Just purchased new laptop and when i connect it to my tv the image of the desktop is a small square within my tv screen and i cannot seem to get it to fill the screen properly using the screen resolution settings. Tried everything.

Oh thank you so much for your help. I just bought it today and its an Acer Aspire 8gb 1TB. It's strange because the old crappy Toshiba laptop that I have been using was fine and the desktop filled the screen on the tv but for some reason whatever i try with the new laptop settings i cannot get it to work. I just have a small picture of the desktop in the middle of my 50 inch tv screen which is no good ! I just googled GPU and it mentions Radeon which i don't have on this laptop.
