you mean you want it to run stretched in full screen? or to maintain aspect ratio with black bars?

Usually, in the game, there will be a section for Screen options and then Resolution.

otherwise, you might try this:
minimize the game
then Right click on the game in taskbar
then go to Properties
look at each tab - one of the property screens should have an option to run full-screen.

I dont know if this will show up for your game, but its worth a try.

It really depends on the game you're trying to play. Some game just don't support your native resolution; however, all hope is not lost.

Seek out and find the games you want to play here and see if there's a fix: Master Games List - A - WSGFWiki

it's a bug in Catalyst.
you can try this: ATI GPU Scaling Fix for Windows 7

it helped me to get opposite effect. i wanted so my games are running with aspect ratio and not stretched. that tweak is still in effect even after reboot.

Games won't run in full screen but in front of a black screen
After playing the first "Riddick" game, I have noticed that any game I start, while it is in the full screen mode, will not be maximized. As in, the resolution doesn't stretch out so anything that isn't my native desktop's resolution isn't good enough because I get black bars or to be more precise...
