Do you have the latest drivers for your video card?

Have you tried changing the resolution within CS?

Right-click desktop, hit Properties, Display tab, hit the Advanced button, then the monitor tab, and there will be a drop-down menu of screen refresh rates.

Is your desktop running at a widescreen resolution? Make sure it is before you run CS.

Also, you can try forcing the resolution using the same method sciss0rz suggested, but instead of adding -autoconfig, add "-w 1280 -h 720", just like that, but without the quotes. That should force that resolution, then you should be able to see the whole screen and get into the video options, and choose wide screen from the options there.

Good luck!

What if you set your desktop resolution to normal-screen size, like 1280x1024, then try loading CS?
