I am getting a Random sized screen (usually cropped) when loading Games or other applications. The Screen size usually changes down from it's native 1920-1080 to 800-600 or 640-500. This happens in the startup screen as well, but in normal (Windows) operation the screen is fine. I have tried everything I know to fix this, including re-installing the drivers, and contacting Support From Microsoft & Sony (makers of the Tv I'm using as a monitor)

My Latest correspondence from Sony regarding this issue & my dissapointment that they have no drivers for this model TV is that the problem lays with the AMD. Which may be the case because for some reason the autodetect states the TV is a Sony CRT, which isn't the case..

Please HELP!!!!! I am at witts end over this..

I think this is the problem and that's why it's seen as a CRT. It's probably badly implemented in the TV as nobody uses it. Try HDMI instead, or if the TV happens to have such connection, DVI is the best.

You'll also have nicer colors and better image quality.
