I have an ATI Radeon 3400 graphics card. I own a HP w2007 monitor, its resolution is 1680x1050. I am using Windows XP Media Center.
The problem I have is, that on several games that go into fullscreen mode, the resolution will be blown up by about 4 times its original size, and it'll show me only a portion of the actual game (usually the upper left), like it's zoomed in by a lot. In some games, I can actually move the mouse to sides to 'pan' the screen across the blown up game. Even if I enter the correct resolution of my monitor in the games options, it'll remain like that, no matter what I do. Some games work in their correct resolution, and some games only work if I put this xres=1680 yres=1050 behind the shortcut name. Then there are the games that don't change the resolution, even with all the tricks.
I have updated drivers several times, installed the Catalyst Control Center, but some games just don't get fixed and stay in the zoomed state. I have googled the problem and it seems some people have it as well, but I've never seen a definite answer given to fix the problem.
Any ideas on what's causing it, and what can I do to get rid of it?
