AOC i2535 monitor. Black border

Discussion in 'DIY Computers' started by Michael Chare, Feb 12, 2012.

  1. I have just bought an AOC i2535 monitor 1920*1080.

    When I connected this to my PC which has a Sapphire HD5670 graphics card
    using either the DVI or HDMI output I always get a black border round the
    Windows 7 desktop. The black border is about 1" wide.

    Windows 7 says that it is outputting 1920*1080. The black border also
    appears during the bios POST.

    Is there a way to get rid of this border?

    If I connect my laptop to the display using an HDMI cable, I get the black
    border if the laptop is set to use both its own and the i2535. However if
    the laptop is set to just use the i2535 then there is no black border.

    Are you using the monitor's native vertical refresh rate?

  3. The monitor accepts either 50 or 60Hz. No obvious difference.

  4. Thanks, I have found the setting now. For some reason it was under
    scanning. Never had that problem with my 1600*1200 display.

  5. Your monitor perhaps identifies itself as a TV, or the driver software
    makes a bad assumption on seeing a 1080p device. I've had trouble with
    getting 1:1 pixel correspondance on TV-like screens before, too -
    though not with Windows. Overscan/underscan is an unnecessary
    irritation on non-SD screens.
