Just bougth a shuttle sg33g5 with Intel G33 chipset and i cant find any program to fix the overscan.. please do something about it!
I recently purchased a Asus motherboard with an integratedIntel Graphics chip. Iam using a Vizio 43 inch 1080P monitor. After reading this post and installing DTD calculator, I am a bit reluctant to try any experimenting for fear ofcausing some damage to my system. I am currently running 1024x768 @60...here is the output from my file:

Do you have any suggestions, or should I wait for the official fix from Intel. I noticed it's been awhile ...is the any update on this?
I'm confused... is your problem overscan, as the thread title suggests, or something else (can't get 1080p to work, and that's why you're running at 1024x768)?
It's exceedingly unlikely you'll "damage" your system by creating new video modes for it. Some very old CRT devices were susceptible to damage by sending signals with the wrong timings, but nowadays with various flat panel displays you just end up with an "Out of Sync" or "Out of Range" message in the worst case.
What "official fix" from Intel are you hoping for?
Thanks for the reply. I think my situation is overscan, as I cannot get any other listed resolution to fit -- 1024 x 768 is the only resolution which doesn't not cut off the start menu and other desktop icons. Although there is considerable screen real estate to the left and right. The available resolutions start at 800 x 600, with the highest being 1920 x 1080.
It seems I was reading a post that there was going to be a software patch from Intel at some point. Also, is TV Wizard no longer available for Windows Vista? I did also try to install it, and the version did not install.
If DTD calculator is the best option, I'll revisitit and see if I can get the correct timing. I'm a bit of a novice and do not have strong knowledge on resolution settings.
Please advise what would be the best option...thanks!
As far as I know TV Wizard should still be there. Not sure it's supported on G33, but there doesn't seem to be a lot of documentation about it. DTDCalculator takes most of the work out of getting the timings right, since it does everything graphically. Just follow the instructions and you should be fine.
