I have a HDTV, I connect my laptop to my receiver via HDMI, and then HDMI to that TV. Nothing I have tried so far enables everything to fit in the display. The XP bar is cropped out, and without moving stuff around a few other things are partially cropped out. When I switch back to my laptop screen and then back to the TV later on, I have to move stuff around again because the settings don't adhere. I tried tweaking the receiver, the game settings, the video card settings, and even added a few curse words.

Has anybody out there solved a similar problem of their own?
