Hi Everyone...new here and not a computer expert...know my way around them a bit...but sometimes challenged..lol

I
[FONT=&quot] recently purchased an Aspire AXC-603-EW14 Compact Desktop with Intel J1900 Quad Core Processor and Windows 8 to use on my TV for Netflix/Youtube/Etc.

I had an older Acer computer with Windows XP before which worked fine (just a little slow).

Getting used to Windows 8 is sucking...but I'm sure will improve with time. My problem is that I cannot get the right resolution to fit my television screen. I have a 50" Sanyo using the HDMI port on my computer. I have tried going into display settings and when using the recommended settings...it's just not right...too big...icons are off screen and can't see the tool bar at the bottom.

Any suggestions?

whats the default resolution of the TV ?
Often its mentioned in the handbook

it maybe 720 pixels in height or 1080

your resolution maybe much higher than that

whats the exact model of the TV
does it have an input for PC - often theres a VGA port

The typical resolution of a 16:9 hd television is 1920x1080, so in the display properties, select the tv screen and then use the slider to select the matching resolution; another way would be to select the tv screen and then use the 'Detect' button. You may still need to use the TV remote to make small tweaks to make it look just right.

Off subject, but I advise you to upgrade (it's free) to 8.1.
