Have you tried a mismatch on the resolution?  I can not run it matched for the same reasons.

Are you using the same HDMI input you usually use? Some TVs with several HDMI inputs only designate one of them as PC input. That input will match the screen exactly, the other inputs will be expecting a video input and are likely to overscan, a common TV technique, and overscanning moves the edges of the image off the screen.

Alternatively, there may be a menu option in the TV to set overscan mode, which has become activated.

Mia96,

 

          Would you mind posting what setting it is that you had to tweak?  The details of the steps are not so important, because that will vary between manufacturers, but knowing the setting itself that worked for you, on yours, can often guide people later when looking for similar on theirs.
