Game on half screen ?

Hi I recently bought a HP Laptop i3 and 1 gb Radeon graphic card.

But when i'm trying to play games it is only being playing in half screen i.e left and right corners are blanks.

I've updated my graphic drivers and also playing on high performance mode.

Can any one help ?? Thanks

Hi, are you facing the issue with just some games or all the games. Which all games have the issue?

First, I would request you to please update the system specs so that we can help you properly.

I have heard about FIFA 13. But, EA never released cricket 10. They stopped after cricket 2007.

Anyways, as you mentioned that you have updated the drivers for your card. Did you remove the old drivers and then installed the new drivers or installed on top of them.

If you did later, then I would suggest to download latest driver for your card (that you will also update in the system specs ), uninstall old drivers, use Driver Sweeper to clean all the bits of old driver. And then do a fresh install of new drivers for your card.

Try to increase the Resolution to Max of the game.

Keep us posted.

I've installed the new drivers without deleting the old ones. Ok. I will try the solution you've provided... Many Thanks

After you installed the drivers (correctly ), you may also want to get into the game options and have your resolution changed to the native resolution of your laptop... sometimes this can cause issues.

Being said that, make sure you are using the correct (or native) resolution on your laptop to begin with
