Linux Monitor Problem

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hi, first let me say that I am new to Linux and I don't have much experience with a lot of the inner workings of it. I prefer to run Ubuntu since it is the easiest to understand. I do know some of the basic commands and such. Now that I have my knowledge out of the way, on to the problem.

I have a 40" JVC LED TV as my monitor and it works fine in windows. I installed Linux via wubi and when I put the resolution at 1920 x 1080 it is off the edge of the screen. That's pretty much the problem I am having. Thanks in advance for any reply's.

So is it off center, or is it centered but doesn't occupy the full screen?
And how are you connecting the PC to your TV?

Please do a real install and not that buggy crap that's lingered around.

What video card and video drivers are you using?

Well I was just going to try it out is why I installed Wubi. Also to answer the other post. its just off the sides of the screen so I can really see the sidebar or the top. If I make it a different resolution, I can see it but its just too big. I am using an AMD Radeon HD 6950.

Got nothing to add besides a USB live boot is much better then wubi, wubi in itself would most likely cause problems. Does your TV have any settings for zoom or over scan, sounds like its over scanning.

Well I dont see any settings for over scanning. I want a full install of Linux but I want to make sure I can work out all the kinks before I dive that far into it. Also the TV is hooked up via HDMI

I would say a zoom setting on the tv is likely the issue here, or an incorrectly set up X.org file. You never answered what video drivers you're using tough.

When Linux gets booted up I have tried both the drivers that are listed in the popup. I think they are both proprietary. Also the TV works fine at that res in windows so I wouldn't think that it would be due to a zoom feature.

Is this using wubi or a live disk or an install?
