so when i was playing a game. i alt tabbed right when it began booting up the game, and when i alt tabbed back to the game, the resolution got messed up. The game went from normal looking to the game looking like one half of it stretched across the whole screen. ive toyed with my graphics card resolution settings, made sure the computer wasnt set to be running on two displays, and ive ran out of ideas. i tried reinstalling the game, and trying other games, and it seems that all full screen programs do it. please help :S
