I'm having a crazy problem and its really getting upsetting =(

I have my screen resolution set to 1920x1080, which is my screens (native) resolution.

However many programs launching at smaller resolutions show up so big they dont even fit on the screen!!

I launched a game at 1366x768 in windowed mode, while running at my native resolution and instead of showing up in a small window like it should have it showed up in a huge window that only showed a 4th of the game screen while filling the screen of my 1920x1080 resolution.

I dont know what to do to fix this.

League of legends pvp.net client also opens up with a small resolution, yet shows up larger than my 1080p resolution and is offscreen!

please help =o

do you have picture options in your tv? like :
Theater Wide
Wide
4:3
16:9
Native
Gaming
etc.?
Try changing them up if you have them, see if that helps.
I have a 40" Toshiba hooked up to my HTPC, I keep it in "Native" mode.

yea i have similar settings i have mine set to "full" which is the only option that displays the whole screen, the rest are zoom and 4:3 and stuff like that.

another forum told me to mess around with overscanning options on my gpu's control panel but i havent had any luck yet.

if you have 16:9, try powering your pc on first, then wait until you know windows is booted up completely, before you turn on your TV.

sometimes the boot-up procedure throws of the TV' when it switches from low resolution to a higher one.

Are you hooked up over HDMI?

sorry for all the fuss, i figured it out xD

Custom DPI setting of 200% lol T_T

I just lowered my resolution to 1366x768 and put the dpi back to 100% and everything works much better now.
