Ok, I just got a Radeon 64mb ddr VIVO and I love it. I've been asking about what to get lately and decided on this because I also do some 2d stuff and I need the video in. The Radeon runs games SO much better than my archaic crap Riva 128ZX (ugh). But anyway, I got it installed and all my programs run fine, but I have a black bar on the left and bottom of my screen. It is like my desktop got scrunched up to the upper right (I can still see most everything, I just can't even move on the bars). I have tried different a few different drivers and the bars still remain.
If I go into the setup on the monitor I can get the desktop close to normal, but games still have the bar. Something like this happened before with my ZX, but some different drivers helped that. I don't think there are interfering old drivers, but let me know if I can double check this somehow. I also have my IRQ's if those are needed.
So, do you have any advice? My apologies if this has been covered before or it is a stupid nooby thing. Even a link to something about this would help, thanks a bunch. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all your input. Specs Below.

well, different cards will send different signals to the monitor - you might just need to recalibrate the settings for each resolution you use. Are you running the games at a different resolution than your desktop? what version drivers are you using?
