Can't choose my resolution in ccc


i just got my r9 290 today. after installing catalyst 13.12 from here  and restarting my screen did not fit. there are black bars around the edges. i went to the windows display settings and the resolution was at 1680x1050. I changed it to 1080p and hit apply. there were still black bars around the edges things just became smaller.After messing around with that for a while i went to the amd castalyst control center and under the desktop management tab went to desktop properties. The max resolution it would allow me to do was 1680x1050 but when i go to the my digital flat panel tab and go to properties it shows that my monitor supports up to 1920x1080.Also, when i do chose 1080p on the windows control panel it changes the settings to a 1080p tv in amd ccc but again it still has black bars. I am using hdmi and i have already uninstalled and re-installed the driver once.I have attached pictures to show what exactly i am seeing. Thanks in advanced for any solutions.post-5167-0-55610200-1395375027_thumb.pnpost-5167-0-34026400-1395375068_thumb.pnpost-5167-0-47467700-1395375091_thumb.pn

Open CCC and the Navigate to My Digital Flat Panels then click Scaling Options and mess around with the % in there. See if that fixes it.

you should update to the 14 drivers and do what ^ said

I can't really offer you any help, i'm assuming this is with a HDMI cable?


I had the same problem with a 270X, the only way i could fix it was stop using my HDMI cable and use a DVI cable instead, instant fullscreen.
