    Dual monitor issue

    Hi Guys,

    My computer just had the most recent update and its caused me a problem with my 2nd monitor.

    My main monitor is connected via HDMI and my 2nd is via DVI cable both to my graphics card. Since the update the screen still displays in its native 1920 x 1080 but the screen is blurry (not just the text). This was not an issue before the update and both monitors worked great. The 2nd Monitor is a Dell ST2220.

    Things I have tried:

    Reinstalling the graphics card drivers and make sure they are updated.
    Tried to get driver for the monitor through Dell but according to the website Windows 10 did not require a driver for my monitor
    Turned monitors on/off tried them separately etc and still seem to have the same problem.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    sounds like a HDMI overscan issue to me, anything between 5-15% - that can be handled by setting it from the gfx card software settings or checking the monitor / TV setup that it has overscan OFF.

    thats my 5 cents
