    It sounds like it is playing it in a smaller resolution than your monitors
    native resolution and it isn't streching it to fit. You might see if your
    video settings allow you to strech to fit the screen when using a smaller
    resolution.

    Some video cards when you play in lower resolutions than what you're monitor
    is currently displaying will not zoom in and fill your screen.

    Check your monitor settings (LCD, I assume), and check the advanced settings
    of your video card.

    If you have nVidia video then the nVidia control panel is where you want to
    look. There should be something about displaying aspect ratio settings.
    Something in there should be obivous.
