I just got done building a new PC, and I this is the first time I have actually used Catalyst Control Center. And after installing the updated graphic driver and everything by desktop is not span accrossed my whole screen. I have a 24" monitor and its showing like its on a 20" monitor.

I looked through my monitor and everything and I can't use it to stretch out the screen, is there something in CCC that will fix this?

And my resolution is sitting at 1920x1080, at 60hertz, so I don't know why its not working.

Pix? Did you try adjusting the resolution? And is it like that online and in all programs or just the desktop?

I would assume that you are in fact using a DVI or an HDMI cable and not a vga....correct??
