    Regardless of whether it's my E-mail or a web site, the entire picture bleeds over the top, the left and the right borders. So I have to guess to click on anything I want to see or switch to. This suddenly happened in the past few days. How can I shrink the picture enough to get all of it on my screen?

    I already have the highest resolution and the smaller text...I should mention the screen on my pc fits 100% inside the space, but I've attached an HD cable to a HDTV and this is where, suddenly, it's bleeding on three sides...

    TVs usually have an option to change the screen aspect ratio and it might not be detected automatically. Try different settings on the TV and see if that helps...

    I had this same issue and never did get it sorted out. I learned to live with the TV image being a tad too large to fit on the TV screen. I did have HDMI connection.
