    Hey, I'm having a weird problem with my monitor. It's a 22" HDMI monitor by Hanns-G that displays in 1920x1080.

    Whenever I start up windows, the resolution doesn't fit the entire screen. It's maybe an inch off of all four corners, inward, like it's being scaled down automatically.

    I found a simple workaround to the problem, by starting up Milkdrop vis for Winamp in fullscreen mode at 1920x1080. Once I start it up then exit the vis, it'll correct the picture to the edges of the screen (and while it's displaying the vis fullscreen). From then on the picture looks fine, no blurriness like when it's scaled down, but some games that I start up (namely valve games, which reset the resolution even if it's the same res) knock it back down to the scaled form.

    Any thoughts on how I can permanently fix this problem?

    Durr. :X Fixed my own problem.

    Yo. Posting this so people who have the same problem can fix it!
    The problem seems to be with hdmi input monitors and ATI HD Radeon cards.
    Simple fix though.
    All you do is go into the catalyst control center, go to desktop & displays, right click your display near the bottom left, go to configure, then Scaling Options, and move the slider to 0% (or whatever makes your screen look how you want it to).

    At first it wouldn't let me change this option, but in the HDTV Support tab right next to Scaling Options, you can add the res and hertz you want, then it should allow you to mess with the Scaling. \o/

    Isn't it nice when people solve their own problems? :>
