Unable to Stretch My Display Resolution (Black Bars)

Question asked by nrhagen on Jan 29, 2019



I am currently trying to stretch my resolution from 1920 x 1080 to 1440 x 1080.  I have created a custom resolution, however when I change to that custom resolution in my Windows display settings, I get black bars on either side of my display, rather than it stretching to fit the entire panel.  I also have scaling mode set to full panel and GPU scaling on, which is what seems to be the common fix for this problem.  Also I have my Radeon Software Version updated to the most recent 19.1.1. Is there any way that I can stretch my display resolution without getting these black bars?  Thanks for the support.


My monitor is a BenQ XL2411z, and I have the AMD Radeon R9 200 Series if that helps.


One other weird thing is that when I switch to this resolution, but change the orientation to landscape (flipped) I do not get the black bars on each side.  Thanks again.
