Thin black border around laptop screen. Please help.

Q: Thin black border around laptop screen. Please help.

Hi,
I have a Samsung NP350V5C-A02UK and it is a great laptop. However, recently I have noticed a thin black border around the screen. I couldn't get a good picture with my camera but it looks very similar to this picture http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3519/t/19434351.aspx however, it is just a little thicker on my screen. I am not sure if it was there since I bought the laptop however, I am pretty sure it wasn't. Could any one please tell me how to fix this or if this is normal on all laptops.
Any replies will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Alex.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have this very thin black border at the top of my LED display, it's there with both HDMI and VGA so its not some scaling issue.The border is very thin and not at the top most, I can see the image like less than 1mm above the border too.Didn't had this issue on Windows 7, tried everything from re-installing drivers and mess with ATI settings but no avail.I don't have this black border in the bios either.
Tried taking a screenshot but it wasn't showing there, sorry.

Could it be a sudden issue with my display ? I just got it a few months back, its a Fujitsu 23" LED display and running at 1920x1080 resolution.My GPU is a 7850.

Any help will be appreciated.

Edit: I also checked on my laptop, there is a very very thin border at the top there too across which I could see the top edge of my cursor.

I seriously don't know what happened to my computer recently. Yesterday I was trying to boot my computer in safe mode and when I turn on computer in normal mode, it showed a black border around the screen. I tried to check my setting(resolution and graphic card setting but still, the problem exists) My resolution is 1366 by 768 which is the native resolution and my graphic card is NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M. Is there anything that I can solve it? The border is about 1cm think, it is around the whole screen and my screen size is 14.1inch.

Hi there.
Just updated from W7RC, where I was running both of my monitors (Benq 24" + 19") on extend desktop - had no problems at all.
I am now running W7 Ultimate (OEM), and I have the same graphics card (ATI Radeon 5770), same RAM and same CPU. I have a new motherboard and new HDDs.

I've managed to get it so that the desktop is extended the right way, however, this black border was not around last time and I can't figure out a way to get rid of it.
The settings I was able to use last time (in the monitor's menu) are no longer accessible, and Catalyst gives me no options to brute force override.

How the hell do I get rid of this black border!?

G'day everyone, here's a problem I've encountered with the settings on my CRT, it's 17" screen and the camera software advises to use 1024 x 768 pixels, but when I set the screen too this there is a band of black around the edge of the screen and the viewing area reduces to about 15", anyone got any idea how I can get a full screen image with the recommended pixel settings. Thanks in advance. Regards Nigel.

There should be controls on the screen itself for that. You will scroll through until you get to the ones with expand arrows going up down and left right. Then you get to functions that adjust the entire display left right and up down for fine tuning.

I suddenly had a problem.
I rebooted, and then there was a black border on the right side of my screen, even in the bios and on my Ubuntu boot. The resolution that is apparently the max is 1200x800, where as my original resolution was 1366x768.
I tried to update the monitor driver, but it's apparently up to date, calling it a
"Digital Flat Panel (1024x768 60Hz)".
Updating the graphics card driver for my Mobile Intel Chipset didn't help either.

If anyone could help with this, I'd be extremely grateful.

I turned my laptop on today and there is a black border meaning that the screen is not being used completely, like it was yesterday. I measured the part of the screen being used and it measured 15.6" and it is advertised as that, but I am 100% sure that this black border was not here yesterday, or ever before. As seen in this Inspiron 5547 video at 2:19, the entire screen is being used and there is no black border  however on my 5547 there is a clearly visible black border which i used my ceiling fan light to show exactly where it is and how thick it is. This is in no way my fault and is apparently a known issue with this model, yet I am still expected to pay for a screen replacement. This will not be happening and I will gladly switch to a different brand(after being a 10+ year dell customer) if I must do so.

While searching online i've not managed to find any solution to it and the only suggestions were update bios(done).
Someone else on the EVGA forums was adamant that it was due to the scaling options of my monitor.

A:Dell Inspiron 5547 Black Border around screen

The product in the product video has the same black border.It can not be "'fixed''Some of the photos do not seem to have this which is pretty poor form, but the screen size and resolution are as promised.Personally, I would've liked a smaller laptop overall, but if it had to be this size, then I would rather small bezels and a black border, than big slabs of plastic on all sides. It makes it look better when its off and I don't notice it that much.I've also heard people say that this is to do with the touch functionality?? Maybe it gives you a better ability to swipe in from the sides... I don't know.Still, there is nothing wrong with your laptop. If this is a deal breaker for you, you might have a decent argument under consumer laws to get a refund. They really can't show pictures that cover this up and make the screen seem bigger than it is. But the video was there, and the specs are all honest.

So recently I decided to try to update my display drivers for my Asus Radeon HD 7770 Graphics card in hopes that it would fix some problems I was having. After I finished the update and rebooted there was a black border around my screen.

I have dual monitors, one monitors (the one with the black border) resolution is 1920x1080 and is connected via HTMI and the others is 1680x1050 and is connected via DVI. Only the monitor with the resolution of 1920x1080 has the black border not the second one.

I have also done a lot of research on how to fix this and the most common solution seemed to be to change the overscan settings but I do not have the normal Catalyst Control Center i have something called AMD Vision Engine Control Center and when I open that and go the the display settings the only option is HydraVision which does not seem to have any options to help me.

And one last thing, it seems like the image might be a bit fuzzy or blurry but that might just be a result of the smaller image.

If there are any questions just ask and I will answer them to the best of my ability.
Update : Also, I did check my physical monitors settings and it is set to full and not overscan.
Update 2: - OS is Windows 7 64-Bit
Update 3: I woul rather not roll back the drivers as they were starting to cause problems too.

Hi Kerberg, Can you try the following troubleshooting steps to see if it's hardware/software issue: - Connect the notebook to an external monitor to see if the line appears on the external monitor. - Go into BIOS by tapping "F10" key during boot up and see if the line appears on your main display. If it doesn't occur in BIOS, the hardware is good. We will have to focus on video drivers- onboard and discrete card. If the line appears on the screen, please call 800-334-5144, say notebook and then zbook through the promot. Thank you, -Tenzin

Hi,

Had IBM Thinkpad 600E fixed under warranty for faulty screen (which had ceased to work) - problem turned out to be faulty motherboard, and motherboard was replaced.
Since getting the laptop back, there is a thin (about 4mm) vertical grey band down the entire screen which obliterates whatever is behind it. This line is about a cm in from the left hand side.
the band comes on from start up...ie through the black POST screen, and if operating in DOS - the same. The correct drivers and refresh rates, etc were already loaded. OS is Win98SE.
Wondering if it could be caused by something simple like a loose cable?
The reason I'm asking is that I'm in Sydney & have to send the laptop back to Melbourne to be fixed....if it is something that has happened in transit, there's no point sending it back to have the same thing happen again. Any ideas much appreciated.
Thanks
 

A:Thin grey vertical band on laptop screen

That could be a physical flaw in the screen, but hopefully it's just a loosened connection in the wiring involved.

It probably did happen in transit, since the repair techs would have noticed and called you if they saw it.

You could have a local tech try to check the wiring first, but you'll probably have to send it to Melbourne again. If so, use a bigger box and ship it wrapped in something big and soft like a down-filled winter coat or quilt. You might also want to insure the parcel for the round trip if your postal system or courier company offers the option.

Hi in WMP 12 when watching a video I get a small black bonder (bars) of about4 mm around all sides.
It happens in fullscreen on both 16:9 and 4:3 videos.

I have the video resolution on Windows set to 1080p @60hz and In Windows Media Center it's set to 1080p @50hz.
It does the same for 60 50 30 or 25hz videos. I play a lot of 50/25 hz videos as in Australia.

In other players (iTunes for example) they play with no border (bars).
I would use other players only but want to use Windows Media Center and that uses Windows Media Player features to play videos so I get the same border(bars).

Hopefully someone here can help.

Thanks Kevin

A:WMP 12 Black Border (Bars)

An update: I am going to use Media Center (which is just an interface for Media Player anyway) as I found a way to get videos to fill the screen properly.
I found if I play certain videos twice or 2 different ones (only works on some combinations) then the will go to there correct size.

Like I have a 1080p video of Led Zeppelin which has to be played a second time to go to the right size but my 4:3 videos of The Flintstones will not resize I play them first without using other videos to fix it first.

But I have to do it each time Media Center is closed and reopened.

I hope someone might have a clue what's going on.
I have even repair installed Windows and reset Media center back to defaults.
I have a I7 3770 8gb of ram a 128 ssd and 500gb hdd and a 7700 Series Radeon graphics

i have 2 21.5inch monitors running off of a sapphire radeon HD 5830. in xp there was a icon in the system tray thing where i changed some slider bar to get rid of the 15% black border currently showing around my screen. but now i have no idea where to find it. called the monitor manufacturer to see if it was their problem but they are saying its something with my video card. said slider bar said something along the lines of streching the screen, but i dont see any option in the ATI catalyst control center.

suggestions? or anything that needs clarified?

Try updating the drivers for your video card.

I have an IBM Thinkpad A21p
Windows 2000

When I set my screen at 1600x1200, I am fine.
When I use any other display Setting, there is a black border around the functional display. The screen shows the number of pixels and then instead of stretching to fit the screen, just puts black in the rest of the space.

You need to adjust your scanning. You need to overscan.
