also all other games and videos don't fit the full screen and there is always a black areas on right and left

vista driver made this and the new intel driver for 7 rc did so (8.15.10.1825)

Not big problem at all. Dell uses the intel 945gm and in fact they even have drivers for win 7. you can go here Download Software, Drivers and Utilities Filters and get the correct driver and install it. If it refuses to install you made need to get the driver in a zip file and point device drvier to where you save it. Dont worry if you have to we will explain how to later

I also have a dell and its no problem.

Hope this helps and welccome to seven forums
