    Try starting over - power everything down, disconnect the monitor, remove power form the monitor and wait at least 30 seconds.

    Power up the monitor and see what options are given (language, resolution, ???)

    I'm not sure but that should set the defaults for the monitor - from your screen it looks as though the pitch is not right.
    Are there buttons on the monitor or is just on-screen configuration?
    I can adjust my monitor using buttons on the bottom right of the frame (near the power button)

    Once you monitor is 'reset' power it down and reconnect it to your machine.

    Here's the manual that I found for Samsung SyncMaster B2230 (in it there are settings for B2230, B2230N, and B2230W)
    Manual (PDF)
    The menu is in 3-14 (see reset)
    From this page which has some help topics at the bottom.

    If it Windows, try setting the Samsung as your primary - do not clone it.

    I recall a similar issue where I had to reset the DPI scaling (your taskbar off the bottom reminded me of this). I think Windows gets confused and you have to 'toggle' the setting higher, then lower or visa versa.

    Also check your resolution in Control Panel Display - I think I also had to drive that up or down before the issue was 'resolved'.

    But start from a known base - reset your physical monitor, then twiddle with Windows settings (I'd venture it is not the GPU)

    Good luck - that's all I have to offer.

    I'll try the first step once I get a chance.

    On the monitor you have the options as seen, there isn't a lot. V-Position seems the one I need to change but it physically won't budge when you try holding down the buttons although H-Position does.

    I've tried the reset button and I don't think it did much, I certainly didn't notice a change in settings or display.

    I don't clone them, however I was duplicating the monitors as it enabled other options on Catalyst. I noticed Sync needs to be enabled to interact with the Samsung monitor settings, scaling is enabled which then sizes it to the screen fine - but somewhere it believe's there is a 1600 x 900 max res in Catalyst when Scaling or EDID is enabled - not sure where this setting is but it's won't go higher.

    It's just annoying because it worked fine and then suddenly one button and it goes completely awol.

    Not sure whether its best just to admit defeat and purchase a newer monitor which doesn't have such ridiculous settings and has DVI, Hdmi etc slots.

    - Might need a new SSD seen as SFC /scannow doesn't even run past 2% which is worrying.

    Hold on to your money for the moment. If the monitor works well on you base system, then it's Win10 - a preview OS that's most likely the culprit.

    SFC doesn't gauge the condition of your SSD (and it's been known to have issues since the first TP). If you want to test your SSD, go to the Mfgr site and use their tool.

    It's your call when to say "uncle", but remember, this (Win10) is very early code.

    IF I think of anything else, I'll post it. There are lots of members that can help out, so hang tight someone might drop by your thread with a solution.

    CountMike has been helping you - it sounds as though his setup is fairly close to yours (except the monitor) - he might have more to give.

    I was thinking about a new one regardless so it's a bit like urgh it's not worth the hassle kinda thing.

    It cannot be WIN 10 based on the fact I used to have a 5560? I think it was anyway, that worked fine detecting, picking up the monitor and such but I believe it's down to the fact the monitor's old, it has no dvi hdmi etc and therefore it cannot detect the screen properly and shows as NON-PNP-Monitor when it should show as like my other monitor (Toshiba-Tv- something or other).

    I'll try Mfgr although I do believe the SSD is going out the trotter, I got two identical SSD's and the first one's died so the 2nd one is likely in my own honest opinion.

    Hopefully someone has a clue, spent a good day and a half trying to fix this to no avail. Two Windows reinstalls later and hopefully I'm closer.

    Although it does appear now the 'SYNC' setting has vanished completely?

    AMD released new drivers this week for Windows 10 technical preview, but I still got problem like Mathew.

    I also have one monitor with DVI connected and TV connected with HDMI, cannot get 1920x1080 on monitor.
    In Catalyst center there is no option to set full hd resolution (see attachment).

    Click image for larger version.

    New build (10166) is now out so try a clean install with that version and see if this issue has been fixed.

    Just finished clean installing new build 10240 which is refereed as RTM version without HDMI plugged in graphic card as second monitor, still same... In windows display properties or Catalyst cannot set this monitor to full HD resolution - and it's driving me insane now!
    Monitor is LG W2243S. Maybe is problem with monitor?! Should I buy new one?!

    Any new ideas? I think that I will go back to Win8
