Make sure you are on the Advanced view Select your screen then under "Attributes" select "Enable GPU scaling" and place a check mark on 'Maintain aspect ratio" Should be like this, remember to apply it pneu October 13, 2008 8:21:04 PM ya but i dont have tht digital panel stuff Related resources what aspect ratio, or pixel size I have to maintain to ful.. - Forum aspect ratio problem - Forum COD Ghosts resolution/aspect ratio problem PLEASE HELP! - Forum Aspect ratio problem - Forum Aspect ratio problems.... - Forum Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer pneu October 13, 2008 8:43:08 PM is this because i have a vga cable with a dvi adapter? cuz its connected thru a dvi port.. nukemaster October 13, 2008 9:28:50 PM Ahhh crap, that is exactly why. my bad. looking for an alternative Edit....Nothing that i can find, BOOooo Can you run those games in window mode? that would at least allow them to look right. pneu October 14, 2008 1:29:47 AM yeah i can but then it'l be soo small !!! nukemaster October 14, 2008 2:07:08 AM The only other thing i could think of would be to add some resolutions that match the height of the screen to the games. 800 x 600 = 960 x 600 (still 16:10) 640 x 480 = 768 x 480 (Still 16:10) There is a link on adding more custom resolutions to CCC, with some luck you can run windowed games with your screen at low rez to avoid the small window effect.
