With some elderly CRT monitors it just ain't possible on the actual monitor controls.
But - sometimes adjusting the refresh rate will give a picture of different dimensions, of which some rates may be able to fill the whole screen. Unfortuately with these elderly monitors, they can't accept high refresh rates - you may be limited to 72Hz or 75Hz only.
If it's a modern monitor, it might simply be faulty.
