    Need help with the Aspect ratio options

    HuyPzo

      Hi everybody!
      I'm using Intel 82945G Express Chipset Family. My monitor resolution is 1366x768
      So whenever i run a 1024x768 program, two black borders will appear on the left and right of the screen
      But now, it expand to the whole screen instead, make the graphics look 'fat'
      I selected 'Maintain aspect ratio' as below, but it didn't work

      Can anyone help me out?
      Many thanks...

          Hello,

           

          Please bear in mind that this product has reached its End of Interactive Support so Intel no longer provides interactive support for this product via telephone, chat or e-mail.

           

          I suggest that you uninstall the driver installed and try using the generic driver posted on the following URL:

          In addition check on the settings of the application being used and make sure that this is not being affected by a setting on the software application itself.

              What is the name of the applications you are having this issue with?

               

              Could you please send the graphics report generated by the Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator control panel?

                  Thank you for the information, let me further investigate on this and get back to you.

                    This is honestly the most annoying bug in the software. Any time you create a custom resolution at 4:3, you have NO OPTION to maintain aspect ratio. It's complete crap. The driver always decides to stretch full screen.

                     

                    Please make this the #1 thing to fix. Make it so we can MAINTAIN ASPECT RATIO for custom resolutions.

                     

                    I'm purposely bumping all aspect ratio questions so you programmers know how serious of an issue this is.


                    Also fix the limited 60hz problem for monitors that can go to 120hz. That's another huge bug.
