Windows 7: Windows Media Player not full screen

12 Jul 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional
Windows Media Player not full screen

OS=Windows 7 Pro, Windows Media Player=12.0.7601.17514

When I run and view certain *.mpg and *.mp4 file through Windows Media Player Ver12, the video itself appears in the middle of the screen - a large black border appears to the left and to the right of the screen. If I click the view full screen, the two black borders are still visible albeit not as wide as before.

The problem started a few weeks ago - before that, whenever I played the above noted files, the video took up the whole screen.

Amy suggestions???
