Windows 7: Windows 7 RC x32 Widescreen Resolution Problem

Windows 7 RC x32 Widescreen Resolution Problem

The other day i installed Windows 7 RC x32 on my laptop with a 1680 x 1050 HD LCD Screen, off course it's widescreen. Now hen i run any 4:3 resolution, such as 1024 x 768 the image doesen't fit the hole screen, leaving one bar at each side.

This only happens hen i'm running Windows 7, i have another partition with Windows XP, and hen i run a 4:3 its goes full screen without the bars.

Alsow i didn't had my Nvidia drivers installed on that partition, i hazen't on my home so i didn't had internet, and i didn't had the drivers neigther.

I deleted that partition with WIndows 7 alredy, i would change from XP to 7 but i would need to format, and i wanted to keep my data. Alsow installing all my games (about 90 gb) on another partition with Windows 7 would be ridiculus.

I would change from xp to 7 if anyone can tell me a fix to this please.

The only way I have been able to get this to work is with reaaally, really old nVidia drivers, i.e. 169.25_forceware_winvista_32bit_english_whql.exe. Sucks!
