Default help needed with picture size

I need help in fixing overscan to 2012 Panasonic plasma. Format modes on tv : Full, Just, H-Fill and Zoom
Can not access hd1 or hd2 size when in full mode ( grayed out ) same whether I use hdmi or dvi to hdmi adaptor to plasma.

With Nvidia GT520 under size underscan has no effect at all ,

If I use re-size, resolution is reduced as you move sliders to get picture to fit

Checked menu settings in upper model Panasonic plasmas and nothing available to adjust overscan...

Is there a program to do this and not reduce picture quality or lose resolution?

I found out that the reason I could not select HD2 size ( pixel to pixel 1:1 ) was because native resolution of panel was 1024 x 768. I returned the Panasonic TC-P42X5 and purchased TC-P50UT50 which has native 1920 x 1080. When connected computer with hdmi , I am now able to select HD2 size in Full mode.

I ordered AMD Sapphire HD7750 ultimate video card and replaced Asus Nvidia GT520 video card. Turned out this was not really necessary as it was the Panasonic panel that was the real issue. Guess the HD7750 is still a upgrade as it supports 3D and the Panasonic TC-P50UT50 is also 3D.

Thought I post this so others will have solution if they can not get pixel to pixel 1:1 mode.

Dan, thank you so much for your post. I have the Panasonic TC-P50UT50 with Nvidia GeForce 440 GT. I have the overscan issue with my computer going to the Panasonic TC-P50UT50 hdtv. Where/how do I access the "HD2 full mode"?
