    Problem with monitor through Windows 8

    Since I just bought Windows8, my new ips LG monitor will NOT fill the full screen. Theres a black border round the edges, mouse won't go into, no way to get rid of it (with my old Samsung, this appeared but I managed to get rid of it by using the Catalyst prog, but Windows 8 says there is nothing Catalyst can change and won't let me use it)
    This is MASSIVELY annoying. Its maybe an inch thick down the sides and a three quarters of an inch top and bottom. Can't find ANYTHING in Windows 8 that lets me adjust

    Sorted. Had to find the latest Catalyst drivers (just made apparently) and thanks go to the excellent Neowin as ever.
