Pesky Black Frame - 1080p Gaming on XP

  1. I've noticed that when I run certain games there is a black frame (about 1" in actual width) around my screen even if I set the correct resolution. Since this is consistent across a few titles, I figure it's a display issue and not the games. My monitor supports a max resolution of 1920 x 1080 but even if I set it to that some games display this frame all the time. Not a huge deal as the games run just fine but I would like to see them running at full screen. Any ideas on how to fix this. The desktop is fine (full screen) as do most games with the exception of a few titles.
