Cut off screen borders with a new tv

Asked by Niels Haver on 2012-09-13

Hi. I have Ubuntu 12.4 without problems. I changed my tv and the borders of my screen are cut off. It doesn't fit automatically. Reducing resolution doesn't work. Can I adjust it manually? How can I do that?

Can you give the make and model of the system?
Can you give the video card used?

We need basic details like this....

Hi, I'm taking up that you have a desktop system and a LCD, most of them have an autoconfiguring button

Hi I have a Nvidia 9400GT graphics card, an Intel DP55WB motherboard and a LG 42" LED tv connected by a HDMI cable. On Windows7 is running the current NVIDIA driver (where I can manually fit in the screen). On Ubuntu the NVIDIA drivers are from (?). On settings in Ubuntu selecting screens give no changes.

On my remote control the button ratio allowed me to scan my screen (it was set on 16:9). This fit my screen with tree clicks.
