Black Bars CS:GO R9 290 AOC AG251FZ 17.2.1

So like I said in the title, I got myself a new Monitor a few days ago (AOC AGON AG251FZ / 25" Class-24.5" viewable / 240Hz). When I connected the monitor to my PC (AMD Radeon R9 200 Series / Windows 7) I also updated my AMD Driver tot he latest version.  My problem now is, that I cant play CS:GO on 16:10 1680x1050 stretched anymore, I always get black bars. I tried everything and also changed the Display Mode (GPU Scaling ON / Full Panel) and the Game Mode to Full Panel, nothing worked. So I went back to an old driver Version (17.2.1), now I can play stretched, but only at 60Hz, as soon as I turn the Hz up, my game wont stretch anymore. Maybe one of you guys has a solution fort my problem, or does atleast know an old driver version where this GPU Scaling Problem is fixed.

Thanks in advance, IDS,

leave the refresh frequency at 60hz with the new drivers & enable full screen mode & see what happens. Maybe give you registry a clean using a registry cleaner or cc cleaner. As sometimes issues arise cause of over written driver updates  screwing the registry. Every update of new thing i add to my build i run a registry cleaner as can be  enough to throw out game settings & scaling had it before or do a validation of game files as could be a courupt file in the game file throwing out the driver or maybe a bug in the system still with the new driver. Tho there is a hot fix to the latest adrenaline driver which may fix the issue now try the newest driver & hotfix & post the results.
