Screen resolution wont fill up the whole monitor

Asked by bryan on 2012-04-01

So, I have a 1080p monitor connected through HDMI. I set my resolution to 1080p but there is still a large gap. The resolution filled up the whole screen before I Installed ati drivers for my graphics card. Is there any way I can fix this problem?

Can you give the output of:

sudo lshw -C display; lsb_release -a; uname -a

Thanks

Does the screen have an OSD to tweak?
