Laptop to TV Problems
Running into a major problem here. Don't know how prevalent it is. I've searched everywhere and have found nothing. Wondering if any of you guys/gals could help.
I'm trying to get my laptop (Toshiba L355-S7905; Specs*) to display on my TV (Panasonic VIERA TC-P50G25). I have it running through a SVGA cable to the PC Input on my AVR (Onkyo TX-SR608), which is connected to my TV via HDMI 1.3. I have it setup for my desktop to only display on the TV (Not Extend or Duplicate.). It connects fine and show up on the screen but it won't fit to the screen. It has big bars on both sides no matter what I do. I look at both the resolution in the Windows display settings and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Control Panel and they are both set to 1920x1080. My Onkyo is also set to output 1080p to my TV. I can change the video setting to "Full" mode and it almost fits (A couple black columns on the sides), but it stretches out the picture.
I don't know what to do, I've tried everything. I'm really not wanting to spend more money on a VGA to HDMI Converter Box. To be honest at this point I'd be happy even I could even get it to fill the screen at 720p, as most of the stuff I want to watch (Anime, Movies, and Live Action TV files) are at 720p anyway.
*Typed some of the specs out here for those who don't feel like going to the link:
Intel® Celeron® Processor 585
Genuine Windows Vista® Home Basic (SP1, 32-bit)
3GB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz SDRAM
Mobile Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M
128MB-1342MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory
WXGA+ with TruBrite® Technology 1440x900
CCCP Codec Pack (H.264/AVC Filter Off, VSFilter Off)
Sorry for the long post. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Hi, I've noticed that certain TVs will not display 1920x1080 as a PC input to disallow unlicensed content at 1080p. Have you tried plugging the laptop video out directly into the TV to see the maximum supported resolution?
