    Hey all,


    I have some older Computer Games with a native 4:3 aspect ratio. When I try playing them on my HP widescreen laptop, the image is stretched to fill the 16:9 screen. Is there a way to have these games display in their native ARs? I'm running Windows Vista.


    Thanx in advance,


    JD

    Change PC resolution before you start the game. There are some games that allow you to manually chose the resolution, but the method here is sure-fire.

    Yes change the resolution on your laptop and also check the video settings in the game as well.
