The topic explains it pretty well:
I'm using windows xp pro with service pack 2. My computer is hooked up to my tv so I can watch media through it. The problem is that windows resizes itself poorly for my tv and I can't seem to find any software options for resizing. I tried looking through the menus on my tv (a toshiba from around 1998) but I found no options to resize.

Normally I could just press a few buttons on the monitor, but I'm not sure what to do with a tv.

I have tried googling for 3rd party software (video card is an nvidia geforce2 MX 400) but I couldnt manage to find anything relevant.

If anyone can help me with this I'd be quite appreciative!

Hi There,

You might take a look at this site http://www.mlin.net/misc.shtml . Mike Lin has this little app. called "WindowSizer" that is worth a look.

I am not sure if it is appropriate for what you need it for, but I do know that it works on 21" monitors.
It actually does the opposite of what you are asking, by setting the initial size and allowing you to resize to a lower resolution. it's a very handy Web Master tool.

I'm just not sure if it can be applied to T.V.'s or not. Maybe it will get you pointed in the right direction.

Like any program, make sure you read all the info.

Hope This Helps,

When I'm right, I'm right....
And when I'm wrong, I could have been right....
So I'm still right, cause I could have been wrong.
