    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...

    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?
