I got this new shiny mid tower computer case. I took all my parts from my old case and put them in this new one. I plug it in and turn it on and my screen is now cut off on all sides and I can't get it back. I used to have 2 columns of desktop icons, now I got 1 and 1/4 meaning I can only see part of the other icons. I even did screen calibration. The only thing new is the case and the steelseries gaming keyboard. The case came with some new wires as well but they are all plugged in correctly. I still plug in with my HDMI cable too but everything else is the exact same and I did not have this issue before getting this new tower.

My new case http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811144076

I also want to point out that I have no sound.

Please answer all the following questions.

Are these the old parts you have put in the new case? > http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ah2y
What is the current video card you are using, brand and model?
What was the PSU you were using before buying the new case, brand and model?
Have you changed the PSU that was supplied with the new case?

Those are the parts, yes.
The video card is a ATI RadeonHD 5770.
The PSU is a Corsair 650TX Enthusiast series.
I did not change to the PSU that the case came with.

However!!! I did figure out what my issues was. I was plugging my HDMI cable into my motherboards HDMI slot instead of the Gfx card HDMI slot, so all is good now.

Thanks Mykl and sorry for the post lol!
