I am currently using an HP 635 Notebook PC. It has AMD Radeon 6310 HD Graphics card with 4GB RAM and a 1.3 GHz processor. I am using an HDMI cord to hook it up to my 22" Sansui LCD TV. I was previously using VGA cables and did not have a problem until I switched to HDMI. The display on the TV is all fuzzy and pixelated. With the VGA cables, I did not have the problem. I tried messing with the settings in AMD Vision Engine Control Center but nothing helped. If there is any special tasks I need to do to fix this, any help will be appreciated. The TV is set to 1920x1080 resolution at the moment and that is the recommended setting. It was cutting things off around the edges, but I managed to get that fixed with the scaling. My only problem is the quality right now, I tried messing around in the My Digital Flat-Panels regarding the HDTV Support settings. I tried every setting possible in there and nothing helped.

I did that already. That just fixed the cutting off around the edges that it was doing, which I have already been able to fix. The resolution and quality is the problem I am having.

Is it a Sansui HDLCDVD220? The native resolution for this model is 1680 x 1050. Select this resolution and you will get a better picture.

Is there a place to set a custom resolution? The only thing I have close to 1680x1050 resoltuion is 1600x900. And it's not an HDLCDDVD220, It's just an HD LCD. I looked on the back. It says its an Sansui SLED2280C

That model has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080. No idea, why the picture is so bad with that setting.

Yeah, it's weird. I just plugged in my VGA cables and it's on the same exact settings that I had for HDMI and the VGA is soo much better. I am only running 1 HDMI from my HDMI1 on the TV to my laptop. Is there something else I need?

You can try an other cable. I have seen cheap or very long hdmi cables causing this.

I just hooked up to my Xbox 360 and connected it to the same TV with no problem there. It has to be something with the PC settings.
