I have a Samsung LCD television model # LNS4095DX/XAA which I am trying to connect via HDMI to my Cyber Power Laptop with the following specifications:
NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M 2 GB
Intel Core i7
16 GB DDR3 Ram (in case that makes any difference)
I have just updated my drivers for Intel HD Graphics which is the tool through which I manage my Extended Desktop, but I am encountering a problem with scaling. When I output to the Extended Desktop, the edges of the screen are getting cut off. If I run it in Cloned Display mode it will cut off most of my icons on the left side of the screen and about 90% of the Start bar. The "Guide Me" help option provided with the Intel software says I need to go to Display, select Digital Television Samsung from the Select Display menu, then click on Display Scaling to adjust the scaling of the Extended Desktop. I have all those options well and good. There's just one problem: when I click on Display Scaling, I only have one option, which is Maintain Display Scaling.
At some point in the past I had this figured out and had adjusted the scaling to fit my Samsung television perfectly so that nothing was cut off. But over the weekend my wife used my laptop with an Extended Display on her Windows user account and now the scaling is messed up again, only this time I don't seem to have the option to adjust the scaling. Can someone please help me with this? I don't have a lot of experience with using Extended Display, but I want to be able to use my LCD television from time to time for gaming and media. If you need more information, just let me know and I'll be happy to provide it.
