Monitor "repair"

Hi, this software might not fit my needs, but I wanted to try at the recommendation of a friend.
One of my monitors doesn't display correctly no matter what setting I try, so I was hopeful that I would be able to set the specific resolution and padding necessary to display correctly, however nothing seems to change when I click apply.
Any assistance or explanation of what's going on would be great.

You can try setting it up like the attached screenshot, but it won't lift the taskbar off the bottom of the monitor. The taskbar needs to be on a monitor edge.

It sounds like you're trying to fix an overscan problem with the monitor. Have you already checked the NVIDIA Control Panel to see if overscan is enabled there? Also check the monitor's settings itself in the menu. Some monitors/TVs have options for the "picture size" or "scaling," and there will be options like 16:9, 1:1, Just Scan, etc. What you want is Just Scan or 1:1, or something along those lines.

Hope that helps!

I looked further into solutions (outside of the software) after posting this while waiting for a response, and I don't know when NVIDIA added this (or maybe I'm just blind), but they added a "resize" feature which, while doesn't do exactly what I wanted to do, it did fix the issues I was having at the time. I doubt this is possible, but what I want to do is set the monitor behavior to the native 1980x1080 but slightly scale it down to the specific size that shows up on screen.
I did see the overscan, underscan, and I'll likely take a look at that next.
Thanks for all your help regardless.
