    Need help with my laptop connected to my HDTV (HDMI Cable)


    Hey guys, I'm actually new here, so I am not sure if this is in the right forum page, but I need help. I have had a problem with my HDTV and laptop for a few months and finally decided to start a thread for help. The problem is that the HDTV is blurry and fuzzy when connected to my laptop via HDMI. However, I realize this is an overscanning issue, because in the AMD Catalyst Control Center, whenever I set the scaling for overscanning to 0%, the fuzzy text and screen is fixed, but the edges around the screen like the taskbar are cutoff the edge of the screen. I do not think my TV has an option for "Just Scan", but maybe you guys can find something I can't. Here is the manual:

    Also, I am running Windows 8.1 with an AMD Radeon HD 7520G graphics card.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    Not sure I can help but I have the same thing. I have a cheap TV and I think it has more to do with that. I play videos is all and not an issue there, just desktop is expanded past screen.

    My TV is only 720p.

    I'd love to see if someone has a fix.

    What happens when you set your desktop resolution to match the native resolution of the TV?

    Thanks for replying, do you mean the native res of the TV? I have it set to its native, which is 1920x1080.

    It still has the edges cut off when scaling on AMD CCC is set to 0%, which is the scaling I want it to be at.
