CJM1682,

The overscan would be for the PC input, in most cases. Since you're using HDMI, the picture on the scree is displayed exactly as it is sent (with a pixel/pixel representation).

However, if there is an overscan, it would be at the source, meaning in the settings of the PC or graphics card. Try to update your graphics drivers or turn overscan in the PC down to 0%.

The PC setting is grayed out because you're using the HDMI port, and not the 15-pin D-SUB.

CJM1682,

See if Nvidia has a program on the computer - in some cases, you can do an F1 for a help file.

Unfortunately, I can't assist with that - but you may also inquire to Nvidia directly.
