    Windows 10 display output ~3 pixels too big.


    Hi guys,

    I have had this problem with Windows 10 for a while now wherein that Windows refuses to output an image at the correct scaling, insisting that it outputs at about 3 pixels bigger than my actual monitor size. This causes weird overlapping issues in my multi-monitor setup (For example, tooltip boarders extend around 3 pixels into the other monitor, where they should not be, and the Chrome search bar intruding on my second monitor!)
    If I boot the SAME machine back into Windows 7, these problems disappear
    Now, usually this problem is something i'd fix with overscan, but, the monitors are connected through DVI(primary) and VGA(secondary), so no overscan options are available.

    Am on latest graphics drivers.

    Running AMD R9 270x

    Any ideas on how I can fix this? It's really annoying me now :c

    This machine has an APU and there have been display issues since ... 9926 ??

    Settings doesn't report reality as your image shows - try using Control Panel > Display for accurate properties.

    The only thing I can suggest is to try the 15.5 beta driver (5/28/2015) - it's at the bottom of the main driver page.

    Catalyst driver downloads

    It might help or just be different issues

    edit: you might also use the AMD Issue Reporting Form

    Just updated the driver -- Same problem.
    I'm not aware of an APU in the machine I have..?

    sorry - this machine = my machine

    My machine has an AMD Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) - CPU/GPU on one chip.

    Guess the only thing is to wait for AMD and MS to work through the issues.
    Make sure they know about your experience.

    I was able to resolve the same issue you are reporting by going into the Catalyst Control Center and going into My Digital Flat Panels and going to Scaling Options and scaling it down. This fixed everything.
