HDTV is messed up

I recently hooked up my Computer to My tv, and it worked fine for the first day. but when i fired up the computer the next day, it cut off the far sides to past the back button, and halfway through the close button on the sides, and most of the way down the window's title bar on the top, and malfway up the task bar on the bottom. i have tried all different aspect ratios on the TV, and all resolution options. the computer is hooked up through HDMI, and an NVidia graphics card, the exact one, i don't know. Much thanks

It's an under/overscan issue.

In the nvidia control panel:

Use the resize button to then adjust the screen.

Although I've noticed that it 'forgets' the setting every time the screen is disabled/re-enabled which is a PITA.

ok, so i downloaded the driver, and started the setup, but it doesn't recognize the graphics card. this appears to be the only driver for the graphics card (which i discovered to be a GeForce GTX 590)

If it's a GTX 590, try the 270.51 drivers:

GeForce Forceware 270.51 released

Make sure you select the right version for your OS (x32 or x64)
