Black border around monitor. How do I remove it?

#1 Postby troy36s » Wed May 17, 2017 1:26 pm

Hello everyone,

How do I resolve this problem, please? When I install Mepis on my computer I get a black border around my monitor. I get it on ANY operating system not only Mepis.

Does anyone know how I get it to fit the screen? I have the following graphics card:

ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics

It is driving me nuts as I have had the problem for 2 years and nothing seems to work!!

Thank you to anyone in advance who can shed some light on this matter.

get it on ANY operating system

What is the EXACT model# and brand of your monitor?
type that into google search, read any specs/review pages you find, to check whether the monitor is, or is not, capable of "edge-to-edge" display. Call it cheating, trickery, marketing... quite a few displays "look" bezel-less when powered off, but during operation they cannot fully fill the screen edge-to-edge.
