Windows 7 Black Border/Frame Around Screen

I installed a new PC for someone at work. It was originally using DVI but his monitor connection was HDMI.

It put a strange black border around the screen. In times gone by (CRT days), one would simply expand the screen to fit!

Anyway, to fix it I went to Catalyst Control Center (this seems to happen a lot with ATI cards), flat panel properties and changed the scanning to 0% as by default there is what is "underscan" by up to 15%.

Just modify the slider and you are good to go and no more black border/frame around the screen.
