Unfortunately, there isn't a lot you can do with your current setup.

You could try using an HDMI cable if both computer and television can handle that. Otherwise, I'd suggest getting an actual computer monitor.

Use auto adjust on the TV to resize the screen.

That's true. Most modern TVs automatically adjust the screen based on what it detects at the input. I think this only works for digital inputs though.

I continued to restart and press enter then delete these are the keys that Acer has designated to get to the BIOS screen.

I was able to get to the BIOS page I wanted to look at he sys. preformance

so I'm thinking ther must be a certain number of times the enter and delete key must be pressed to get to differnt pages of the BIOS. next time I'll count the # of press's or do you Guy's allready know the # of press's?

weird thing is when I first got the PC I was able to access the first page of BIOS then arrow over to the desired page.

Thanks Guy's for advice
