A quick search on the web shows many have issues with that video card with games and have updatted it with this driver Confirm Download

Lomai is correct in that you really should fill in your specs, makes it easier to help you with problems.

Hi ghuk

Have you tried adjusting the aspect ratio:

Go to the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver properties (either through the system tray icon or through Display Properties, Settings, Advance, Graphics Properties) and go to display settings, aspect ratio options. Change it to full screen .

You may be out of luck unless one of the Guru's here say otherwise
