Windows 7: Windows slightly too large for my tv

Windows slightly too large for my tv

Just connected a new 1920X1080 TV to my PC and it's working great EXCEPT that Windows 7 is a little too large for the TV and stuff is getting cut off. Is there some feature to let me squeeze the system to fit the display on the TV?

Resolution on the TV and 24" monitor are both set to duplicate 1920X1080. The monitor displays fine. If I go to 1280X1024, everything fits perfectly, but I want to use the recommended larger resolution.

Do you have a scaling, or scanning option for your tv? Check your video card settings, it should have a scaling option.

That item is not on there. Should I be contacting EVGA? Here's a copy of my screenshot for my EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 560:

You have to access it through the Nvidia control panel like the screen shot above, not through the Windows controls. To get to it right click on the desktop, and select it from the menu.

Yes, that's exactly how I made the screenshot above.

Most TVs have their view mode option. In my Sharp TV set, when I duplicate screens with both 1080p. I set my TVs view mode to "Dot by Dot" meaning that there is no overscan and that all of the display is pixel per pixel. So if I output a 720p resolution to the TV in "Dot by Dot" mode, only 1280 x 720 pixels will be active and there would be letterbox horizontally and vertically. Try finding that view mode on your TV.

Found the problem, I was using Windows resolution on the desktop, not the Nvidia program. So it turns out the problem can't be fixed on a cloned display. Sizing is not allowed on a cloned display.

Duplicate screen depends on the resolution of the primary display in my case.
