I have a Dell XPS M1530 running Vista Ultimate. It has an 8600M GT. I have been watching blu-ray movies using the built in BD-RE drive, and I love it. (I have a DVD rental store very close to my house which rents blu-ray movies for $3 for a week. BARGAIN!

Anyways, I would usually hook it up over a VGA cable into the back of my 42" Samsung HDTV. I then decided it was a shame to lose the quality over something so silly, and went out and invested in a HDMI cable. I just connected it, and a window pops in Vista saying blah blah blah external display and asking me how i want the 2 screens to work with each other.

Now I want to watch a movie, so I want all my graphics card's attention on the output. The TV.

But I have noticed an immediate problem. The Screen is cropped from all sides so I can only see about half the screen. I've tried all resolutions up to 1920 x 1080, and changing the P.Size from the TV, but nothing seems to work.

I then read this, in which the second poster says a driver from laptopvideo2go.com should help. Does anyone know anything about this site, and if so, which of the thousands of drivers I should use?

Thanks,
