When I start up Windows in 1920x1080 (1080p) portions of the screen are cut off and I can't view them on my DLP HDTV.  How do I fix this?

This is called overscan mode and is a common mode for DLP televisions set by the HDTV manufacturer. Some televisions have a built in mode called "Reduce" which allows you to view the entire Windows desktop, but this mode is not compatible with stereoscopic 3D gaming.

 

However, NVIDIA has a Resize HDTV function available in the NVIDIA control panel which allows users to view the entire Windows desktop and is compatible with 3D stereoscopic gaming. To enable it, follow these instructions:

The options on this Resize HDTV Desktop page appear if you have set the NVIDIA Control Panel View menu to Standard.

You can resize the desktop appearing on your HDTV screen if your desktop is extending beyond the viewable display area or the desktop or image is not filling the entire display area.

1.From the NVIDIA Control Panel navigation tree pane, under Video & Television, click Resize HDTV desktop to open the associated page.

2.Click the Resize Desktop button.

Use the slider to increase or decrease the size of your desktop/picture until you get the desired result.
