Laptop screens are meant to run at specific resolutions and if those are not used a black border or blurry text is what you will see.
But try this...In the BIOS you should have an option to "expand image to screen" or something to that nature. Make sure it is enabled.
I know that is what I have to do on my Omnibook 500 if I run a game at a resolution other then 1024 x 768.
