After connecting my laptop to my TV via my VGA output, my 1280x800 resolution has a problem. It looks like this:

I can drag and drop things into the black area and my mouse can go back there. It's just not displaying.

It still works fine under 1024x768, but 4:3 doesn't fit my screen properly.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.
