    Hi....

    My PC Specs....
    Intel Core 2 Quad q6600 2.4 GHz
    Intel G33 MOBO
    2GB Ram DDR2
    Nvidia GeForce 9600GT 512Mb
    LG E2260V 22inches monitor.


    Everything was fine... I started using HDMI cable... It was Great... But now suddenly Windows sizing issue appeared...
    Every icon, start menu, task bar,Browsing pages everything are zoomed and atleast half of it are out of desktop...
    For eg... I can only see half of icons size...
    Can't see start menu...only able to see small portion of its head...
    Chrome browser's address bar is visible and not anything above...

    I have the latest drivers... Also when I first connected using HDMI cable I did not have any problems... It started after about 12-15 hrs later??

    PLZ help.. It is awful to see my desktop....

    Open up the Nvidia control panel, should be an option for HDMI scaling.

    Fiddle with the settings til it looks nice : ]:toast:

    So I resized my desktop using scaling....
    Now my current Resolution is 1842X1042p
    Since my GPU & DISPLAY Both supports 1920X1080p shouldn't it give proper output with native resolution..

    I had a few issues using HDMI before, scaling issues mostly. Now using DVI and never any issue at all. I'm not sure what your issue is, but you might as well do a full driver uninstall/reinstall, can't hurt.

    Thats funny, I ran in to this same issue with my AMD card... but as everyone else said, play with the scaling settings and it should sort its self out. It may also help to provide a screen shot of your computer at 1920 x 1080p and show us your scaling settings control panel so we may be able to tell you exactly what to set... but anyways. Good luck :D

    Why on earth is there a poll in this thread that's completely unrelated? :confused:
