Hi BGPhilbin: Thank you very much for contacting the Intel® Graphics communities. We will do our best in order to try to fix this problem.
At this point you tried almost all the troubleshoot steps that we recommend to try to fix this issue. You mentioned you already re-install the latest graphics driver, just to make sure, on the link below you will find the version 4849, after the installation of it, please verify the resolutions available to choose the proper one:
If the problem persists after that, since you are using an HP computer, we actually recommend to install the drivers provided by the manufacturer of it and try the steps above once again:
Additionally, even though this is also a very basic suggestion, most of the monitors have an option or setting to increase or decrease the size of the display, sometimes the size of the screen gets bigger that it should, we had some cases where the issue was related to that feature.
Any further questions, please let me know.
This problem has persisted. For almost a year.
While the display will sometimes revert to fit within the HDTV, if the slightest change occurs, the display freaks out.
For example, if the television is not on the moment that the PC is turned on, then it will only display very thin white lines on a black background.
Or, if the correct input isn't chosen while the PC is booting up, it will then revert to a standard def TV ratio (4:3).
It astounds me that a PC that is perfectly capable of displaying on most any HDTV is so confounded by a simple task: fit to screen area.
What gives, Intel? Can't you do better than this?
Isn't there anyone out there who can help solve what should be the most basic premise of display? Fitting on the display?
Thank you for posting again in our Intel ® Community.
I understand that your issue persists and it might be a little frustrating.
I would like to investigate deeper your issue, so please provide me a full report of the current settings through our Intel® System Support Utility for Windows* and a Report for Intel® Graphics Drivers
Please generate both reports with all the components of your setup connected (including the Magnavox 39" 720p HDTV)
In order to work on the issue replication, please go ahead and provide us with the required information for reporting Graphics issues as specified here.

I hope to hear from you soon.

It took me three days of my own PC time to research and address the concern. The packets that you had previously provided were unable to be installed on my HP PC.
Hewlett-Packard had finally translated the data into an update that I could obtain through their website that would work on my machine.
The issue is corrected, but only with direct control of overscan correction for the 1280 x 720 resolution. This was not available with the original or updated driver.
Thank you for the response.
