Connecting Toshiba notebook to Samsung LCD TV - small image only

I've connected my Toshiba Satellite Notebook (A135 series) to my Samsung 550 series LCD TV. I get an image, but it uses only a small part of the screen. There are large borders left, right, top, and bottom. Is there any way to have it use more of the screen? The p-size button on the Samsung remote only changes the screen size between the small image and a somewhat wider version that is the wrong aspect ration. TIA for any help.

    I'm using Vista. Went to display settings. There are two monitors to
    choose from (the notebook screen, and the LCD TV). I selected the LCD
    TV, and there is a slide bar to select screen resolution. It's set at
    1024X768. Whenever I choose a different setting and click Apply, it
    automatically resets to 1024X768. ?????

    It's nominally a 40" TV. Manual says that is the diagonal measurement of the screen. Physical width of whole TV is 39.2"
    Resolution is 1920 X 1080.

Mu screen is really dim I can't even see it

Without further information one can only assume your LCD/LED Backlight is starting to fail. If there is no image whatsoever, your inverter or the LCD connection may have failed. A completely white screen or a scrambled screen image would point to a failed inverter only.
