Odd display when connecting a TV

So, I have an odd issue. If I connect my TV and run it at 1920x1080 (As it states it is capable of) I get odd placement of the screen, for example if I look at the desktop, icons are pushed over to half the screen, and it does this with a few resolutions. Unfortunately, my TV does not have a scaling feature so I am unable to properly tell it where the edge of the screen is. It seems in some games that run at the resolution, they do not do this. (For example, BF3. It shows everything within the boundaries) but my browser, desktop, and some other games fail to do so. What could cause this issue and how could I fix it? Or is it just a native Windows issue?

  1. You need to adjust the scaling and position in the GPU driver control program

    Just curious, how do you have the computer hooked up to your TV? Via HDMI (preferred method) or VGA/DVI?

    Also what type of graphics card do you have installed? We can lead you in the right direction if we can get this info.
  3. Sorry for the late reply. I have it via HDMI and I have it running off of a EVGA GTX 560 2GB

    It's going to be a scaling option issue like unksol said. Go into the nVidia Control Panel and there should be an option to modify these things to make it right.
