sounds like a directx problem, you should make sure you have the lastest version.

try changing the resolution in the game itself?

Sounds more like badly written drivers to me, try and update them to the latest official version of whoever makes them....

What game do you have this problem with?

If its JA, it could be your autoexec.cfg

What brand computer is yours? What is the resolution the game you're playing needs? 800x600, 1024x780, 640x480... etc...? Try to change the default res in your computer. If you're running XP, click on Run from the Start Menu, then type in MSCONFIG or services.msc and figure out what's wrong, after viewing the control panel.

It could be a problem with the monitor (not supporting that res but it still appears as an otpion).
Whenever I play Age of Mythology my screen size is set to 800x600 even though the in-game screen size is 1024x768.

I used to have this problem with win98......I think its gone now.

Reinstall Drivers that did the trick for me.
