I recently bought a new monitor LG IPS236 to be exact and when using DVI cable no problem relating to black border.
Today I was curious and wanted to see if HDMI give me any better picture quality but then I get this black border around my screen and it irritates me a lot lol
I tried Google but people said go to ATI CCC (Catalst Control Center) but I found out I dont have this. Normally I would right click my screen and it's right there but some how it's not.I want to know is there a way to get this CCC or another solution to fix this black border so I can experience the HDMI

You may want to try downloading the latest drivers, uninstalling the drivers and try to install the new one.
If you need a way to fully remove the drivers. Driver Sweeper may be the way to go...
I actually did used the Driver Sweeper to remove the older driver and Catalyst 11.11 is the latestEven when I go to Start and type in Catalyst, the software doesn't appear in there... Am I out of luck or just have to wait for the next driver 11.12 [:'(]
you can also try in win 7. Right click on the desk top and bring up the screen resolution window. Next click on the "Advanced Settings" its a blue text. From there it will bring up another windows telling you about your graphics card and there will be a tab saying catalyst control center.

"To fix your issue with the black borders follow this:
1) Right click on the Desktop or the programs tabs in the start menu and open Catalyst Control Center
2) Switch to Advanced mode if you are not there already 3) Click dropdown menu Graphics in the top right 4) Select Desktops and Displays 5) Right Click your currently activated display under `Please Select a Display' on the bottom right 6) Select Configure 7) Click on the Scaling Options tab and your there 8) Now, just move the scale to the right (overscan) until you get full screen (in most peoples cases, it was 0%)
thanks for the info guys. it'll really help me.
