Question about Televison & Video
I can't seem to get the image to fit the screen properly with any of the resolutions. I've connected the laptop and the tv with an hdmi cable.

I got the chat , but some how it got disconnected.
But i would like to help you in this aspect.
HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface, and supports transmission of both audio and video in high fidelity.
First make sure these things,
Both your computer and your TV will need to support HDMI interface.
It's quite a recent thing in PC graphics cards, so you may have to resort to S-Video, DVI or VGA for the video, plus a 3.5mm stereo cable (or the optical TOSLINK equivalent) for the sound.
Let know your comments and i will follow up with the suggestions.
Thanx for using fixya,

This happens to almost every laptop I know. Here are several solutions:
1. You need to manually enable video on tv by pressing two buttons on your laptop keyboard. The first is "Fn" (at the left bottom). The second depends on your laptop manufacturer. Look at the function keys. F1....F12 for the LCD/CRT or the corresponding sign. Press and hold Fn and press second button. Sometimes you need to press second button several times. This means you need to cycle through all available options to enable Laptop's screen and TV screen at the same time (clone).
2. Intel Extreme Graphics video cards sometimes doesn't support a procedure described above. You need to find intel video card options manager running at the sys-tray (right bottom of your screen near the clock). Right click on it. Select Graphic Options -> Output to -> Laptop + ... clone (or something similar)
Note that not all video cards are capable of showing the movie on media player at the same time. You need to choose Laptop or TV

Check your resolution output from laptop it maybe set to high for the TV to handle, also go to the Display Properties and ensure that the second monitor out is enable. Good luck!!

Make sure that you set your laptop to external display by using the proper F key, located on top of the keyboard. It looks as though there are two computer monitors on it. My Gateway is F4 for example. Press the function key and the proper F key simultaneously. There are a few choices, so you may have to push it more than once. I hope this helps and good luck!
Please remember to vote Thanks.

Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your
screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They also appear
smaller, so more items fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer
items fit on the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very
low resolutions, however, images might have jagged edges.
For example, 640 × 480 is a lower screen resolution,
and 1600 × 1200 is a higher one. CRT monitors generally display a
resolution of 800 × 600 or 1024 × 768. LCD monitors can better support
the higher resolutions.
Whether you can increase your screen resolution depends on the size and
capability of your monitor and the type of video card you have.
Text and images are sharper and smaller at high screen resolutions
Text is larger and easier to read at low screen resolutions, but images are blocky and fewer items fit on the screen
Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.
Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.
