Please help with screen problem

  meachy 16:23 24 Jul 10


I have just tried playing dawn of war and then roller coaster tycoon 3 on my new laptop and both have cut both sides of my screen off leaving them black and the game is centered. Anyone know why it's doing this?

Sorry I didn't really know what to put to search for this issue.

Go into the game options and look for video or graphics settings and adjust the screen settings to your screen size.

You mean to the same resolution? I've done that but it still seems to cut both sides off.

Try another resolution.

I have tried all of them but none change it.

Were those games made for widescreen?

If 'Yes' do the games themselves, give you any options to change the size or shape?

Yes the Game as been created to run at a different Resolution to your Laptop, So its changed it to what the game uses
