Hey, I've got a NV53 series Gateway laptop brand new and I am trying to fix the aspect ratio options but I can't. Does anyone know where I can find it? I've looked everywhere and brought it to best buy and they couldn't find it either so I need help!!

Setting the Video Aspect Ratio

  1. Based on the navigation system contained in the ATI Catalyst™ Control Center window, do one of the following:
    • Navigation menu—On the Graphics menu, click Avivo™ Video.
    • Navigation tree—From the tree in the Graphics Settings tab, click Avivo™ Video.
  2. Click Theater Mode.
  3. Under Theater Mode Settings select Match the source video to maintain the aspect ratio of original video.
    • Optionally, select Scale to full screen to have the source video fill the display area.

Try setting CCC to advanced mode instead of basic mode.

It seems like your system doesn't recognize your second display. Can you see anything in it? And remember, it needs to be set in "Clone" mode.
