DV5Z w/HDMI not filling the whole screen

I have a DV5Z with Blu ray player installed. When I connect the Dv5z to my Panasonice 42 in plasma 720P with the HDMI cable, the whole screen is not being used in the full aspect ratio. There is a 1 inch border around the top, bottom, left and right.  My DV5Z has ATI HD 3200 graphics card and I just don't understand where I need to adjust it so that it works ok. I previously had a Dv5T with Intel 4500 and it worked fine,(actually it filled a bit too much about 1/4" of the picture was off the screen) but the DV5z doesn't and I don't want to watch blu ray movies with 1 inch border around the screen. Where are the settings for me to adjust so that I can watch the movies in full view?

 

I've adjusted the display settings and it didnt work. what could be the problem that I need to adjust?

I've also adjusted the aspect on the TV and H-fill isn't anywhere close and zoom isn't close and 4;3 is not what I want to use. 

 

Any and all help is appreciated.

Try using the ATI Catalyst software.  You should see an option for HDTV in the list on the left in the Advanced view.  It has some decent explanations on how to use it to configure your TV.  I don't have my dv5z in front of me right now so I can't be more specific.  If you need more detail let me know, I had this exact same issue and got it working.
