  1. I have just got a new Toshiba laptop and I want to connect it to my Philips Ambilight TV for watching movies.

    I can get a picture and sound no problem, except that it doesn't fill the TV screen. Any ideas as to how I can fix this?

    My previous laptop died but all I did was connect it to the TV via the HDMI cable and I got a full TV picture.

  2. Have you tried hitting F11?
  3. The image fits the Laptop screen fine, just not the TV Screen. F11 doesn't help. Thanks for the suggestion though.
  4. check the settings on the laptop. You mayfind you hvae to play around in the second screen settings to fill the screen.
  5. Try:
    Control Panel
    Hardware and Sound
    Display - Connect to an external display.
