    Overscan on second monitor

    Hello all,

    For the past two weeks I've been dealing with some overscan on my second monitor, and it's quite frustrating. Everything's too wide for my screen. I use a laptop and a duplicated second monitor, but only on the latter I'm experiencing this issue.

    It first occurred after messing around with the resolution of a game I was playing. After restarting the game I noticed that, although my desktop and everything else (e.g. Chrome) was messed up, except for the game. Naturally, I tried to revert the settings to whatever they were before, but the only thing that happened was that now the game is messed up too. Not that I care too much about that though, I mostly care about everything else (like my desktop), but it's odd nonetheless.

    So far, I've tried adjusting my screen resolution and the scaling of text and apps in Windows, but to no avail. I did read about people having this overscan issue on TV's, but my second monitor is a PC monitor (Iiyama B2283HS-b1) and not a TV. It's connected through a VGA-cable, if that makes any difference.

    Does anybody have any clue as to how to fix this?

    Hi Sivaram,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    1. Since when are you facing this issue?
    This issue might be happening because of the faulty drivers. That’s the reason you are getting intermittent connection on external monitor.

    However, you may try the below suggested steps.

    Step 1: Try connecting on a different monitor and check if the issue still persists.

    Step 2: Try using a different VGA cable to connect with external monitor and check the status of the issue.

    Step 3: Update display driver adapters

    You may refer the article
    Update drivers in Windows 10
    and check the status of the issue.

    Step 4: Check for an updated Video driver on the

    Acer drivers and Manuals page
    .

    For more information you may also refer

    Hope it helps.

    Overscan on second monitor

    It should be in the Intel HD Graphics Control Panel. I don't have an external monitor connected at the moment so you options might be different. It's either under scaling under the General Settings tab, or the advanced tab under the General Settings, or the underscan setting under the custom resolution tab.
