Are they on the desktop, but just not visible (aka: off the side of the screen)? If not, then it's probably easier to recreate them than to try and find where they went.
Second, the resolution is set for 1280x720. How can I set a custom resolution of 1366x768? First tried 720p output from the video card, now have it set for 1080i. Don't know if I can tell a difference yet...
As someone just pointed out to me a few posts back, check the manual (page 54) for a grid of what resolutions are supported over each medium (component, hdmi, and pc (vga)). When going over HDMI, you can push 720p, 1080i, and 1080p, and the resolution is fixed at a max of 1280x720. The only way to get to 1366x768 is to use the VGA connection, and personally, I am having a world of problems with that...
720p and 1080i are very close in picture quality. Most people just pick one and stick with it. I'm not going to try to tell you which one because it becomes a personal preference as one has benefits over the other.
