Help with screen resolution

So I recently just got my laptop wiped clean due to the FBI green dot virus. I play games on my computer and currently my desktop screen resolution is 1920x1200. When I load up a game such as Call of Duty, or any other game, I usually shrink the screen resolution so I can get more frames. Even though it isn't HD/1920x1200, I can still play. It doesn't bother me; however, when I got my laptop back, whenever I shrink the resolution, whether it is my desktop or a game, instead of taking away the "HD" quality and stretching out the game and making it look somewhat bad, it keeps the "HD quality" and shrinks the game itself. Meaning, the game becomes smaller and the rest of my screen is black. Let me explain this a little better. Let's say I was in windowed mode. Well, unlike fullscreen, you can adjust the window by dragging the edges and make the game smaller or bigger. For example a game like minecraft. So basically it is just like that when I am in fullscreen, it just replaces the rest with blackness. This would be easier to understand if I could get some pictures up. If someone understands please help me with this.
