When I connect my x220t to my 47" HDTV through hdmi with hdmi to display port adapter, the picture comes up, but it is not the right proportions. I try to fix this by going to screen resolution or graphics properties, but as soon as I change a setting in either, my x220t either shows the blue screen, or just no picture at all and has to restart. I connected to my 25" hd monitor through hdmi and hdmi to display port adapter so those are not the problem. Help please!

Do you have specs on the native resolution for your 47" and 25" TVs? Are they both 16:10 or 16:9 or is the 25" 16:9 and the 47" 16:10 perhaps?
Just wondering if we are winding up with a non-native resolution since you note the distorted aspect ratio.
What resolutions are you selecting on the laptop?

Apparently it was the adapter. I recently bought a new adapter, this time a cable with a male display port and a male hdmi port and it works like a charm. The old one that was a male display port to female hdmi port does not work. That is the solution. Thank you for your help!
