Check the game configuration menu. It will either be a separate program in the same folder or an option in the main menu (or both). There should be settings there where you can adjust graphics and audio quality. Of course, it could be that the game can only utilise a 4:3 aspect ratio in which case you'll have to accept this limitation. Alternatively, set your screen to that resolution.

I know what your talking about and I have noticed it myself although I don't have to worry about having anything other then my native resolution as my computer it pretty powerful.

I think that it may be feature they have made on purpose because when you have a lower then native resolution on a LCD the picture quality looks horible and in a way that has been overcome by scaling the image to the set resolution and by doing so you don't loose picture quality but the veiwing area is reduced.

So there's nothing i can do?I don't care about graphics quality,i want to play games streched on full screen!

I start to dislike Windows Seven:first I can't access network pc which use XP SP2 and now games don't go streched on fullscreen!

have you tried all of the sugestions posted? It might help if you filled in your system specs so we would know a little bit about your computer. You could also tell us exactly what the problem is.
