    Cannot get resolution right on tv monitor connected to pc


    I have temporarily connected a 22 inch LCD tv monitor( until i get a new one) to pc via HDMI lead but i cannot get resolution set right.The recoommended native makes the taskbar disappear of screen and the desktop icons are barely visible on left side of screen.
    I have tried various resolution settings but all are no good apart from one which makes the desktop look like like a laptop screen.

    I have reset Windows 10 and updated Intel Graphic Card drivers to the latest but still resolution cannot be set correctly for monitor and used a VGA lead aswell.

    Is it because you need a proper pc monitor to have correct resolution ?

    It could just be either that the TV isn't communicating the available resolutions back to the card or that the card just can't display a screen in the resolution that the TV has available to fill the screen.

    Does the TV have an 'adaptive' resolution under settings? , mine does and adjusts itself to fit the signal being fed from the PC.
