Hey, first post here at the forums, looking for help.

I got my HDMI cable in the mail today and I tried it as soon as I could. I got an LG 24" Full HD with 1920x1080 resolution and an... a little old Eizo screen. I don't know the inches but the resolution is 1280x1024.
My graphics card is msi Radeon HD 5850 Twin Frozr II.

So the problem is, I connected the HDMI to my LG screen and the DVI to my Eizo screen. The Eizo screen works perfectly, but the LG screen's quality turned bad and it doesn't use all of the screen. This is really annoying, because I want it to use the whole screen, and the quality... I'll just say that when I look at the Eizo screen, it feels like heaven. My LG screen is FULL HD and the Eizo is not, the Eizo shouldn't have better quality...

So I hope you understand all I wrote and I hope I get some help soon ^^ Thanks in advance.

Is the LG properly recognized? What resolution is the LG running at? ...you may have to manually change the LG resolution.

The LG is 1920x1080 resolution. My friend told me that there is too big difference between the screens. But i tried to only connect theLG too but still bad quality and doesnt use all of the screen.

TV's often overscan or underscan. nVidia drivers have an option to adjust the image to make it fit the screen, I would assume the ATI drivers have something similar, but I've not had a TV connected to an ATI card.

My friend got knowledge in nVidia drivers, but I got ATI. I have no idea where to get an ATI driver tbh. I didnt found any driver at msi.com.
