hey all, i recently updated a vista 64 machine to 7 64. Its win preminum. and i have a ATI HD3200 onboard memory, but it is dedicated, and i am running all the up to date drivers for EVERYTHING. my problem is this, if i change the resolution, i get black bars instead of like it would used to strech the screen to fit, now its black bars like your watching a wide screen DVD on a regular tv. so because of that, in Games its like that too, and for somereason now Left for Dead 2 wont even run, when everything was working with vista. Help please.

You may have to adjust the overscan/underscan setting in the ATI Catalyst Control Center. This thread may be of help to you:
