Toshiba Satellite 1405-S151 to TV

Threaded View
I want to connect my Toshiba Satellite 1405-S151 to my Vizio L32 HDTV.

It looks like I have only a single composite connection on the laptop.
I've hooked that into one of the video inputs on the TV.  Set the TV to
the correct input and told the laptop to switch to TV.

I get a picture of my desktop.  The only problem is it is much larger
than the display area of the TV and I have to scroll.  This is rather
annoying since I'd like to play a DVD and not scroll.

I have tried going into the Desktop properties and changing the screen
resolution but nothing seems to help.  I'm pretty sure i must be doing
something wrong.  Can some one help?

Thanks in advance.

This is often quite normal.  It is because the effective resolution of the
TV is much less than the desktop on your PC.  It is even a problem on some
dual head graphics systems.

If you play your DVDs using a half decent software player, it should
correctly fit the picture to your TV.  Having said that, it all comes down
to the graphics card and its driver.
