Are you using UltraMon for the mirroring? UltraMon will always keep the correct aspect ratio, meaning you'll get black bars on the mirror monitor if the two monitors don't use the same aspect ratio.

Do you only use one monitor at a time? If yes, I would recommend disabling the other monitor instead of using mirroring, you could do this quickly via UltraMon display profiles.

What you could do is mirror only the center portion of the TV, by unchecking the 'shrink/stretch mirror image' options, but if you want to mirror the whole screen there's no way around the black bars as UltraMon will always preserve the correct aspect ratio.

What resolutions are you using for the two TVs?

the correct resolution for my 19' tv is 1440x900 and for my 32' 1920x1080.its strange because when I use only my 32' tv without ultramon I can get it in fullscreen .and when I had xp I didnt have any problem for mirroring the two tv's to resolution 1920x1080. windows 7 suck in some maybe the only solution is to just use only my 32' tv I think.Thanks for the answears!

Is the 19" the primary monitor, and you mirror it to the 32" monitor? This would result in black bars on the left and right on the 32" monitor.

With the 32" monitor set as primary, you would get the full screen on that monitor, and black bars at the top and bottom on the 19" monitor when using mirroring.
