Look if it is a tv setting. Should be a button that switches to 4:3, full, just, and zoom.
Dude. I just built a computer from scratch with zero knowledge whatsoever on the subject... do you honestly think I am going to register here and ask a question and it ends up being a button on the remote?
Not to be rude. But I am not my grandfather. Plus I told you, I have tried all the settings including those in the monitor configuration menu.  I have been on these forums longer than you even. Just noticed that.
This is also a Windows related problem and specifically I am using hdmi atm. My tv is in full mode so I see the entire signal. There are black borders on the edges. I want the whole desktop.
