So, my 26" monitor recently broke down, and I replaced with a 32" Vizio HDTV. I connect my computer, which has a DVI hookup, to the monitor, which has an HDMI hookup, via a liitle converter. The problem I'm having is this: things are too big. By that I mean that objects go off-screen. Now, I can fix this for my desktop and such by resizing with the Nvidia control panel. However, the BIOS and some (but not all) games simply act as if there is more room than there really is.

Is there anything I can do, or do I have to cope?

Yeah, I've done that, and it does wok...kinda. The widescreen resolutions go off some. And there are a couple games that don't have selectable resolutions, only full screen or windowed. Full screen makes the image go off screen.

And that doesn't do much good for things that load before the OS.

The refresh rate won't change a thing. All that does is change how many times the screen refreshes it self per second (or some time frame).
