    Resolution set to 1080p on TV but displayed to small


    Hello everyone,

    I used to connect my Asus X72JR on my Flatscreen TV at 1080p, it always had a crispy sharp image.

    After replacing my harddrive and reinstalling Windows 7 (64x) the image wasn't displayed in full size of my TV anymore but smaller (black edges around image)
    When i set my TV to full screensize everything gets blurry (it just spreads the image)
    I updated to the latest graphic driver and looked at the screens resolution which was still set at 1920x1080 (recommended), everything was correct but the screen is either blurry or displayed smaller than the tv screen.

    My Asus has a Radeon Mobility HD5470 driver

    I have a second laptop, when I connect this to the TV is has a sharp image again even though the settings are exactly the same.


    Any suggestions?

    Hi,
    Tell me did you update your driver using windows updater? because windows patched that and it will always say that your driver is up to date so you better download it from websites like Free Windows Drivers Downloads from CNET Download.com

    I've had this problem before. You just need to go into the ATI Catalyst control center and adjust the underscan/overscan setting to make the image size fill your screen. And you'll probably have to do it again every time the ATI driver updates.

    The problem is as soon as I instal Calayst my screen turns black (backlight doesn't turn on anyore) and I have to use recovery to before the instalation.

    So basically i can't really solve one problem because of another.

    I would uninstall the video driver from the device manager, and install a fresh copy from the Asus webpage.

    Good advice but for god's sakes don't get it from CNET or ANY other download site other than the official AMD one, or ASUS.

    Unless you love shitware coming with your drivers
