    Default Radeon 6870 does not fully display at full screen

    Well...I hate to say that but not sure if this is the problem of the samsung monitor or the graphic card. Here is the problem: I have bought the Samsung BX2431 monitor...The monitor isn't really that good. The stand cannot be adjusted and tend to tilt a little bit forward. However, I have two radeon 6870 installed for crossfire. As soon as I installed the drivers, the resolution was automatically detected, which was high definition 1080p with high definition cable connected to the monitor and the graphic card. This is where the problem occurs, the graphic does not look any better than my Asus. Besides this, there are black bars around the display screen and it didn't fully display at full screen that filled the screen of the monitor. So could anybody get me some help? I am not sure if it is the problem of the Samsung monitor or the graphic card. I have tried everything I could, but I was unable to fix this problem.

    Do the bars go all around the screen or are they just top or bottom?
    Does the bars appear the same for all content displayed?
    What resolution are you set at?

    If displaying a movie - it might be letterboxing - displaying either width or length at full but if the content is not the same dimensions as resolution then there is no way it can fill screen because the "screen" size of monitor and content have a different aspect ratio (ratio of height to width)

    If the above is not the issue, did you try using whatever adjustments the monitor has for adjusting the width and heighth of the image on the screen?

    you can go in ati ccc and pull the screen across to fill your monitor,eliminating the black bars,or look in the monitors settings and it should have a full screen mode if its high def monitor,again it could be a driver issue as its a new card
