I just newly install Ubuntu 12.04, and im running an HDMI cable from my computer to my ASUS monitor. Now in Windows 7, i did not have these black bar issues running at 1080p. But now in Ubuntu, i have these black bars. I installed the ATI Catalyst Control Center, and I went to go in to fix the scaling but it is grayed out.

enter image description here

As you can see, even with the override box checked i still can not set the scaling. The monitor was set to a lower resolution to hopefully fix it but that did not work either.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Sorry for the picture being small, that is imageshacks fault. –  Josh B Jun 30 '12 at 15:03
I fixed the problem, does anyone know how to delete a question? If anyone cares, apparently when you install the Catalyst Control Center you are given two programs. One that says AMD Catalyst Control Center, and the other says AMD Catalyst Control Center (Administrative). The second one unlocks everything/ –  Josh B Jun 30 '12 at 19:02
