what graphics card does your laptop have?

if it is an amd, go to your catalyst control center, and adjust the "overscan" setting under the "flat tv's panel" option (i guess its called flat tvs', don't know it by hard now, just watch out for the overscan setting)

Also check the tvs aspect ratio. "Just scan" works on my lg.

My Graphics card is "Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000"

Try the following setting, it should fix your problem:
General Settings > Scaling > Maintain Display Scaling > Apply.
