(Display Screen) Messed up while attempting to play ISO

Hello, I am having an issue with my Screen when I attempt to play CERTAIN games

I am using a VGA cord to display on my HD TV everything is fine
I can load the OS up in 1920x1080p no problem.

I can also run NON-CD required games like... L4D2 but...
Game likes... say... "Fable; The Lost Chapters" or "Stronghold 3" *REQ. to be mounted* even though the settings are set to "1920x1080p in the options the entire screen is put about 3 inches to the right which really limits my gaming capability.

I assume it has something to do with VGA because I played these games before on my old PC with a Monitor and NEVER had this issue.

Like I said this ONLY happens when I try to play games that require me to Mount the discs.

Any simple resolution?

    Where did you download the game from?


    Though I still assume it to be something with VGA as I had no problems what so ever on a monitor and a lower PC build as well.

  5. Piracy

    When someone installs and uses commercial software without paying for the program, it is called "pirating" the software. This name comes from the traditional meaning of the word "pirate," which is a sea-faring criminal that steals and loots belongings from others. But far from the stereotypical sea pirate, a software pirate can be anyone who owns a computer. Software piracy is committed by simply downloading or copying a program that a user has not paid for.

    Since computer programs are stored in a digital format, they are easy to copy and reproduce. For example, a game may be burned to a CD and transferred to the computer of an individual who has not paid for the program. Software programs can also be illegally downloaded from the Internet from unauthorized sources. Since pirating software does not require many resources, it has grown into a major problem for the computer industry.

    While it may seem like an innocuous act, pirating software is the same as stealing. Software companies often invest thousands or even millions of dollars into creating the programs they sell. The income from selling these programs is what allows companies to produce the software and to continue improving the programs we use. Just because it is possible to copy a software program does not mean it is OK. Installing a commercial program from an illegal copy is the same thing as walking out of a store with the program and not paying for it.

    While there are some programs that are free to use (such as shareware and freeware programs), it is important to pay for commercial software. You can avoid software piracy by only downloading software from authorized sources and making sure that you have valid software licenses for all the programs you use. Remember that paying for software programs supports the software industry, which is good for all of us!
