920x1080 is restored, but CCC still gives same message.
I need to get CCC to run so I can use this 27" monitor. Help please.
