Default problems with my screen resolution (i think)

yesterday i installed some new drivers and things to get my old games to run.

now i'm finding that when i run a program in a different resolution of the standard desktop, it shows it in the center surrounded by a black frame.
it used to "stretch" to fill the whole screen but wont anymore.
any ideas?

Is it a CRT monitor? It will just need a manual adjust.

If it's LCD, just search around your video card's control panel (right click desktop>properties>settings>advanced>your video card.), search around there for an option regarding stretched screen.
