    Hey,
    I bought a Sharp 30" LCD TV (Model: LC-30HV4U) and I'm having problems using it as a monitor. I have a video card (gforce fx 5200) that supports DVI, so I'm using that instead of a standard SVGA cable. As it is...the screen displays on the TV, and it looks magnificent, except the edges of the desktop are about a half inch too long on every side. I have the resolution set to 1280 x 768 which is the what the TV supports...yet it still cuts off the edges.

    So my question is thus: Does this TV have monitor drivers I can install? It's recognizing the tv as a standard vga monitor, 60mhz...which sucks. How do I make my computer recognize the TV as the bad ass it is? And...how do I make the desktop fit the screen?

    Do you have the latest drivers installed for your Nvidia card? Go out and download them, then give it a shot. Had them same problems with my Dell W1700 @ 1280x768 on my old Dell with a TNT2 card. Once I upgraded the drivers to the latest, it worked perfectly.
