So I have ASUS laptop A455LF i5-5200u with Intel HD Graphics 5500 and Nvidia GT930M running latest update of Windows 10 and latest update of every graphic driver connected to LG 22MN42A monitor + tv via HDMI. It got full HD resolution at 1920x1080 but the quality is so bad, text has white shadow, some text looks blurry, color looks odd. But when I try to connect via VGA cable, everything became so much better with sharp text and natural color. One problem is, no matter which display resolution I choose, each of it will get oversized in the monitor, just reduced in quality when I choose smaller resolution. When I see resolution detail of my LG monitor+tv on its website, it says "PC/Analog 1366x768" and "Video/HDMI 1920x1080". Is there any meaning of this? Please help me everyone, thank you.
Check the manual for a control called "Overscan" & disable it.
That will fix the 'zoomed' aspect you are seeing, but nothing is really going to fix the fact that you're trying to make a low-end TV with a basic 480i picture quality into a computer monitor.
It attempts to show you 1920x1080 over HDMI by simply stretching the picture to fit - might be kind of OK for a television picture, but awful for a computer monitor.
Its nominal display size [actual pixel count] is only 1366x768, which is not "Full HD", so your 'best picture' is going to be at that resolution.
The resolution of the display is determined by the screen.
PC/Analog 1366x768: When the PC or Analog signal is input, the maximum resolution that the host outputs to the monitor is 1366x768.
Video/HDMI 1920x1080: When the Video or HDMI signal is input, the maximum resolution that the host outputs to the monitor is 1920x1080.
Try the following method:
- It is recommended to use an HDMI cable.
- Try changing the screen mode to the extended mode so that we can set the resolution of the two screens separately.
- Adjust the resolution of the TV to 1920*1080.
