Screens produced after stone age usually have LCD panels with exactly as many pixels as they can display, so the overscan technology is no longer needed. But for compatibility, manufacturers still support it and even make it default.
Micrtosoft supplies drivers for my ATI graphics card. I really do not want any other software. Only thing I must have which they don't let me configure is disable annoying overscan. I found this article, which didn't help me, but gave me an idea what to do:
- Go to regedit, navigate to HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video.
- Locate a GUID with 0000, 0001, 0002 entries that has a bunch of values underneath
- Set following values:
TVEnableOverscan: DWORD = 0
DigitalHDTVDefaultUnderscan: DWORD = 0
