Games running in lower resolution on the desktop resolution does not fill the screen

I have a laptop HP ENVY 17 TS with NVIDIA GT 740 M and Intel 4600HD graphics drivers and running Windows 7. Whenever I want to change the resolution in games at a lower resolution on the desktop resolution, the game shrinks to its view, leaving the couple of inches black bars on the edges. For example, if my the desktop resolution is 1920 x 1080 and I want to start a game in 1600 x 900, the game does not fill the screen, instead, it leaves an amount of empty space on the edges of the screen.

In order to solve this problem, I tried the following steps:

I first tried to locate the view tab in the NVIDIA Control Panel in order to define the scale/stretch in "Full screen", but my version of NVIDIA CP isn't the view tab (my NVIDIA drivers are the latest version).

Then I discovered that I should do this in the Intel HD Graphics Control Panel. My Intel HD Graphics CP has an option named "Calibration" under display > display settings and it doesn't show the option to retain display scaling that is checked by default and does not change. Also, after searching the Internet I saw that some people suggested entering the 'advanced settings' and try to make changes. When I try to enter advanced settings, under view, it says 'this screen does not support advanced settings'.

After trying without success, I tried the update driver Intel via their website, hoping that it can fix the problem. I ran the small Intel application on their Web site that identifies my chipset and offers me the latest driver for this chipset. Web site told me that the driver is installed on my computer is 10.18.10.3304, and there is an update for what is 15.33.18.64.3496 (or 10.18.10.3496). So I downloaded the file, but when I tried to run, it gave me this error message: "the drivre being installed is not validated for this computer. You can get the correct driver from the manufacturer of the computer. Setup will now exit. "that makes no sense.

After trying the above steps, I'm not able to solve the problem, and I need help from someone who really knows how to solve this problem.

Thank you.

Solution (I hope)

1. choose the properties of the graphic (logo Intel) option when you right click on the desktop

2. go in view

3. go through the resolutions on the 'Resolution' and change to this resolution (do not click Apply)

4. for everyone to go to 'Scaling' at the bottom of the screen and change it to scale full screen (do not click Apply)

5. Repeat until you get back to the higher resolution (that won't let you change the scale).

6. quickly choose a few resolutions from the drop-down menu to make sure that they have changed their scale.

I had a problem with some resoultions changing the way they were, but which should solve most of the problems.

    The image (it back up to an external drive as full image) and reinstall Windows XP, update, drivers and everything.  Install any plugins that you NEED to do all that you see here that the bat hurt.  If the problem no longer exists, something has gone wrong with your system from before (corrupt files or your cleaning is not as complete as you think) and if the problem persists - probably something to do with the material. In all cases, you can return to the image if you wish.

    Use Autoruns to understand this all starts when your computer's / when you log in. Look for whatever it is you do not know using Google (or ask here.) You can hopefully figure out if there are things from when your computer does (or connect) you don't not need and then configure them (through their own built-in mechanisms is the preferred method) so they do not - start using your resources without reason.

    You can download and use Process Explorer to see exactly what is taking your time processor/CPU and memory. This can help you to identify applications that you might want to consider alternatives for and get rid of all together.

  • Cannot connect to the game using Microsoft account, password is incorrect, or account does not exist.

    I just installed Dirt 3 on my new computer, when you are prompted to log in to my Live account. I put in my info, then the code of the key to the game. She then returned and say my account does not exist or my password is incorrect. After trying twice more I came here.  It is the same account and password that I use here.

    I'll start from the beginning.

    Some time ago a friend bought a game for me (Dark Souls prepare to Die Edition) by Toys R us as a gift. I needed to connect with GFWL to save progress. I did, using my XBOX Live account. I played 40 hrs of this game, my PC is dead. It was during the summer 2014.

    Fast forward to now, I reactivated my Windows Live account and tried to install the game in my new computer. After that I set my account sign in problems (had to change my password three times until he acknowledged) the error message I now get it that the product key is registered to a different Windows Live account.

    There is no other windows Live ID someone else has access to my account STEAM or WINDOWS ACCT. To my knowledge none have been hacked. I was put through three individuals when I called them. Account, a kind of guys then sale of troubleshooting. After that wanted to sale onto me accounts that I hung up. No one knew that STEAM has been and has not yet recognize that GFWL is actually managed by Xbox apparently (have concluded that myself). I know GFWL is now active, BUT I'm always supposed to be able to access my game.

    Hi CliffordKillen,

    What version of Windows have installed you on the laptop?

    When did you notice this problem? If this is a recent problem, follow the steps in this document to restore your computer to an earlier point.

    Follow these steps in this document to start your computer in Mode safe. Safe mode that will start the Basic programs and drivers required to start Windows. If the screen is back to normal in safe mode, it lets us know that the issue is not the base drivers. We can then pass from the computer in a clean boot State. This will let us know if a software conflict is causing the problem.

    If none of these measures, you can contact Toshiba.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 desktop shortcut does not open

    Het all. I just replaced my old HP 4180 with a new Officejet Pro 8600. We have three computer that connects to it, and the shortcut on the desktop to open the software of the printer communication does not work only on your laptop. I used the installation of itentical on all computers. The Office has the full package software and two laptops have only the basic print and scan package installed. I checked the target of the shortcut on two laptops, and they are identical. I also tried to disable the antivirus and firewall software, but that made no difference - still unable to open the software to set the printer preferences, etc.

    The laptop in qiestion is an EeePC H1000 running XP 32 bit, SP3. BTW, the laptop that has no problem is an identical unit.

    When I select the shortcut, the hourglass appears for a few seconds, the wireless icon flashes as it appears that the software is attemptong to connect to the printer, but the window indicating that it is retriving the device information will never appear and therefore also the printer wizard window also never appears.

    There's no problem with printing. Just get the Printer Wizard to open. Also for the record, if I select the printer in the Control Panel printer and faxes section, can I get the printer properties and preferences windows and make changes, but no way to get the companion window.

    I tried to reinstall the HP software without change. I also tried a "repair" and also no change.

    Any thoughts appreciated as to what else to look for that may be causing my problem.

    Finally, find my own solution. I followed the instructions in the Support Document HP c03640384 HP Printer Wizard opens with an error in Script or in Notepad.

    Even if it wasn't exactly my problem - I was just getting no response at all, - using the patch of registry (for my WinXP) of this document got my desktop shortcut does not work to open the Print Wizard.
