Desktop To LCD Problem

Hello

Well I just recently bought a Hp Pavilion (Desktop)
I Didn't Get a Montier Because Ive got my 42' Soniq LCD TV and a HDMI Cable,

But the Real Problem is Everything Works Well On the TV Except the Picture, the Picture is Wider then the TV, So Basically I can only see Half of the Task Bar, i can see the "Exit Button" i have to Minimze Every Single Time,
Ivé Tried Screen Resolution,

Ivé Tried 1920-1080 = No Luck Still The Same
-1280-720 = No Luck Still the Same
-720-560 = Still the Same

i Also Tried the Aspect Ratio's of the TV like 4:2 Ect But Still the Same -_-

I Really Need Some Help its So Confusing

You have to change the screen resolution in Windows,

Click the right mouse button on an empty part of your desktop and you will see this menu;



Choose "Screen Resolution" and you will get this menu;




From there you can set up your display as you would like to have it, always provided of course that the hardware ( TV-Display, Graphic Card etc) is compatible and the software ( if special drivers used etc) works.

Yes, but you did not say where you tried it, on the TV, in Windows............

Without information it is impossible to offer any sensible help. Without knowing what you are trying to do, and with what, there is no way to give you any useful advice on how to accomplish it.

Aspect ratios and various graphic card drivers are not your problem. The problem is that your TV is not showing the resolution you want to have. In order to achieve that, you need to know what your TV is capable of, and how it may be set up to achieve what you want. The windows display setups are also important.

Is this your TV?

If it is not, then tell me the model type and number of the TV you have.

Your TV has a list of specifications like this;




( Those are the specifications from the TV I just posted a link to). I need to know which TV you have so I can find the correct specifications and tell you what you have to do to set it up.

Without the specifications I can't help you.
