I use a 22in monitor. max resolution is 1680x1050.

i have a radeon 5850

i just bought a new tv. 25inch. 1920x1080 resolution sticker on the side of the tv. so im guessing thats the max resolution for the tv.

when i use my tv as a monitor for my computer. the screen seems to be too large for my tv. is there any way around this? thank you.

i can also set my tv to use a smaller resolution but that leaves a black border around my monitor.

so just wondering if anybody has any ideas on how to fit my whole desktop on my tv. thank you.

Are you actually changing the resolution to 1920x1080 when you switch over the the TV?

And what video connection type are you using to connect from your PC to the TV?
