Q: Full screen letterbox to FULL creen

hi, if i view movies in WMP full screen and they are letterboxed, how can i make them 100% full screen?


Preferred Solution: Full screen letterbox to FULL creen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all,
Been having a few computer troubles, last couple of days. Up until now, I have never had a computer crash since building my machine. Occasionally I've had to force-quit a program, but never random crashes.

I've had 6 in the last day or so, though. And none of them have happened with a BSoD. The last one to happen was while watching a movie. I Ctrl+Alt+Del'd and it got stuck showing a message "preparing security options..." with the time-circle(?), but never progressed past that point.

They all seem to happen at random, regardless of what I do. When playing full-screen games, watching full-screen movies, or even just sitting idling. I've tried updating my MOBO BiOS, my gfx driver, tried taking out and setting the RAM again, and even ran a full-system scan with both anti-virus and with CCleaner.

I'm afraid I'm not sure what I should do.

I tried to upload the files from the SF_Diagnostic_Tool, but got a message saying I didn't have the correct Security Token?

If there's any other information that you require of me, please don't hesitate to ask.

A:Computer crashes randomly; full-screen games, full screen movies

Hello all,

I've been having a very annoying problem for quite a while now. When I play games or use any sort of full screen program, it refuse to stay in full screen and flickers to the desktop after a 10-30 minute period...I'm aware this is probably another program trying to take control, but I can't seem to pin it down. I've tried disabling startup programs through task manager and I've also tried ending background process, with no success.

Can someone please advise how to troubleshoot this issue, or let me know an easier way to find out what is going on...

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Hi,Running Windows 7 RTM x64 on both my PC at home and my workstation at work.My PC at home has a square monitor and my work PC has a widescreen monitor.I used webapps (citrix) from home to get into work environment then remoted to my workstation.Since doing that, when I am physically at the workstation (at work), I can no longer remote desktop to servers in full screen mode.† Instead, it does a smaller window with "full screen settings".† Basically the full screen remote desktop is about 3/4 size of the monitor, not 100%.Any help appreciated.-thanks

Hi,-Start†"Remote Desktop Connection".-Click on "Options".-Click on the "Display" tab.-On "Display configuation" settings, you can change the "Remote Desktop Connection" display by moving the slider from "Small to Large".-By moving the "Slider" all the way to large, the display settings will automatically set to "Full Screen".Thanks

So I have been using ie 11 since coming to win 8, just not a google fan. But my concern is that sometimes when going to full screen mode I notice that on some sites screen will only go to full browser view rather than blowing out to all 4 corners of my screen. I rather like that, you can increase screen size and still have access to the desktop, but I cannot find a way to switch that, is it possible to make the browser always go to full browser size not full screen ? Win 8.1 64bit not a metro user

Thanks in advance for thoughts

For some reason, starting this morning, any time I open a game in full screen mode, I get a full freeze. No mouse movement, Ctrl+Alt+Del / Ctrl+Shift+Esc / Alt+F4 / Alt+Tab do nothing, and the ultimate test, toggling capslock doesn't change the light on the keyboard. Only a hard reboot remedies the problem.

I'm convinced it's not a video card issue simply because if I start the same games in windowed mode, they run perfectly fine. I updated to Catalyst 10.10d yesterday, but the problem didn't occur until today, so I'm not entirely sure if they are related. Google's turned up nothing, at any rate, and I don't want to go through the effort of a full driver wipe until I'm sure it's the problem.

Something that troubles me a little: Fallout New Vegas randomly started detecting my Radeon 3870s as a GeForce 7900. It did not do this originally. Fallout 3 and Oblivion still detect it properly, however.

This problem happens in all games I've tried, across multiple engines, including several Source games, several Gamebryo games, and a few other random games. This is not a BSOD issue, it simply freezes with a black screen. My drivers, DirectX and Windows are all completely up to date.

Edit: Forgot to include customary dxdiag info.

A:Full Screen Games no full screen on Windows Seven

Ok what is going on here is your screen is set to a smaller size in game then in windows.
If you check your windows settings you will see something like 1440x900 then look at the setting in game it may end up being 800x600. See the difference.
Also what game are you trying to play, I know that most steam games you need to enable the widescreen support in game then you can change the resolution to the correct size for your screen.

Hi guys, sorry if this is the wrong section - I couldn't find a dedicated video section. Anyway:

Firstly, I'm running a bug free and competent AMD Phenom II x6 machine with an ATI 6870 and 8 gigs of ram. Hard drives have plenty of space and there aren't any hardware faults. Everything tends to run fine.

Since I installed Silverlight to use LoveFilm streaming, though, fullscreen viewing inexplicably stutters!

Solutions tried:Reinstall GPU driver (cleaning it with driver sweeper, CC cleaner etc)
Reinstall Silverlight
Uninstall windows update that installed original silverlight
Reinstalled it again
Turned off any custom video settings in the ATI Catalyst
Tried using IE, FireFox (currently use chrome)
Tried increasing amount of space Silverlight can use
Tried turning hardware acceleration on in the Silverlight options

I can't think of anything else. It doesn't matter if the film or TV show is HD or SD, full screen will stutter. My native resolution is 1920x1080, as per, and my refresh rate is 60hz. No clashes there.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Note I've tried Silverlight 4 and 5, both cause the same problem.

Hey guys,

I wonder if someone can help me, I'm really getting stressed because this problem is really bugging me.

Any application like a game or a presentation wont use the entire monitor! It centers itself into a square and leaves a huge gap on each side.

I cant take a screenshot so I will try to draw an example.
Imagine the white is the application and the picture is my entire monitor.

Can someone help me please? I dont know what else to do. I've updated the drivers and nothing seems to work!

It's a HP Compaq 6710b, I haven't changed any display hardware. I've changed the RAM that's it.

Any help appreciated.
Thank You

A:Full screen applications don't use full screen!

im assuming you have a widescreen monitor, i have this feature on mine, il take a few screenshots with my phone to show what it does. this picture is the scaling options for flat panel monitors:

now, with this enabled, at your monitors default resolution, will appear like this:

now with it set at a resolution that isnt your monitors default will appear like this:

to stop this from happening, simply find out what your default resolution is for your monitor, and set the application resolution to this.

if you cannot find anywhere to set the default resolution, you can have full screen by reading through the manual for the monitor, there will be an option to remove the aspect ratio scaling on the monitor somewhere if you cant set it on windows.

Hi guys, as most of you know, graphic cards are definitely my weakest point, so hopefully someone can help me.

Since upgrading my graphic drivers from 257.21 to 266.58 when I play a game (or other full screen application) I get a "letterbox" effect with about 3 inches being missing from the top and the bottom of the screen.

Im guessing that for some reason the graphics card is thinking my monitor is widescreen when it's not, but I'm damned if I can find a way to unset it in Nvidia Control Panel.

Any sugestions other than rolling back the driver?

A:Solved: is there anyway to give skype full access to internet with full speed

Youtube buffers video, a live chat isn't buffered.

If your internet speed is 256kb/s you need faster internet service.

System details,
Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit
Intel Core 2 Duo 6600 2,4GHz
2GB Ram
500GB Packard Bell External Hard Drive - USB connection

I have a 500GB external hard-drive and Windows Vista is currently telling me it is full. When I check the hard-drive properties in Explorer it also shows up as very close to full. However when I select all folders on the hard-drive and check properties the size is only approx half. i.e 216GB

The drive system is NTFS and I have made sure in "Folder Options/View" that hidden files and folders are shown.

Does anyone have an idea what this could be ?

I've got a hard disk in my laptop partitioned into to two.

After a year of good service, my laptop is now, from time to time during use, displaying 'disk full' type messages when trying to save a file (Word) or unzip a file (Winrar) and things like that.

I can still access files on the disk, just not write to it, although the problem when it is occurring seems to be intermittent.

The disks aren't full and have over 10% free. When I restart Windows the problem goes away.

I'm guessing there is something wrong with the disk?

Any ideas on how to check for errors/problems or solve this?

When I bring up 'computer" (Windows + E) I've noticed that the bar graph showing how relatively full an external hard drive is is colored blue-green. But whenever there is less than 10 percent of the drive space free that bar turns red.

That made some sense for a drive with a few hundred gigabytes (although I don't understand the technical reasons) because I assume there needs to be a minimum amount of free space for the system to be able to do whatever manipulation of those files might be required, such as defragmenting the drive (something I've never done in decades).

However with a 4 terabyte drive the system says it is over 90 percent full when there is still over 350 gigabytes still available. That's a huge amount of space, as big as some drive C's on some computers, so I've been ignoring the red bar, but still keeping an eye on those hard drives that have it.

Does anyone have information on how much space should really be left unused on a hard drive? I hate to overfill a drive, yet also don't see the point in pulling a drive for storage with 200 or 300 gigabytes still available on it. Any advice (with sound reasons) appreciated.

A:How full is too full for a hard drive?

Defrag is done automatically when the PC is idle in Windows 7, you can also start it manually of course.

There is a tutorial or some such I remember seeing here to adjust when the bar turns red. I will try to find it.

Edit: Here it is low disc space partition color

It is not exactly setting the %, but disabling the coloring all together though. Can't find an exact answer to your question though. See if you will like the above solution.

When it opens, don't click the maximize button. Grab the lower right corner, the cursor will make a double headed arrow, and drag the window to the size you want. When you close it, it should open to the size you set it.

You'll need to determine the source of the popups. Anything tha takes focus from the full screen will cause it to revert. Try turning off programs to see if you can track it down.

I am running two browsers; Verizon w/Yahoo and Firefox on my XP home edition. Today for some reason while I was on Firefox a pop-up window appeared and asked if I wanted Firefox as my default browser. I have seen this before and I always declined. Today I figured I use Firefox more so I clicked on yes. Ever since I did that I don't have a full screen. The bottom 1/3 of the screen is plank, right about the task bar. I can't move it to a full screen and all my other screens are OK. I even did a system restore to a date before I accepted Firefox as my default and that didn't work.
Can anyone get my screen back for me??? Thank you

A:Can't Get A Full Screen

I'd suggest a free online scan for malware first:http://safety.live.com (requires IE)http://housecall.trendmicro.com/After that, I'd try uninstalling Firefox, removing the Firefox directories from Program Files and your user profile (save your bookmarks first), and then reinstalling with a fresh copy of Firefox. Could be corruption of Firefox that has caused this (presuming that it's only occurring in Firefox).

Hello Ilya,

When you are in F11 full screen mode, you can press the Windows key to temporarily see the clock, but there is no way to have the clock always there in F11 full screen mode.

To have the clock there, you would need to maximize the IE8 window instead of using F11 mode.

I spent an hour working on an intricate project only to accidently click on FULL SCREEN. This isn't the first time either. The only way I know of to get rid of the full screen I to close the program. So that's what I had to do and lost my hour's hard labor. I've Googled the problem and see that others have the same problem. For some F11 works for othrs Tab. For me NOTHING.

Anyone know how I can get my full screen back without having to close the program, (by clicking on the taskbar icon because with full screen I don't have my top toolbar to do anything!!!!!

Strange that taping the F11 key does not bring you to a normal. Alt key + Enter will bring a normal screen.

Should you wish to get the Taskbar, use the Windows key + T
Click anywhere on the screen and the Taskbar will hide itself on the full screen.

On my old gateway keybrd i would press F11 and i would be able to view full screen, press again and it would return to all tool bars and search menus, etc. I now have a wireless Logitech keybrd and mouse. When i press F11 it now opens a box indicating "no function has been applied to this key, would you like to assign function to this button, click yes if so.
when i click yes it is set to assign for F11 key, but it asks for which task? and nowhere under TASK:, does it have "full screen". Also, i know that if i click on "view" and it drops sub menu, at the very bottom it says "full screen" F11. But if i click on this and it gives me full screen i have no way to return to my tool and search menu. is their a button or key to return? i usually have to restart my system.

I have just installed Win XP Pro and being the first time I've used it I have a couple of problems.
No.1. I cannot get it to display full screen. There is about a half inch black border all the way around it. I have tried F11 and also changing screen size in Properties\Settings which makes no difference at all. I have a 17" Monitor set to 800 x 600 pixels.
No.2. Is there a way to clear recently used documents, other than one at a time by right clicking\Delete? In Win 98 there is an option by going to Settings\Taskbar and Start Menu\Start Menu programs, then Clear Docu,emts menu, but I can't seem to find that option in XP.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
