black space around edges of screen

  • I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 with a NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200. When I have my resolution at 1280 by 1024 or lower I get black edges around my monitor. And to play America's Army I need my resolution at 1280 by 1024. If I don't have my resolution at that and I quit the game a weird message comes up that says "beginning physical memory dump" and a whole bunch of other stuff. I tried to get rid of the message but I couldn't find anything to fix that. And I fooled around with the monitor settings and still couldn't get it to work. So, I either need help finding a way to fix the black around the edges or a way to get rid of the message that comes up when I quit any of my games. PLZ HELP!!!

    I have a picture of what the screen looks like at http://www.zolknetwork.com/forum/showthread.php?p=38002#post38002
