positioning to fit your computer screen. You just have to live with the imperfection, that's all. However, changing resolution+refresh rate do change screen positioning, so try and find a happy medium. Good luck.
Hi. I'm hoping that I can adequately explain my issue, but that may be problematic as I'm rather dull when it comes to these things, as you will see.
I have a Samsung 32" LCD TV that I love, with a VGA port, two HDMI ports, the component connectors, and one for S video. I have a Dell Inspiron desktop PC, with a Radeon graphics card that has a VGA port (used for PC monitor), an S video port, and one DVI port. I have tried every conceivable? setting, variation of cable combos-except HDMI since I have no converter, fiddled with EDID whatever that is, on the computer (Vista Ultimate) and the Radeon card in order to get a proper image on the tv. I can't recall the exact resolution but it's around 1100x800 when I can get the image centered on both the monitor, and the TV-both are widescreen, BTW. The image on the tv is passable, but on the computer it's horrible-margins around the perimeter, and too large and fuzzy text, etc..
When I use a higher resolution of 1360x768 (I can go as high as 1600x900 on the PC but "out of range" on the tv) everything is great on both with one gigantic problem. I've set it all to clone, and not extend, but on the tv it simply shows my desktop background with nothing else. In order to see a window, desktop icons, etc. I have to condense any window, drag it to the very right hand ege of my PC, and then it's on the TV. So much is off screen, and to the left, on the TV. I have to leave just a bit of the window visible on the PC so I can later drag it back. Needless to say, this is far too crazy too fiddle with each time I want to watch a tv show.
Now, after all of that does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Do I need the DVI to HDMI converter, a new PCI card, a second PCI card, etc.? By the way the TV is in another room, 25' away. When playing with all of this I use the VGA to VGA using a DVI to VGA converter on the Radeon card.
Does any of this make any sense, lol? Help, please if someone has any thoughts. If not, I understand!! Thanks
