I tried these settings (from Jason), and many others. What eventually worked for me was a combination of 2 switches - "shrinking" the content then realigning the top-left corner. xrandr --output HDMI2 --fb 1240x700 --transform 1,0,-20,0,1,-10,0,0,1 My TV overscans by 20 pixels on the sides and 10 pixels on the top and bottom. Yours will likely vary.

To be able to download the graphic driver from Intel, you have to add their GPG keys to your system. Ubuntu will otherwise be unable to validate that the files are correct.

AFAIK, modprobe loads only same running kernel version modules, ie from: /lib/modules/<kerne-version>/ modinfo shows the full path of the SUPPOSED module to be run by current kernel (not the one which currently running really).
