Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and Home Premium x64

I would check and see how Bootcamp/Win7 sees the Monitors. If I recall correctly, Bootcamp just emulates hardware, so it may not be passing the correct information back to Win7 to allow for proper identification. The other alternative is to load up the hardware profiles of the monitor directly within boot camp and not let it use Plug and Play monitor definition.

Resolution issue.
Greetings, just wanted to find out, if there is a chance to somehow force an application - a PC game in this example - to adjust itself to a full screen mode. I'm not really sure, how to describe that, since I've never met with a such thing before. I start the game and when it launches, it...
