Widescreen player issue

#1
Any video I play will not play in wide screen anymore. Ever sence I upgraded to windows 7 it's been like that. I know I said this before..please forgive me. but there has to be a solution to this. Please any help?
I have an acer monitor H213H
and my video card is an ATI Radron 4830. I have the updated driver for it.
I just don't understand why my videos wont go wide screen anymore. My resolution is at the highest.
1920x1080 Please help..

Hi xdrew,
what does it say under desktop properties in the CCC? Any chance you could take a screenshot?
Also which driver are you using?

Check the screenie and the box highlighted.. See if unchecking the box makes any difference...

Check the screenshot... You have to click on the little black triangle or right-click on the tv and choose configure..
Also what are you using to play your video's?

I've done the configur.e this is what it shows me. It doesnt show me anything that says on yours. Unless you can guess what I should do from there?

I don't think the player matters. I tried using three or four different onces. Still no widescreen. I don't know why this happened, when I upgraded to windows 7. Unless it's a setting in the video card like your telling me, I think.

Wait I think I know..well not to sure. gioing to ask you. on the image scaling. It's not visable, I don't know why. and theres a dot on where it says "scale image to full panel size"
Shouldnt I put it to where it says maintain aspect ratio? I don't know how to edit that because its not visible.

It's because mines not DVI like yours...

Have you tried changing any settings in the media player? also give the player I mentioned a try..

Another thing you could try is to un-install the graphics driver and then re-install a fresh version... The other may have got corrupted somehow?

Yeah I tried. I go to aspect ratio and tried all the settings. 16:9 should be widescreen. but it shows it's already on 16:9
but it's full screen. Like I think its locked and wont go wide screen?

Not sure to be honest... I'd try re-installing the driver like I suggested but make sure you've un-installed the original first..or try these 9.11 betas... I've been using them for a while and they are much better than 9.10..

You wouldnt know how to enable GPU scaling? Maybe thats the problem... and does the beta give any problems?

I don't to be honest although this guide should have the required info:

TweakGuides.com - ATI Catalyst Tweak Guide

I don't get any problems with the beta at all..

I found this posted in the AMD forum about GPU scaling...


It's come to my attention that some people think GPU scaling is broken as it is grayed out. Well its not broken, it just doesn't enable unless you are using a lower than native resolution. So change your desktop to a lower res and then you can alter the setting as much as you like. After that you can put your monitor back to native res.

Hope that helps...
