Did you set the driver to 60hz in Win 7 control panel?

Is there a specific driver that comes with your tv?

You need to load the 'digital' driver NOT the 'analogue' one to use with HDMI/DVI

Is your HDMI lead certified 1.3(b/c) compatable?

When maker/manufacturer makes HDMI lead they have to have it tested so that it passes certain tests.
This is then written on the packaging when you buy the lead.

If it's not "Certified" your lead might not support the resolution you want eg 1080p!
Examples
HDMI 1.3 a/b/c
>>> HDMI 1.3c <<< (buy this one!)
Like these >>> http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_...1.3c&x=15&y=14

HDMI 1.4 is the newest specification for 7.1 online/wireless bluray units.

If you don't have a driver for your TV you will have to use the default Windows 7 one.
Set it to "HDTV" also
"1080p" in Win7 and your graphic card software!

LOL - did you find out if your Hdmi lead can run @ 1080p resolution?

Try it with a friends HD1080p setup or go back to your tv shop and ask them to test the hdmi lead - like I told you before, Hdmi leads are NOT all the same specification!!

Take your pc and lead around to a friend and plug it in to their HD tv. if it works you haven't set up your tv correctly or it is faulty.

Which exact model Samsung 37" TV do you have - I found about 4 different ones!

Some run @ 100hz, some @ 60hz!

Even more important to have correct HDMI 1.3c/1.4 lead (@ 100hz!)
