    Hooked up PC to Sharp Aquos TV (through HDMI), resolution too large


    When I connected my computer to my TV (again, a Sharp Aquos) and I turned on my TV, the screen resolution is too large. I thought I could just change the resolution through my main monitor, but none of them fit. Right now when I look at my TV, the toolbar is half shown, meaning only the top half. I also cannot see the time/date. However, the resolution on my monitor is fine. I already looked this up and the closest I got to finding an answer was that in the TV settings, there should be a toggle for something like overscan/pixel perfect/ 1:1. My TV is from '09, so it has nothing of the sort. And that's when I found this website, so I hope I'm going to get an answer here.

    Perhaps the graphics card controller software will allow you to adjust the size on the TV.

    I don't have two monitors so I don't know if you can individually adjust them.

    Hello Equal2, i think the problem is that the Aspect Ratio on your Tv is not set correctly.
    ( i have mine set to Just Scan on my tv, )

    Let your TV automatically scan the aspect ratio.
    @xTL Is that LG?

    I don't have any problems with the resoluution on my PS4 though. Or Xbox One. It only happens with my PC.
    And my TV doesn't have any aspect ratio settings. I'll take a picture of it when I get home, currently at high school rn.

    You can just simply set the aspect ratio to auto then set the highest resolution that you monitor can support from your computer.

    there should be a "View Mode" button on your remote that allows you to choose dot by dot ratio which is the remedy for the "overscan" that's happening
