Hello,

I am using a HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC. I am trying to hook up my 50" Samsung TV as an external display. However when I hot plug the TV via HDMI the edges get cut off. The same happens if I plug in the HDMI cable prior to booting the system. I have tried adjusting the resolution on the TV and in the System Settings-->Displays. There is only one resolution in the display settings of my laptop. Any ideas on how to correct this? I have searched and searched forums and Google with no luck
