I'm trying to install Elementary one a spare computer that I'm going to give to my nephew - I don't have a monitor but the computer has an HDMI input so I plug it into my television and try install it, for some reason the install screen just blows up my resolution, normally I can see the entire install screen but when I use elementary I only see the top 25% of my screen blown up huge. I've tried two different USB pen drives - downloaded the ISO two different times, and it still happens has anyone seen this occur - any solutions?
I had that problem too. I solved it that way:
/boot/open configuration file and uncomment
disable_overscan=1 (if this parameter is 0 then set it to 1).
Below you have
overscan_bottom. Changing values of these parameters you can adjust your display to TV.
After setting everything, save and close document (you need to be in sudo mode) and restart your computer.
Now you can see if system is displayed properly. If not then try changing values for left, right, top and bottom parameters. :)
well here is a solution you might try,get a hdmi adapter and convert the hdmi out on your pc to a VGA signal then select VGA input on the tv and everything should be fine
