I'm having a frustrating time attempting to get my Acer 5740g to display on my external TV/monitor via HDMI when using windows 7 home premium. Basically the problem im having is that although the picture is displayed on the external monitor it is only displayed in a small rectangle in the middle of the screen, with thick black areas filling up the rest of the space.
Annoyingly, when using Ubuntu 10.04 it works perfectly, displaying at the correct resolution and occupying the whole screen so I know my hardware is physically capable (Both PC and monitor).
Hardware wise, I'm using an Acer 5740g laptop with Intel GMA HD graphics.
The TV/Monitor is an LG 26LC46.
