    Description:
     A fix for the infamous GPU Scaling issue with ATI Catalyst(tm) and Windows 7. See below for
     more details.
    
    Requirements:
     - An x86/x64 CPU.
     - A DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort monitor. CRT will not work.
     - Microsoft(R) Windows 7. Both x86 and x64 should be supported. Tested on x64.

       http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0856EACB-4362-4B0D-8EDD-AAB15C5E04F5
    
    Note:
     - If you have not checked "Enable GPU Scaling" in Catalyst Control Center, you must do so first.
     - This program has only been tested on one machine (AMD Turion Ultra X2 laptop with HD 3200 IGP),
       so please don't hesitate to give positive constructive feedback!
    
    Usage:
     - Run the program.
     - Select the desired GPU Scaling mode.
     - Run your favorite 3D application (such as a game, etc).
     - Enjoy. Please everyone submit tickets to the Catalyst crew feedback system!
     - Please donate if you like this program and/or my other programs!
    If you need any more information or help, click the "Help" button in the program. If that
    is not helpful enough, feel free to post on the forums!

    So...what does this actually do? Restore the GPU scaling options removed at native resolution? The screenie is not loading for me.

    That's basically the idea, yes.

    It loads fine for me. In case it doesn't, I've included it in the ZIP file.

    I run my 4870 with a DVI -> HDMI adapter running into a Hannspree HF259H.

    Usually I have to increase the scaling option in CCC to 0% in order to avoid getting black bars around the edges of the screen. Well today I did a reformat and installed CCC and voila, it worked out of the box. I don't know why ATI removed scaling options nor how they fixed the problem I was having in the first place.

    ATIs word on this issue is that you need to lower the resolution of your display to below native, select your prefered scaling option then return to the native resolution once more. The setting will still be greyed out once you are running native again however you *should* have the proper scaling ( I like playing a lot of older 4:3 games at 1600x1200 myself ) Regards, nice quick fix though Agent. Hopefully AMD can straighten this crap out though. Their current work around is somewhat awkward.
