Sony WEGA 42 - Border with PC Input

Does anyone out there use a Sony Grand WEGA 42 LCD Projection screen
with a PC feeding into the VGA (15 pin) input ?

I'm using a Sapphire X1600Pro AGP card, which seems to detect the screen
properly, and show all of the modes it supports.  And it shows a
beautiful image.  The only problem is that it leaves a 1" ring around
the entire picture,

Has anyone come across this?  I can't figure it out.  I've tried every
output resolution and I get the same ring.

Thanks,

Josh

Have you tried changing the refresh rate?

The card detects and sets 60hz without allowing another option, which
the Sony manual says is the correct setting.  It's a pretty smart video
card, it even comes up telling me the name of TV (Sony WEGA) in the ATI
config screen.

I don't know what the Sony does but the Samsung has some aspect/zoom
settings. In SD you can pillarbox, stretch, etc. In PC or DVI there are
2 choices Wide (TV) or Wide (PC). Wide PC 'underscans' and leaves the
ring around the border. This is needed when actually running
applications so you can get to the edge buttons. Check the possible
'zoom' or 'aspect'  choices on the Sony.
