Non-native resolution

When I use non-native resolution I have black borders around the game.
What can I do to so that my game stretch to full screen.

I found this, but i dont have this option on my Nvidia CPL

If the monitor is a CRT conected with VGA (DSub 15pin) like the Sony CPD-G420 listed in your Specs then it is an analogue signal and all the scaling is done by the monitor itself. When at the resolution you want, adjust the monitor settings for the Horizontal & Vertical. The monitor can be adjust screen hight & width differently for each resolution.

It's DVI conections that will have GPU type scaling in the control panel.

So just press the menu on the monitor, then down to size/centre. Now adjust the picture size/strech/centre. This isn't a global setting and the monitor should remember different picture size settings for different relolutions/refresh rates.

I'm a little confused by the first picture wher it shows you dispaly as laptop display.

In device manager what is listed as you monitor under that heading? If it doesn't list the model number of the dispaly your uisng and only says PnP then you need to install the driver .inf file for your monitor/Lcd in order to have full control over your resolutions.

Native resolution
I just recently bought a brand new computer which forced me to switch from Vista to 7. It wasn't a bad change, just a bit overwhelmed by how things are set up now. The most annoying change is 7 will only give me two options when it comes to screen resolution. 1024x768 and 800x600. Both of...
