    Hi there

    It could be a problem with the adapter cable.

    Sometimes as well as Auto or Fit to screen size monitors have all sorts of fancy (usually hidden) other options -- sometimes you can go into aspect ratio and there's a whole slew of options like JUST, FIT--SIDECUT etc etc. One of these will get your picture to fit the screen - but my main suspicion is the adapter cable you are using.

    Monitors are cheap enough these days -- get one with a proper HDMI setting. Of course the Video card in the computer / mobo needs to be compatible too.

    If you are using AMD with Nvidia well all bets are off I'm afraid --probably the worst combo on the planet for compatibility.

    I have a few problems, I'll just list them and what I know because frankly I can't think of the answers. Even working with computers as a job I'm still mind blown by some of these.

    Problem 1
    I have a XFX R7-260X-CNF4 R7 260X running on windows 10 x64. Anyway my monitor is quite old, well 4yr and only has VGA so I got DVI -> VGA converted, so all is fine.
    I selected 'Auto readjust' on the monitor by accident and it makes the screen completely funny, with about 1/4 black screen and the windows desktop making up the other 3/4 of the screen with a blank space at the top - i.e. its not right at all.
    I go into catalyst, change the setting from 1920 x 1080 60Hz to something else. I try changing it back to 1920 x 1080 60Hz, it doesn't work. It only selects 1600 x 1200 60Hz.
    The highest Hz I can have is 1920 x 1080 30Hz interlaced which flickers the screen and is completely unusable.
    If I do get it back to 1920 x 1080 60Hz which I have somehow before the task-bar on the bottom is completely cut off. It didn't used to be and on the 30Hz equivalent it's there?

    What it looks like on 1920 x 1080 60Hz: (There is a black space above the screen of about an inch or so).

    What it looks like on 1920 x 1080 30Hz interlaced (what it should look like on 60Hz):

    I've tried a system restore thinking it might've edited the settings and that didn't work, it got canceled halfway saying that it was unable to restore.

    Windows start menu & search won't work. They just don't function whatsoever, tried a repair, disk check and so far as I can see they fail some reason, I can try get logs although its a pain. Windows key doesn't make it appear?

    Problem 3

    Windows wifi won't automatically connect, it detects, knows the password but no matter what I do it doesn't connect.

    I have windows 10 ISO with no functioning disk drive and therefore is it possible to mount it to a 16GB Sandisk USB and therefore run a repair or something? My windows 10 has been functioning fine from around October.

    I would also run a 'refresh' or 'reinstall windows' although it threatens to uninstall things that are on my other drives such as games. None of these drives have any windows OS files on and therefore I'm unsure why it's suggesting this unless I unplug the drives and only leave the OS?

    Drive setup:
    64GB Sandisk SSD - OS
    1TB WD - Games, files etc
    320GB Seagate Barracuda - My documents, My music, My photos etc

    I'd be thankful for any help.

    Kind regards,

    windows 10 comes with the basic display adaptor... so open the device manager...look for the display adaptors...right click and update the driver...
