    Hi, we have new iMac 24". I have installed Boot Camp and windows XP, so my son can play his games. Everyting was fine until we relaized the problem. When he sets up resolution ( the highest) in the game (usually it is 4X3 ratio) the screen stretches. I also noticed, when not in the game and I try to change resolution to say 1600x1200 it stretches to fit the screen as well. I know what the problem would be on PC, I would just go into BIOS and set "LCD display stretch - Disabled". It also stretches when windows starts, there are huge letters. Is there any way to disable stretching on mac? As far as I know Apple does not have such thing as BIOS? Any ideas what can be done??? Thank you.:confused: Did anybody encounter the same problem on your macs?

    I'm bumping this thread because I have the same question. Anyone?

    EDIT: Found my own answer. It's in the nVidia Control Panel, in the Display Scaling setting. Set it to scaling (fixed aspect), and you (I) are (was) set!
