The TV is full HD. It's a 42" LCD TV with 2 HDMI ports, etc. It plays most things in 1080p.
GPU= graphics processing unit. Your video card. Being that its a laptop it's most likely integrated. If its amd/ati they are notorious for overscan problems although it can happen on nvidia or intel also.

Anyway make sure you have the latest drivers, then go to your graphics settings. You should have an option to adjust for overscan. Also should give you the option to output to monitor or HDTV.

Also some tv's have different setting modes such as auto,HDTV and pc. So check your tv settings also.
