First of all, i see you didn't bother to fill in your computer specs so how do you expect people to help you solve your problems when we do not know which components you have.

Second, don't tell me you have a highr res monitor and you still insist on playing at such a low resoulution just because you heard that supposedly all the l33t kids play in that resolution?

Third, you should know that unless you actually have a really slow and old graphics card, when playing CSS at low resolutions, the game will rely more heavily on the CPU ( and may I remind you that CSS is still not optimised for multicore CPUs, so even though people have 2 or 4 core processors, the game only uses 1 core ) then on the graphics card. So if you have a good graphics card, playing in higher resolutions may actually give you better fps, not to mention that it will save your eyesight from looking at ugly pixelated images. LCD screens have a native resoultion, and the image is best at that resolution ( sharp,crisp and clear ) , if you lower the resolution from this native one, the image quality and sharpness will suffer the lower the resolution especially if it is stretched across the whole screen, the image becomes blurry.

This is where the black bars come into play.
Rather than stretching the low res image across the whole screen, it shows the image in its native resolution by covering the rest of the screen with black bars, thus everything still stays perfectly sharp and clear. This is practically the same as playing the game at that lower resolution but in windowed mode, only in windowed mode you also see the rest of windows interface around the game window, whereas with black bars you only see the game.

Counterstrike Source problem.
I have no idea whats going on but everytime I launch CSS the screen resolution seems to mess up and there are no Buttons to click on the menu, just the CSS photo. Is this a known issue with an easy fix? Thanks. Took a screenshot of it, unedited. http://i35.tinypic.com/ei5lxy.png
