Game fullscreen problem!

Hi, first of all, my name is Hugo, and im here to get some help. I Have Windows 7, and to play games in fullscreen have to set to maximum resolution, but my laptop does not have requirements for it, i need to put at least 1024x768 to run the game i play, nice. Because if i set to 1024, it apears black bars in both sides, and i dont like to play like that, so any help is apreciated. My thanks, Hugo.
