Windows 7: New W7 user experiencing resolution problems

All windows updates now installed. No change. Still searching everywhere in regards to a true 16:9 ratio with no joy. I can live with the current resolution - albeit small text and some pages centralised - it's just that online gaming may well be a no-no as one quarter of my screen is redundant (leaving what remains squished inwards) whilst trying to play my favourite (and only) online game. There are other online games I'm really interested in playing so may have to revert back to XP. Shame. Thankyou anyway for your time and wisdom. Peace y'all

Try this little tool and it's not scaling.
Download: System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB947821) [May 2012] - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details
It will let you know Whether Windows 7 will play nicely with your computer components.
Filling in ((My System Specs)) completely would be a nice gesture.
If we know what kind of computer we are working with better advice can be given.

Yes. Aspect ratio was the default setting - I've only just changed it to full-screen and did all the widdling and testing inbetween. Did I miss something in aspect ratio mode?

As for the gesture of filling in my system specs - I don't know all the names/numbers/models of all my various system parts. Like I say - I'm kinda green with tech. I've a 500GB HDD and I was planning to swap my 4 x 1GB ramsticks with 4 x 2GB ramsticks and start studying computers more and maybe take a web design course so I needed a bigger whack of memory. A screenshot of my system info follows - I apologise for my lack of tech knowledge and precision...
