What kind of graphics card do you have? (Radeon 9800 pro, Nvidia 7800 GTX etc.)

It sounds as if your missing drivers for your graphics card, and that windows is running the resolution, which is poor settings.

Also, is this a new problem? Or is this the first time that you've hooked up to this lcd tv?

Sorry for all the questions, but more information would be help us help you :thumbsup: :flowers:

Does it support higher resolutions? 32bit color is as good as it gets.
If you haven't done it yet, check the LCD TV's documentation. :thumbsup:
If you don't have the manual, post the make and model LCD TV in addition to what Steve has said.

Ok Here is what you do. find out what kind of video card you have and write it down for reference if needed later.

Then right click on My Computer and left Click on Properties, we are going to Device Manager and down to display adapter and open the display adaptor up this is the name of the video driver in your computer it should be something like nVidia or some name like this, not vga adapter.

Well anyway high lite the name under display adapter and remove it from the system.

click ok and answer ok to any questions about wanting to get rid of it. We want to get rid of it.

exit out and reboot the computer.

When the computer reboots Windows should find the video card and install all of the drivers for it and you will be able to reset your screen res to what you wish.

If this does not work you will have to go to the manufacturers web site for new drivers.

Download Everest Home Edition Version 1.51 (the last freeware version of Everest that has the software module included) from
http://www.oldversion.com
(you will find Everest under the utilities section)

Install it and open it and it will tell you about all the hardware and software (including license numbers) that you have on your computer.

Have it print a report to keep for future reference.
