The screen is like trimmed from the sides and I'm playing on half the screen,I downloaded the lateset video drivers (for Windows 7 of course) and checked the resolution settings, there's nothing wrong there.
What can I do to play games on full screen?
yo must do these:
1.change your resolution to 800*600
2.right click on desktop and select graphics option and panel fit and scale full screen
3.change back your resolution
it's ok
good luck
