screen resolution problems
When I connect my laptop to my t.v to play doom it ends up looking like this: [IMG]http://i325.photobucket.com/albums/k379/gclinton89/Screenshot3_zpsd39fe1d5.png[/img]

I can't seem to get it to fit the ratio of my t.v I got it working on big picture briefly but it reverted back to this.

any ideas on how to fix this?

Its most likely using your laptops default resolution so it uses that on your TV but doesn't expand it kinda hit or miss sometimes try fiddleing with your resolution options may solve the issue otherwise there maybe an issue with your cableing

Try changing the res is the system settings of the game, or try adjusting the laptop's res to the tvs. You might also have to change the aspect ratio.

I had brief succes with changing the res on my t.v but then just went back to the same problem I currently have. I don't get this :/

What size tv, what tv, what specs of the laptop? I mean if you are going to change the game resolution then you have to do so manually under the system settings of the game itself...as well as the aspect ratio.

And how do I go about that?
It's a 32' samsung series 5, and i'm using a surface pro ( I know lol at me).

1.7 Ghz Intel Core i5 processor
Intel HD4000 graphics card
And 4 gig of ram

I'll try the t.v settings tonight and see if it makes a difference

It might not be able to scale any higher then...it could be a steam issue too.
