Resizing desktop greyed out!!

I'm using the latest software of ati driver 9.8 for my aspire 4920 laptop. It comes with ati radeon HD 2400 XT. However once i installed the software, i can't seem to set the aspect ratio for it. My games were not fit nicely to my screen, instead blackbar occur beside it.

Also there's no option for me to change my aspect ratio in advanced function like what it stated in the image. Any solution???

Was it working ok with the 9.7 driver, if so i would reinstall it. I other question do you update the complete package, ccc panel etc when you install the driver - if you didnt that could be the problem - running the older version ccc with the new driver.
Really cant think of much - but would recommend the last working version, as it solves the headache straight up.

The hint is right there in your screenshot.

"for your current display configuration, please use advanced settings to enable resizing of your panel"

click on the advanced button.

Resizing Desktop Windows
In XP I could resize the windows on the destop for each destop icon, place the window and lock it right above the icon itself, and configure what the contents (preview pane, Icons, details, etc.) were for each window. Is there a way to do this in W7 Home Premium 64bit? Thanks in advance.
