Resolution Stretch fit screen issue.

1280x768 is my resolution usually on my laptop and it stretches to fit the whole screen no black border on either side but all of the sudden i was playing a game then i exited the game and now i have black borders on either side usually with a LCD monitor you hit the autocfg button and it just stretches it to refresh is there any possible way to fix this issue?

ok this is what happened 1366x768 on my laptop is the largest res that fits the screen but i also could use 1280x768 and it would fit the screen when i ran this game wolfenstein with minimizer i can no longer get a full screen out of a game without using 1366x768 and that's the only resolution that works in any game that fits the screens without missing black around the edges.

Solution: Use 1366 x 768 resolution.
Didnt you just say that you had a monitor? Or did I read it wrong?

So you want the image to be stretched and misshapen?
In other words a circle becomes an oval.

then change the games resolution... generally in Settings > Graphics/Video > Resolution (click drop down arrow) > 1366 x 78 or <insert screen resolution>.
