I doubt the pdf viewer is a problem, but try the following which I think
does what you want. There may be more elegant solutions. A few comments:

1  I had to remove the margins and reset the textwidth to be the
paperwidth. This needs to be done inside a group so they won't be reset
for the rest of your document, hence the frame is surrounded by curly

2  I put your picture in a centered column. This seems to work better
with beamer, and helps get it all centred on the slide (I assumed you
wanted it centred).

3  I put the image in a framed box only so you can be sure to see where
it is.





\setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number]
\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{} 


\oddsidemargin -1in
\textwidth \paperwidth
