    I'm fairly certain a previous driver version had it but it won't let me downgrade and I don't have it now.

    My version of the Intel Graphics Control Panel let's me select a custom aspect ratio when I have the resolution set to 1280X720. It lets you adjust slide bars to make the display bigger and smaller in the vertical and horizontal. You can use that to get the display to show correctly.

    Change the resolution to 1280X720 and select "customized aspect ratio". Then press "apply", then adjust the customized aspect ratio bars until the image fits on the screen. Then press apply again and close out the Intel Graphics Control Panel.

    Then go to Windows Settings|Display Settings|Advanced Display Settings|Display Adapter Properties. Press the button for "list all modes". Choose the resolution that you want from that list. (I chose 1920X1080, 30Hz, interlaced.) The resolution changes but the screen size and the custom aspect ratio are maintained.

    This is kind of a pain. And if you open the Intel control panel to make any unrelated changes, it will revert to the incorrect aspect ratio. It also reverted to the wrong aspect ratio when I got the latest Windows updates pushed to me recently. But this time I wrote down how to change it back!

    Note that the "Custom Resolutions" option on the left menu is nothing but a red herring here. It will not help solve this problem. Don't mess with it.

    Holy goodness, I registered just to say thanks for this post, what an obscure way to solve an overscan issue - the option only appearing for 1280x720, man.
