Picture size on TV monitor

I connected my sons laptop to a 26" LCD TV via a HDMI cable and this works fine except for the fact that the picture is quite small and I cannot get it to expand using the TV remote. I seem to remember seeing something in one of the forums that it is possible to alter the picutre size in Windows XP Home - is this true?

You will have to adjust the screen resolution on the computer for the display to fill the monitor screen

Right click on the desktop-properties-setting and change the screen resolution to the correct size
