    Hey Guys.

    I just finished building my new PC and I have an ASUS ATI Radeon 7970 Video card in it.

    I have my Resolution set at 1920x1080 but it still doesnt fill my whole screen.

    I don't really know what to do.

    I'm using an ASUS mx279 monitor.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Also I have another problem too. Wrong section but to save posts. I have 2SSD and 2 HDD.

    Only the one SSD is showing up.

    None of the HDD's are showing up at all.

    Does your monitor have an auto adjust button?

    Also, the drives that aren't showing in Windows do they appear in BIOS? Are the formatted?

    Try to fill us with your full HW specs :)
    As for screen fill - Try to look in Catalyst Control Center for : Underscan/OVerscan and move slider, or mess with "Enable GPU Scaling" in MY digital Flat pannel Submenu.

    You will have to format the drives through disk management for them to show up in explorer.The under scan I just went through that when I switched to a 7870 a couple of days ago and it is fixed with CCC. When I re-installed a new set of drivers it fixed itself without using the under scan slider.

    I still have not gotten my screen to work. It is absolutely ridiculous.

    I have updated all my drivers, and there is nothing wrong with my other screen. Its just the one.

    I have tried to mess around with the actual screen controls itself but I couldn't get that to work either......

    Maybe try to mess with monitor menu bit more.
    According to http://www.asus.com/Monitors_Projectors/MX279H/
    it has some "QuickFit Virtual Scale" feature and may have some more.
    My BenQ XL2420T can reduce display area from 24" to 17"~23", enforce aspect ratio (4:3/16:9/...) and actual scaling of input per pixel (Full/Keep Aspect/1:1pixel=pretty small area for 640x480 resolution).
    Your monitor features may incorporate similar stuff. One of things which may do it is factory reset.

    Try these settings if you haven't already, otherwise it is probably a problem with the monitor. I've never heard of something having underscan, it is usually overscan, at least with TVs.
