How to resize screen? (Laptop to HDTV w/HDMI)
I've seen an NVIDIA laptop use a "Resize Screen" program that works majestically. Unfortunately, I do not have a laptop with an NVIDIA graphics card (It's a Radeon, I think...in a Sony VIAO). Is there a program out there that will resize a screen to fit the TV? As you might have already guessed, when I use an HDMI cable from Laptop to HDTV, the screen just doesn't fit properly! Annoying...

Well there is a chance that your computer does not have the right resolution for your tv... but...

See if you can't make that work for you.

The picture shows up too large for the TV screen and everything is cut off. The NVIDIA program allows you to slide a slider which, in turn, makes your screen shrink or expand horizontally and vertically. The link provided in the first response is just going through "properties" and changing the resolution, all of which provides a similar problem. Again, is there ANY program out there that does what's described above for ANY graphics card?

Not that I know of.

For some reason I am getting the feeling your computer doesn't support the native resolution of our tv. Most computer and video sources can talk back and forth and determine the correct size.

You could try this but I have never used it before and cannot vouch for its correctness
