    More than likely, that is a symptom of your video card not being up to snuff.

    I could be wrong though, but that is a nice monitor.

    if the monitor is a wide screen version instead of square then the games can't run in wide screen mode. it is like watching a wide screen movie on a regular tv but have black bars above & below the movie instead of the movie filling in the full screen. check games sites for faqs & patches & updates.

    The acer will be widescreen, there isn't a 24" 4:3 ratio monitor commercially available that I know of.
    What resolution are you using, and what video card do you have?
