After connecting a new ACER desktop (TC-895) to my existing 24" Acer monitor (G235H), the desktop screen does not fill the display. There is a 3/4 inch black strip at the left and a 1/2 inch black strip at the right. Display resolution is set to 1920 X 1080

I did not have this issue on the old Acer Windows 7 desktop. I examined the other display settings & options and did not see anything that looked like it would help.

Is there a solution for this?

Yes. I see a small speed menu with Display Settings & Personalize at the very bottom. Update - Personalize "Choose a Fit" is set to Fill.

I have tried other settings. There is little change or it gets worse.

Update: Brand new desktop. After a long chat with Acer support, I followed their instructions to update windows, delete the display driver, then restart.
Holy cow - it took all afternoon to update windows (required 3 rounds of updates to get to H20). After deleting the display driver and restarting the desktop image fills the screen completely. WooHoo!
