I have to go to a job site and need to take my office computer with me so I can keep in touch and fly. Have to leave my game computer home, too much trouble to take it.

My problem is that I can not get this computer to run with the full screen. It is a 24" monitor and Vista OS.

The screen I get is the ones with the black bars on the side. I have tried the changes; changing the SaveAspect=0, but it still show with the bars. Changing the resolution in the setup menu has the same effects. I have tried 1024 X 768, 1280 X 960, 1600 X 1200 and 1920 X 1200.
In the setup menu I have checked "Full Screen"

What am I missing? Is it a Vista issue that I can not find even with a search?

Is the monitor a non-4:3 aspect screen, i.e., wide screen (16:9, or 16:10)? If so, you'll need to specify the correct pixel values--the examples you gave were appropriate for 4:3 screens.
