I posted this earlier, 49 views no help. Doesn't anyone have any ideas?


Since I switched to using my tv as a monitor whenever I boot up my pc in the morning all the icons are on the left, jumbled rather than just slid over from the right where I like to have about 20 of them.

 This looks exactly like it did when I changed the resolution on my tv to fill the screen.

One thing I notice is once in awhile I get a small pop up message from  the hidden Icon area on my task bar that tells me I should be at a different resolution, the resolution that I ran my monitor at.

 I'm thinking I need to change something on my pc but don't know what or how. The hidden Icon is an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver.

Did you actually change the resolution of the TV, or did you change the zoom level and/or the aspect ratio? As far as I know, the resolution of a TV can't be changed, but maybe it can on newer TVs. What I think you should start with is to set your TV back to it's default display mode first. (resolution? - zoom - aspect ratio) Then, look up the TV's native resolution, and change your computer's display resolution to match that of the TV. Do this base setting and let us know what you get.

Does Windows detect your TV properly?
