Asus Desktop to 40" Samsung TV - crashes looking at graphics card

I don't know the details of my desktop computer...I know it is Asus, 8GB, i7 processor, I have had it for about 18 months.

I had (2) 21" monitors hooked up to it, I decided to get rid of the duel monitors and just go with a 40" LED Samsung Smart TV.

I used a regular HDMI cable from the computer (HDMI Out) to the TV (HDMI/DVI)

Booted the computer, windows 7 screen came up then went away to a black screen, the screen on the TV said I had lost my connection then after about 2 minutes a blue screen came up with a bunch of text...something about shutting down to protect data...or something like that.

I can boot the computer in safe mode and it comes up fine.

The TV manual says optimal resolution is 1920x1080 but I don't have that option on my computer.

Does anyone have a suggestion on what could be the problem or what is going on?

Also could it be that the onboard video not be able to work with 40" LED tv?

Do I need to buy a new video card?

    I don't know the details...I will hook one of my old monitors up and see if I can find this all this info you are requesting found in one spot? Sorry I am not very compuer savvy.

    I pretty much use this computer to surf the web, check email and draw in CAD.

    I seem to remember having this problem before and somehow fixed it...but I don't rememeber what I did. I was thinkning that it is pretty simple and was hoping someone on this board had dealt with the same issue.
