Before moving any further, could you please clarify what do you refer as having the TV connected to the system with a jackstick and a vga-cable? Are you referring to a type of adapter or converter?
I might not understand your question but will try with this answer:
I have connected my Samsung TV to my laptop Toshiba Satellite A200-1UV
There is no HDMI plug in the Toshiba laptop so I have used a VGA cable to transfer picture to the TV and a jackstick to transfer sound to the TV
I can set the TV to the format 16:9 but non of the resolutions available is compatible with this format
The situation now is that I can see rented movies etc which I transfer from my laptop to my TV but about 5% of the picture on the left cannot be seen.
I think it is because I use a resolution called 1600x1200 which divided gives a format called 4:3 which doesnt fill out my Samsung TV-screen at all because it has the format 16:9
In the controlpanel where I can adjust the screensettings I can read the the card or the driver is supported to 1280 x 800 (60 Hz) - so could it might be that the chip doesnt support the resolution 1920 x 1080 Full HD?
I am just an amateur so please ask me for more if you need it
The graphics controller drivers will support just about any video modes (within reason) that the Monitor's EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) claims to support, as well as modes defined within the Video BIOS Table (VBT), plus a basic set of static modes (mostly for monitors with no EDID): 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, and 1600x1200.
First, we suggest installing the latest monitor drivers. Then visit your motherboard manufacturer or system vendor's web page and download the latest BIOS update. Installing this will update your VBIOS as well and should facilitate interaction between the graphics controller hardware and the latest drivers. Also, make sure that you have the latest monitor drivers installed (*.inf drivers). After this is done, please reinstall the latest drivers for your graphics controller.
Intel makes available generic versions of the Intel® graphics drivers. However, Intel always recommends that you check with your computer manufacturer and use the latest Intel graphics driver provided by your computer manufacturer. Your computer manufacturer may have altered the features, incorporated customizations, or made other changes in the drivers they provide for your computer. To avoid any potential installation incompatibilities on your computer, Intel recommends that you first check with your computer manufacturer and use the driver provided by your computer manufacturer.
If you have already tried the latest driver from your computer manufacturer and would like to try instead the generic Intel graphics driver, you may download the latest generic driver from the Intel Download Center:
If during the installation of the Intel generic drivers you get this message: "driver not validated on this computer", go here for further instructions:
