    Radeon HD 4200 driver for 64-bit Win10 [Alternative Fix]


    Disclaimer:
    I am not an expert. I found this info posted by others and it may help folks still seeking a solution. The PhilGates method at thread ATI Radeon HD 4200 driver for 64-bit Windows 10? worked for me.
    Solved ATI Radeon HD 4200 driver for 64-bit Windows 10? - Page 3 - Windows 10 Forums

    However, I decided I don't really use Catalyst Control Center so simply fixing the underscan-default setting in the registry (that AMD opted for) was simplest.

    Thanks again to everyone at all the posts that contributed to solve this problem.

    AMD Radeon HD 4000 Series Overscan / Underscan ... | Community

    NOTE: Backup of Reg Key!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This is the original code for the registry key that I modified. I copied and saved from the backup of registry. Must first change registry backup to open with Notepad. Then a lot of scrolling down to get to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\

    Backup of original key:
    "DALR6 DFP1920x1080x0x60"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\
    00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,08,00,00,00,01,\
    00,00,00,02,00,00,00

    It goes in 0000 & 0001 (because I have 2 monitors). I modified the 59 & 60 refresh rates with all 00's as instructed below in the detailed How-To.

    Actual Post at AMD Radeon HD 4000 Series Overscan / Underscan ... | Community :

    After a good amount of searching and reading through posts on these forums of people replying in an irritated way that the 4000 series is

    outdated and isn't supported and wont work with Windows 10, I found a fix that was posted/works. I'm reposting it here so that others may

    hopefully find it easier. Also as a note to those who just said buy a new card or go back to windows 7, don't give up so easily, if you don't

    know the answer you don't have to post something. If you have an idea that may help, post that, but there's no need to get frustrated because people ask the same question over, just ignore it or help them find the answer they're looking for. Thanks!

    I believe this will remove the overscan/underscan for any AMD card but I have only tested it on a Radeon Mobility HD 4200.

    TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK, editing the registry can cause serious problems.

    On to the fix!
    •In windows 10 click Cortana, search for "regedit", and run it.
    •Click File, Export and save as "backup" to wherever you want, just in case something goes wrong you can revert it back.
    •On the left navigate to the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\
    •In this folder there will be multiple folders with long names, look for the one with a folder inside named "0000", there will be a ton of other settings, on the right, once you find the right one.

    As an example the folder name my "0000" was located in is "{55038BE3-BCB9-4757-9ACF-05AC30F7CBF9}"
    •Next right click the "0000" folder and click "Find", search for the resolution you are using, in my case it was 1920x1080.
    •It will highlight it on the right, for me it was "DALR6 DFPI 21920x1080x0x59", the last number is the refresh rate for the screen, look for the refresh rate you use if the first one it highlights is not the one.
    •Right click the highlighted name and click Modify
    •Here we want to change all the numbers on the right of the first column of 4 digit numbers to 00's. Put your cursor before the number you want to change, press the "Del" key, then press "0". Two 0's will appear.
    •Click OK, minimize the registry and right click the desktop, Display Settings, Advanced Display Settings, and change the resolution to anything else, then back to the resolution you edited in regedit.
    Your underscan should be gone! (Edit: If changing resolution doesn't work, try rebooting.)

    Just to add to this, I've got both an HD4350 and HD4500 and this works great on it. I had to reboot though for the overscan to resolve itself. Changing resolution didn't work. Also, there was two entries for 1920x1080 with 59 and 60hz. Deleted the 60hz also as wasn't being used. The rebooted, and great news, no black borders.

    Other replies on this thread:
    It just follow your instructions, step by step, and I found more than one "0000", and also "0001", then I modify them all.

    Follow the next steps, now my black borders gone!

    I should update my previous post. I had another go at this and got it working using the above. I made sure I set the registry settings for both my monitors as is indicated above (folders "0000" and "0001"). I then deleted any other display resolution in the regsitry as is mentioned in the comments above leaving just "DALR6 DFPI 21920x1080x0x60" and set the monitor refresh rate to this (60 hertz) before following the last step:

    •Click OK, minimize the registry and right click the desktop, Display Settings, Advanced Display Settings, and change the resolution to anything else, then back to the resolution you edited in regedit. Your underscan should be gone! (Edit: If changing resolution doesn't work, try rebooting.)

    It took a bit of playing about but now seems to be working fine. Thanks very much for this!

    Leecifer, just a note to THANK-YOU for locating and posting this method for getting rid of the empty space between the viewable window and the physical edge of my Samsung XL2370 monitor. After upgrading to Windows 10 over 2 months ago, I've tried lots of methods to get the AMD Catalyst Control Center working with my AMD 4350-HD video card that came with this HP PC in 2009. With Windows 7, I used the CCC to adjust the overscan/underscan of the monitor after every display driver update.

    I was searching for a "miracle fix" and found your post! That registry editing method works perfectly. All I had to change was that "08" setting to "04", then change my monitor resolution to something else and then back to 1920x1080 again, for a PERFECT snug fit of my window against the edge of the screen! Couldn't find the 59mhz refresh rate that this monitor is supposed to use, but that's cool. There's only 1mhz difference between 59mhz and the 60mhz rate that I now have. Can't see any difference at all. Once again, thank-you very much, Leecifer.
