I hook up my new tv(sharp lc42d65u, full hd 1080, max res 1920x1080) to my computer(with video card nvidia geforce 7300gt, 128mb, updated driver) with vga cable, and can't set 1920x1080 resolution. I can's find this option in default resolutions, and if I add my customer resolution, I got the desktop out of the screen. What should I do?

I don't know much about that particular TV, but it might be set up to only accept 1080p signals via HDMI and not VGA.


If it will accept a 1080p signal through HDMI (BD Player), you'll have found the problem.

I believe some of the older Sharp 32" 1080p TVs don't accept 1920x1080 but only 1360x768 over the VGA connection.


I would suggest you get a DVI to HDMI cable, You should be able to set your PC to 1920x1080 resolution.

Responded to you in the other thread but it wasn't as detailed as this post of yours. You need HDMI to DVI or HDMI to HDMI cable, depending if your computer has a HDMI port. Monoprice is a good place to shop for cables, very cheap and affordable, will have all you need.

Hi,


I hooked up my LC42D65U to the computer through a DVI/HDMI cable and 1920x1080 are displayed... but the resolution seems bigger than the screen (i.e. there's stuff on my desktop that is not displayed, because on the edges, both up/down and left/right).


Has anyone had this issue?


Is there a solution?


Thanks
