    Problems scaling full screen w/ Intel HD Graphics

    dellboy36426

      My problem is, when I play a video game, my video card driver doesn't stretch the game full screen anymore, even though I have it set in the software to do so. This causes me to have to set the resolution in my game to the same as my monitor, and it crashes the game after playing 5 minutes.

       

      Running Windows 7 64 bit on Dell N5010 laptop

       

      I bought my laptop in 2010 and back then I was able to run all of my games fine. I could right click on my desktop, and set my video software to stretch my games to full screen without changing the resolution in the game.  ............. Well, since then, I had to send my laptop in to get it fixed (wouldn't boot). They had to replace the hard drive to fix it. Well, of course they sent the laptop back to me without any of the original drivers, so I had to download all the drivers. ............. My problem is, when I play a video game, it doesn't stretch full screen anymore, even though I have it set in the software to do so. The settings are not holding. In fact, I didn't even have to change the settings to full screen, it was already set, and won't let me even change it to "center". I have tried multiple drivers from the Intel sight, all for 64 bit Windows 7. I even tried the drivers from last year. They all run the same software interface on the desktop, and all don't give me what I used to have. Do I have to do something extra when I install a different driver perhaps? Something that uninstalls the graphics software perhaps? Has anyone had this issue with the Intel HD graphics before?
