Hello to everyone!
I have my computer system connected by HDMI cable to my flat-screen TV.
Everything was working fine until my computer and TV/display abruptly crashed due to a momentary power outage (and failure of my UPS). (...Probably a battery needing replacement in the UPS...there were no lightning strikes.)
After rebooting my system, I received notice that my graphics card software had been reset to its default settings.
I know I did some tweaking of my graphics settings, but I do not remember all of the software settings I had prior to the reset to defaults.
The problem is, while I can use my graphics card scaling to reduce the size of my desktop to fill but not overshoot the size of my TV/display, my video games are displaying an image that is too large to fit the size of my TV/display...even though, as I've said, I was not having this problem until my graphics card software reset itself to its default settings.
I have researched online what to do, without finding a solution. I have tried various settings using the graphics card software, but nothing I have tried has worked.
I will be Very grateful to anyone who can tell me how I can once again get my video games to display full-screen, at 1080p, as was the case before the reset to default settings.
Thank you for your time and any help you can give me.
