  1. Are you trying to add the tv as a second display? If so try changing the resolution.

    What kind of awm cable are you using? Is it HDMI or VGA?
    Anyway, go to display setting & set the resolution to that of your TV ( 1920x1080 if full HD or 1366x768 if HD ).

    I was having the same problem with my L750 - the following worked for me:

    Control panel > display > connect to a projector > projector only.

    The big black border appears if you have 'duplicate' selected (which seems to be the default setting).

    I hope this helps.
  4. I had to go to control panel and change the battery/power setting to do nothing when the laptop lid is closed, then once the laptop has begun to boot up, clode the top and the TV becomes the only monitor. I have tried every resolution setting available and disfferent DPI (font) sizes. The besy I could do is set the resolution to 1600X900 and the DPI to 200. I am not yet pleased with the results buts its okay for now.
  5. its not a resolution problem. I had a Windows 8 32b installed and it worked perfectly, full screen on laptop and full screen on TV, both identical. Now I upgraded to Win 8 64 and now I cannot share screen on full screen. It switches only to full screen on TV when I turn off the laptops own screen. I think the OP question was about that.
