Having problems with your Dell PC Desktops ?

Resolution Problem!! I am having this screen resolution problem after reformatting... I have a HDTV(1080p) hooked up to my computer as secondary/primary monitor, but now I can't fit the picture to screen on my HDTV, I can only fit to screen with 1152 by 648, if I pick 1280 by 1024 the picture would only show in the middle of the screen. And for my computer monitor if I pick any other resolution besides 1280 by 1024 the picture would like very weird and distorted, it was never like this before...
