Windows 7: Connecting to HDTV via HDMI

Connecting to HDTV via HDMI


I have been having this problem for a while.. but have been ignoring it. Hopefully I can get this fixed.

When I connect my laptop to the HDTV via HDMI it automatically connects to a crappy resolution and the edges are cut off.

How can I fix this?

Hi ebarn,

Right-click the Desktop and select Screen Resolution. Adjust the dropdown menu to fit your HDTV screen.

HDTV overscan will produce this also. Should be in TVs menu options.
