Have you tried lowering the resolution a notch to see if it does the same thing?
Do you have any overscan options enabled?

Lower the resolution of the laptop.

Overscan is a feature provided in some graphics card drivers that allows you to "scale" or change the size of a PC image on a TV screen (in laymans terms). However, setting this too high can sometimes cause the visual corruption youre seeing.

One last thing, make sure youre TV isnt set to stretch or zoom the image too much, that may be affecting it as well.

i have fixed the slanting problem and the image is visible by changing the aspect ratio on the tv from 16:9 to 4:3 but now the image on the tv is skinny using only about 60% of the actul screen.
