    Maybe you are using an unsupported screen resolution.

    I'm assuming that you're using some sort of LCD/flat panel screen. If so, the hardware has one specific resolution that derives from the number of physical pixels in each dimension (eg. 1024 x 768). Although the video driver is likely to support several different resolutions, the only one that will really look good is the one that matches the physical monitor resolution. Any other choice is likely to look smunged.
