Hello AMD community. When i bought my laptop (HP G62), it came with the AMD ATI Mobility Radeon HD (5470 I belive) 5000 Series.

I downloaded Counter Strike 1.6 and started to play it. It ran with resolution with 640x480 [4:3] and had those black bars at the edges of the screen. I liked thoseblack bars, they allowed me to play that game with that (640x480) resolution, so it wouldnt stretch the game to the widescreen (fullscreen).

But, recently I formatted my hard drive. I downloaded all the drivers and ATI drivers also. I also installed CCC (Catalyst Control Center). And when I entered to the game (Cs 1.6) it is stretched it to the full screen. When I switch it to "Maintain aspect ratio", it still stretches to full screen. When I use "Centered", it adds black bars to the bottom and top, so the game window is too small in the center of my display. Impossible to play.

My display has 1366 x 768 [16:9] as maxed resolution. So atm I use 1024 x 768 in game (which is bad), so I get those black bars to the edges.

So my humble request is that I want to play the game as I used to play. In 640 x 480 and those black bars in the sides of my screen. Im open to try anything.

Thanks in advance.
