    Hmm... so the game thinks you have 2 Monitors connected at same time so it only shows half screen? Did you try messing with the monitor cable? Also.. I think your Videocard can run it but maybe it cant... try this link and see if it's that

    Post back with the results ( if any )

    I wish I can get a screenshot, but i'm kinda a tied up. The screen is stretched out, as if I had 2 monitors. The thing is if I press ctrl alt delete The screen goes back proprtoin for half a second and flashes back two the desktop. I can also click were the buttons are supposed to be if the screen was normal (lol, sorry I am having trouble explaining it).

    Okay, I figure out this is happening with all my full screen apps. Maybe I am running 2 screens in windows also? not sure.

    Um, you could be running too big of a screen setting like 800X600, not that it is so big on the setting. Post back!
