Question

Radeon 6770M HDMI Output

by xfile102 / January 16, 2012 4:09 PM PST

I have a brand new HP Pavilion DV7 Beats Audio Edition with a Radeon HD6770M Video Card. When I hook my Laptop up to my Samsung P2770HD Display, the picture is grainy. I changed it to 1920x1080, and it is still fuzzy, and part of the screen gets cut off. My problem is, I used to have an Old Asus EEEpc Netbook with HDMI, and 1080p output was crystal clear and crisp on this TV/Monitor, and it was gorgeous. Now I cant get a machine I paid 3x as much for to even display correctly. What gives? What might I be doing wrong?

Laptop: HP Pavilion DV7 w/ Radeon HD 6770M Video Card

Display: Samsung SyncMaster P2770HD

Output: HDMI

Notes: I have tried 3 differing qualities of HDMI Cable, from cheap, to the $80 Overpriced Monster Cable in my Home Theater.

with a duo core processor and i connect it to A Samsung Plasme 58" Tv with no problem. I use VLC and I change the aspect ratio to 16:9 to get a full screen. Im not sure what is causing the fuzzy screen.

I have a quad core connected to both a Vizio 42" LCD and also my Samsung SyncMaster P2770HD, and NEITHER display correctly at 1080p. The screen is cut off on bottom and sides and is still fuzzy. I use VLC all the time, and since most of my media are HD .mkv's, MP4's or AVI's and never need to adjust my aspect ratio. Video plays gorgeously, all you have to do is double cick the VLC screen to go fullscreen. When I saw fuzzy screen, I simply mean that icons and text are off scale and not crisp like they should be.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
