That's because you have to pick a resolution in the game that matches the aspect ratio of your monitor. Or best is to set the game(s) to use the monitor's native resolution.

You go to the game's settings and select a 4:3 aspect ratio.

He's got the same monitor that I have on my notebook. It's a 16:9 ratio monitor. I have the same issue playing Quake 4, but that is because it doesn't offer my native 1366 x 768 resolution. The blackbars are on the sides in my game.
