So is there any way I can get my widescreen monitor to display black bars on the side instead of streaching the image to fit? Like a widescreen movie does on a regular tv. This is an example of what I want. I made it in ms paint, and yes I know it looks bad. lol Edit: We have the solutions below. Load your Display Driver (windows update wroked for me.) Then use the setting in your graphics card driver. See below for nVidia setting. And ATI setting.
