nope, not a bios problem. Your monitor has certain resolutions it can support and the standard VGA or even nonstandard size is the default boot screen size before your video driver initializes is being used. Once the driver initializes it uses the correct screen resolution and your screen straightens out.

The monitor should have a screen settings control that tells it how to handle different resolutions such as auto-scale, auto-fit, or don't scale, etc. Yours looks to be set to don't scale or don't auto fit. There is nothing wrong with that but if it bothers you, you can set the Monitor, not the video card to auto scale and it will stretch the window out.

When you run a game you are running it at a lower resolution than windows so it goes to a small screen in the middle of the monitor. Once again, if you set your monitor to auto scale, it will stretch it out to fit the screen.
