HDTV desktop edges get cut off

I have started  using the new small Pavilion dm1-3025dx.  A pleasure.  I connected it via the HDMI cable to my Samsung 1080p HDTV and noticed that all 4 edges of the screen were cut off.

This is particularly troubling since I planned on using this laptop to stream video and some of the players have their controls on the bottom and they are invisible as they got cut off...


I tried all the resolutions the advanced Catalyst screen will let me pick, all produce about the same cut off.

Any advice?

Your TV's zoom mode may be set to Overscan or similar. Try changing it to "1:1", "Just Scan", or whatever the no-zoom setting on your TV is called.
