Computer won't utilize all monitor space

I finally got my new computer built (picture related, it's the sexy, sexy inside), and I bought 2 new monitors to go with it- one BenQ 18" from Goodwill and one Dell ST2421L from Best Buy.

I have the rig set up, all drivers installed, but there's still about 1.5" black space around the display portion of the Dell monitor. It's just neutral space that I can't run my mouse over.

Any ideas?

yes adjust your video card settings also use the auto button option on the dell it will correct it self

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Solution was actually through my graphics card settings.

Now, my audio doesn't work. Running through HDMI, but the built-in speakers don't work. I've got nothing coming out of them.

cant help there i would only use a dedicated sound card and speakers

But maybe unmute the sound? or turn the volume up on the monitor? check settings

All my audio settings are jacked up, and I have no other way of putting audio through my monitor. I might just get a 3.5mm male-male cable.

I believe HDMI is a digital signal? and most speakers use an analog speaker.

unless u can click on the sound icon near the clock for your audio and there might be settings to configure
