Windows 7: Display Issue for Games

Display Issue for Games

After trying a few games (Warcraft 3, CnC Generals), I see that 7 takes into account widescreen resolutions for games that don't support them. It will black out the pixels it doesn't use so it's still fullscreen and doesn't stretch the picture out. But after running the graphics config for Dawn of War it won't even allow me to pick a widescreen resolution (as it did on xp). Is there any fix for this, or should I just hope the developers fix it?

It sounds more like a driver issue, than 7 itself. Have you tried using your cards drivers and not the 7 supplied ones?
