Hi I've been trying to configure my laptop ( to look the nicest it can on my entertainment center TV (

Im using the HDMI port in the back of my laptop to connect to the TV.

Any help would be appreciated.

1920x1280 seems not to work, I used the nvidea settings to make a custom resolution which does fine in the middle then just goes to s--- the further it moves out. Up close text in the corners look like you're watching a 3D movie without the glasses on, from afar the further it gets from the center it gets fuzzier, with the distance there seems to be no middle ground.

ExpectIng a laptops video card to perform well on an 82" TV would be equivalent to dropping a 1962 VW Beetle engine into a Ferrari and expecting it to go 250mph. You've got a very high end TV with a video card that can't handle a resolution that high.

Below is a link to the manual and resolution excerpts from it. It would appear to me that the best resolution would be 1920x1080 @24Hz, 30Hz, 60Hz.

HDMI – Digital PC Compatibility
640x480, 898x480, 800x600, 1064x600, 1024x768,
1280x720, 1365,768, 1280x1024@ 60Hz.

1920x1080 @24Hz, 30Hz, 60Hz.

The TV is a projection type which initially may require fine adjustments either through the available settings or by factory technicians. I also think you may be trying to use zoom to compensate for the wrong resolution. The TV has a 16:9 native format. Using anything other than that requires stretching or zooming.

Below is a link to the specs for your laptop. The laptop is capable of 1920x1080 HD, so that is what you should be using.

Below are links to the specs for your GPU and to download the correct drivers.
