After upgrading to windows 7 I am no longer able to play any games (example: Need for Speed: Most Wanted) in full screen mode like before on vista. There seems to be a Lot of people with this same issue as well but none have fixed the problem for me. I also tried to download and install Microsoft .NET Framework v4.0 beta 2 but that did not work either.
Please help anyone if you can, I've had more problems with windows 7 than vista already in less than one week.
I use samsung SF411 14.9 inch along with windows 7 home premium 64bit.recently i have installed nfs MW. but when i cannot play this game with full screen. i get black bars on each side of the screen..Go to ATI CATALYST Applicaton:
- Graphics/Desktop & Display/ click triangle button in big Screen Model and press "Properties" option
- now change resolution to lower one.(in my lapy i have changed it from 1366x768 to 1280x720.)
- Save & Exit. 2)now again go to ATI CATALYST Application
- Graphics/Desktop & Display/ this time click on bottom left small Laptop icon's triangle from where u can get to "Configure" option
My previous operating system (Vista Home Premium) crashed and I lost everything. I also misplaced the installation disc so I just decided to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate. Everything works fine aside from the games don't accommodate the full desktop screen even though it is already set to full mode. I can see black screen on both left and right sides of the screen. I already searched this forum for the solutions but still no luck. My laptop is Dell Inspiron 125 and my processor is Intel Core 2 Duo.
I have a problem with my laptop. Sometimes while running a full screen program (no specific program caused the error) a BSOD would occur.
My Hardware: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU M 540 @ 2.53GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.5GHz (Vista) ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 (for more specific hardware information please check the dxdiag.txt I've attached) OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_gdr.110622-1506)
I've never re-installed the OS and it came pre-installed in the laptop.
When playing any games like planetside 2 or tf2 anything on full screen. It will just got to the desktop. So then I would have to go click on the game to open it back up to play and then a minute later it will do it again. Is there any way to fix this because I have become frustrated with this occuring repeatedly.
Random computer lockup to BSOD at random times while playing games in fullscreen mode. I've updated my video drivers with a full uninstall with driver sweeper but the crashes continue. I've also run a memory test and believe that my memory is fine.
So my issue is with all my full screen games, after a few minutes to a few hours the screen go's black and an error pops up on screen.
Signal out of range set to "1680 X 1050 @ 60hz"
Normally I would just put it to those settings, but the issue is these are basically my setting in the nevidia control panel my settings are exactly that. The only thing I could see is the advanced display settings are 59hz. But you can't set it to 60 because windows 7 rounds down instead of up now.
It started when I left a game running in full screen and my laptop went to sleep mode.Every time I want to start a game now it doesn't stretch full screen. It just stays centered with a big black frame around it.
My laptop graphic card is ATI mobility radeon HD3650, the resolution of LCD is 1280*800, recently I installed windows 7(7100), and the latest display driver ATI catalyst 9.4 for Windows 7(downloaded from AMD.com).The issue is that my games such as War3 cannot be displayed in full screen. Black rim revolves around the game frame.
I know there is a function about stretching to fit the screen in Catalyst contrl center. But it does not work.

horizontal faint lines when in full screen games. using d3doverider(bundled with rivatuner) calms it alot and makes it dissapear in alot of games. I upgraded from my 5870 which was fine to my new ATI 6990. tested it on several screens and it makes no difference. So V-Sync and triple buffer has a positive effect on calming it. Often have to force it with third party softwarerar a milder version of this that is harder to see.i'm convinced it's to do with the graphics card being too fast or ''too good' for the screen and the image somehow can't keep up which causes the lines. was thinking about getting a 100hz refresh rate. The Card is brand new and works(with lines ) anyone know any work arounds like other cables that work like
I'm having a serious problem when trying to watch videos in full scream. When in full screen, the videos get slow, lagging in various scenes, sometimes with cuts in the audio too.
My config is Sempron 2600+, 1.5gb ram and Geforce 5500 256MB 128 bits. Display 22", 1680x1050 resolution. I'm using nvidia beta driver for Windows 7 (it seems to be the same driver used for Windows Vista, don't know).
I tried lots of codecs and players, nothing works. Windows Media Player and Media Player classic are working almost perfectly than any other players, but I really hate WMP.
I tried to change the settings in nVidia Control Panel, but I can't find the nvidia control panel, it's not in the right button menu.
I installed the game Marvel Ultimate Alliance and it's slow too, but I have all the requirements to play it smoothly. I'm using build 7600. How can I solve this?
I'll be in a game, and press caps. The window will minimize. This has never happened before. Also, when I click my cursor into a bar to type, then press caps, the blinking cursor thing goes away, and I must re click into the bar to continue typing.

I am experiencing mouse lag/stuttering in a few games recently, however this only occurs when looking around in a game. The two games that currently do this, are Borderlands 2 and BRINK, however I believe more do which I have not found. I know this does not occur in Skyrim and also Protype 2. This does not occur when "aiming down the sights" in these games, only when looking around normally. I have all drivers updated, tried different mouses, mouse acceleration, mouse smoothing, v-syncs, dropping all graphics to low, looking around for other issues, but nothing seems to be quite the same. I'm using a GTX 670 with a Razer Naga, complete specs in my profile.
I have a hp mini 210 netbook. Im trying to run games like broken sword on it. In my previous windows 7 instalation, i just selected 'maintain aspect ratio' from the display properties, and it gave me a full screen game.
I had a terrible virus, so had to format and install another windows 7.
I noticed the graphics driver is a bit different, and now when i select 'maintain aspect ratio', it makes no diffference whatsoever. how to actually get full screen again?
I have really bad lag when running any application that requires full screen mode. I've got the latest AMD drivers that supports my GFX card (Asus Radeon 4850). I used to have a Nvidia card and I would just change one of the settings to get rid of the lag. I changed the Graphics card and reformatted the computer so it shouldn't be a driver issue. I have Service Pack 1 and all the updates for Windows installed.The lag is unbearable for games, so I can't play any games that require full screen, no issues when it's run in windowed mode. I've used FPS monitors while running games (Fraps and MSI afterburner) and the frame rates readings are normal (above 60 always) but it always looks like 20-ish no matter which game I play.
For videos there's always some kind of problem. Used various media players, and different browsers for flash videos but sometime the video skips to the end very quickly, or won't continue playing and halts immediately somewhere along the way. Used MSI Kombustor to stress out the GPU, and it maxes at 70� at 100% load. Directx 10 stress test seems to be blurry, every other test seems fine to run but would have the lag from being in full screen.
I have an HP computer with Windows 7 and a Radeon 7450 video card. Many of the older games only run in a minimized screen, and there is no option for full screen. I need them to run in full full screen.
It wont run in full screen always in middle. I tried messing with game options but it doesn't work for all games, I really need this fixed. I am using Radeon HD 5470. Windows 7 intel core i5 4gb ddr3 rams.
I already tried many things that i found online but my game still keeping running on a small screen and idk how to play this game in full screen. I tried to change the resolution and also put on full screen also putting my 1366x768 and also check the properties of the game and put compatibility with windows 7 and change the resolution to the game to 600x800 and many other things and nothing my game is working perfectly but it just in a small windows on my screen
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit. I keep getting a blue screen of death randomly all the time when I play games and rarely (like once or twice ever) get them randomly when I'm just surfing the web. Can anyone help with with this problem/problems? I uploaded Text file of the dumps
I installed Windows 7 RC a few days ago and I am very happy with it except for one thing, and that's when playing games.
When I have played for some time (it's totally random) the screen goes black and it refuses to display the image again, tried unplugging it from graphics card, turn off power and nothing helps. The sound continues but nothing else respond.
This happens in all games i've tried this far (Prototype, Overlord II, Call of Juarez - Bound in Blood). It never happens when I'm simply using Windows or programs, only when I play games. Windowed Mode also seems to work without the screen going black, but unfortunately all games doesn't have an option to play in windowed mode.
I have all updates from Windows Update installed, latest graphics drivers and DirectX. The graphics card is quite hot when I touch it, so is it possible that Windows 7 is very sensitive to this? I never had this problem in Vista and it appeared right after i formated the harddrive and installed Windows 7 RC.
