Getting Games To Run Full Screen

I bought this new toshiba satellite laptop last week. It has windows 7. None of my games will run full screen. I never had any problem with them on either of my other computers or systems xp or vista. I have w7 home premium.

I am just sick with trying to figure this out. The only option after this is to simply return the new laptop and buy a used one that runs on xp or vista. If there is anyone who could help me, i would be eternally grateful. I am so upset with all of this. I own a gaming site and none of my 33 games will work now with the windows 7 program.

Games Won't Render Full Screen

I'm running windows 7, no error code, any game such as gears of war, x3 terran conflict, what happens is it appears to be windowed, black frame around the startup screen about 2 inches , tried resolution and practically everything that i could think of that might be a problem to no avail, i am currently using a dell xps 1710, 2 gigs of ram, duo core processor, gforce 9700 i think, haven't looked lately, i think i have the latest updates.

Display Does Not Fill Full Screen

I use two display in an extended desktop configuration, a 19 inch and a 22 inch. After upgrading from vista to windows 7 professional i have a problem if i set my smaller display as the main display. This problem did not occur until i upgraded. The problem is that with the smaller display as the main, the picture on the secondary screen only fills part of the display and not the full display. If i reverse the setting and use the larger display as the main, then it fills the screen and the second display is also full screen width.

Full Screen Browsing With Ie

This is not a question but a suggestion. I couldn't find any more appropriate place to post it. I use full-screen browsing as much as possible to maximize my screen real estate, and have found a few things that would help make this easier.

1- when a new page is loading, show the status of the connection to the website on the main screen. The problem is that the connection progress is normally displayed to the user on a browser tab, status bar or system tray, but all these areas are hidden in full-screen mode so there is no information for the user to know the status of his connection attempt.

2- when opening a new tab in full-screen mode (either with the cursor or using ctrl+t), the new tab opens and then the screen immediately maximizes again. Of course, opening a new tab is only the first step in the process. We still need to enter a web address, or search term, or select from the favorites or history menus, so the menus and tabs should remain visible until the user has launched a website. Or, ie can go back to full-screen after the user clicks on a space inside the new tab.

3- as far as i know there is no shortcut key to access the internet search dialog box like there is to access the address bar (f4). I think one of the function keys should be used to give one-button instant access to the search field.

Fyi i am using ie8 on vista home premium, if that matters. I think this functionality would be beneficial to users of all different versions, especially given the preponderance of laptops, netbooks, and the upcoming release of chrome os!

Full Screen Anti Alias

Hey, today i have a question about disabling the full screen anti-alias. I installed windows 7 over my windows vista os back in october when windows 7 was first released in stores. I had a few games installed on my pc prior to me upgrading to windows 7 but since i've tried installing any game on my pc now that it runs on windows 7, the game either won't play or it advises me to disable the full screen anti-alias to play the games i install. The thing is, i don't know where to go to disable
The full screen anti-alias. Hopefully that is in fact the resolution in resolving this issue. Otherwise i will not be able to play the games i enjoy on my pc. Do help me out with this issue please.

How To Play Movie In Full Screen On Tv ?

Full Screen Aspect Ratio Problem

I have a new windows 7 laptop with a wide-screen display, and i've connected it via vga to a 4:3 aspect ratio projector. Of course, i set the display resolution to a 4:3 aspect ratio to compensate, and this works just fine on the desktop, but as soon as i attempt to run a full-screen overlay, say from a media player or a powerpoint presentation, the system makes the assumption that it's still in a wide-screen format, and inserts black bars on the left and right to compensate, which overcompensates on the already 4:3 ratio screen, resulting in everything being scrunched up in the center and stretched vertically.

Hdtv Desktop Output - Full Screen

When i first connected my hdtv via hdmi and duplicated the desktop on both laptop and tv, i got a full screen image (at 1366x768). Now, i get a small sized desktop in the middle of the hdtv, unless i only display the desktop on the hdtv (at 1080 lines) and not the laptop. How do i change this back? Also, i used to have the functionality when i hit fn+f5 that it cycled through a range of different display output modes. However, now i need to use windows+p to cycle through projector modes. Any ideas what's changed?

Assassins Creed 1 Not Playing Full Screen

I have an amd 3. 2 quad with a 5770ati graphics card all my gaming graphics is great, and all my other games run to full screen with no boarders (stretch from graphics card is ok). Oh an windows 7, great. My problem is only with assassins 1 which seems to run with a windows boarder of some type that i don't recognize, it has in the top left corner a white rectangle with a small blue square in the middle an to the right of that the name assassins creed.

The bottom also has the task bar, the best i can do to make it full screen is right click on the top bar an hit move then just click the bottom bar an the task bar disappears but the top one remains.

An if i go to close to the top during a game with my right mouse button on the move box comes up again. I don't know if this problem is with the game or a windows setting, i'm not very good with my new computer or windows yet.

Screen Display After Installing Win 7

Yesterday i did a clean install of win 7 home premium. After the install completed i attempted to adjust the screen display. Nothing i try can get my screen display back to how it appeared prior to installing 7. Now everything is a bit odd – the bottom menu bar is too wide and takes up too much space on the page. No matter what setting i use for screen resolution either the page itself or the font is too small or too large. My previous settings no longer work and the new ones display very oddly making it hard to see or read the pages. This is true regardless of application or web use.

I’ve attempted using just about every screen resolution, background, desktop option available including personalized settings. I’m trying to figure out what changed with the installation of 7 and how to resolve this issue and return the display to the pre-7 state.

Remove On Screen Display Volume

Basically anytime i'm running a full screen application, whether it be a game or movie and i use the touch keys to adjust the volume i'm immediately taken out of full screen. What if i'm in the middle of the game and it has to minimize it just to show that? Its terribly annoying and i have seen it in the services tab under device manager one time and was able to stop the service or end the process and it worked however since restarting i cannot find it again. Can someone please help with this?

Screen Saver Does Not Work - Display Never Shuts Off

The screen saver never works and the display never shuts off. How do i fix this? I have no idea how to make the screen saver work or get the display to automatically shut off. The preview for the screen saver doesn't even work. Everything i've read said this is typically because of a wireless mouse, but i do not have a wireless mouse or anything else attached to my laptop.

Computer Display Shakes Nonstop - Hdmi Tv Screen Resolutions

We just bought a dell inspiron 560. When i hooked up our 26" sharp hdtv (we'd used it on our other computer, worked fine) the computer screen was too big for the tv, and the top and sides were cut off. I've tried every screen resolution/aspect ratio and tv display view option combination i could try. I've found one or two that fit nicely, but the computer display shakes nonstop. I've tried rebooting but it doesn't work. The only difference between this computer hookup and our old one is the hdmi port on the dell. We bought this computer because it had the hdmi port for the tv, but i can't make it work is there a reason why the screen resolutions that fit the tv nicely shake? The recommended screen resolution is 1280x720, but it's far too big vertically and horizontally.

Blue Screen On Startup - Nvidia Phisx Display Drivers Problem

I am having a bit of a headache here. I currently run windows 7 ultimate. Everything had been running exceptionally. I recently ran driver sweeper and was rebooting with the application. It supposedly removed nvidia phisx, display and chipset drivers. Windows 7 now bsod's in the middle startup. I try to go into safe mode with any options and it bsods as well. I have run startup repair to no avail. Repair said it found a problem that a change in system settings but it couldn't do anything further. I tried to run sfc scannow on the command prompt in startup repair and it said there is a repair pending and it had to be restarted. I have windows xp on another hard drive so i can access directories that way with limited capability. I also did not set a recovery point nor do i have an image to return to. Any ideas?

Website Text Size Very Small

I got a new dell laptop with windows 7. For some reason, all websites appear with text in a really small font size. I've tried increasing font size and even set it to appear in largest text size. The problem is, then it's way too big and looks cartoonish. I also set it to make pages appear in 125% and 150%, which is also way too big and distorts the page.

I also lowered page resolution, but that doesn't work because the system has it set at the max, which is the suggested setting. Any ideas as to why windows 7 and internet explorer and firefox looks so different than xp or vista, etc?

Lost Office Small Business

I have a sony vaio vgn-sr19xn which came pre-installed with vista and a trial version of ms office small business. I upgraded my version of office online (via download). After completing a system restore and deciding to upgrade to windows 7 at the same time i now have no version of office of my laptop. I tried to downloaded office 2007 trial and upgrade to full version with my product key but was told it's not valid. The trial version of outlook 2007 has since frozen and now shuts 1- 2 secs after opening.

System Fonts Small After Icon Size Increase

I decided that i wanted to increase the size of my desktop icons. I held down ctrl and used the mouse wheel to increase the sizes. I also increased the text size in display properties from 100% to 125%. After doing this i logged off then on again to see my changes. I found that the system text was far too big to be a comfortable viewing size. I went back to display properties and i changed the font size from 125% to 100% (the default). When i logged off and on again, the text of the system it was incredibly tiny. It looks like the text size is like 8 or even 6pt. I tried looking the control panel to see if there was anything i can do, but i cant find anything.
