HD Monitor help

by bopci / June 8, 2011 3:26 AM PDT

I am running an ATI Radeon 5450 1GB DDR3 in HD 1920 x 1080 mode. I am using an HDMI cable.
I recently had a crash and Dell actually helped a lot over a period of a few days to restore my system.
I notice my monitor has a black 1/4 inch border on the top and the sides about 1 inch. I don't recall this prior to the crash. There is no option in Display for scaling; the only option is Landscape and Portrait either regular or flipped.My options on the 23" moniotor itself is set to "Wide" and "Fill". Is this normal and I never noticed it before? If not normal, how do I get the screen tpo fill the entire monitor arera.
