  • hd4850 unusable with 8.6 and fglrx because black borders

    since this card is not supported on previous release and that blackborders issue came on 8.5 and 8.6, no drivers are suitable for it

    I didn't tried the open source driver yet, I don't know if this could help.
    Right now I don't care of 3D, I want to be able to display fullscreen videos, and also have a dot for dot display to browse the web on my HDTV.

    mirak63, can you post your X log somewhere ? Preferably something like pastebin so you can fit the whole thing.

          I also have a AMD 4850 card with this problem.

          On my HP 22" LCD w2207h I get black borders.
          When I instead plug in my Viewsonic 17" LCD it fills the screen fine.

            Can you please try the setting Matthew suggested in the "black borders" thread ?

            I'm guessing the HP display has an HD-compatible native resolution, maybe 1920x1080 ? Is it connected via HDMI or something else ?
