Hello Ramzy, welcome to the forums.

First off, try to proofread your posts before submitting. I understand that English may not be your first language, but do try to have the best grammar and spelling possible.

Second, what have you tried? You have stated your problem, and said a few other things, but you have not told us what worked, and what has not worked. Without these, this thread is useless as no one will know what you have done!

Third: DO THIS: Go into device manager and go to your graphics card. Right click and select "Update Driver". Let it install and everything, and this should fix the problem. (Assuming that the driver was the issue)

1) Change your monitor resolution to 800x600 or any res below the native one (right click and screen resolution)
2) Open up Ati Control Panel (or Nvidia control panel depending on your card)
3) Highlight "Attributes under display panel properties"
4) select "Full Screen" or "Preserve Aspect Ratio"
5) Click on the "Ok" button
6) Change your desktop back to the original resolution
8) Enjoy Non-Stretched or streched and without black bordered Games
