In the graphics options of the games there is usually a selection for screen resolution and some have the option of windowed mode or fullscreen. See if you can find those options in the game options.

This is known as letterboxing, to fix this you need to do one of the following, set the in game resolution to the laptop's native resolution which is 1600x900 in your case,
or open up catalyst control center and set the scaling options to stretched mode, I couldn't tell you the specific option you need to get to as I don't use AMD graphics card, I'm an Nvidia chap
