Fullscreen games are not working!
 
Hi, :D

Games and emulators (like zsnes, quake3, etc) are sucesfully installed in my system (a laptop clevo 5600p, with mdk 9.2).

The problem is the following:
When I switch to fullscreen in ANY game (tux racer and the ones mentioned before, but not limited to those) they wont go to fullscreen. It stays the same has in windowed mode but centered and the rest black.

My current resolution is 1400 x 1050 24bpp.

For example, Quake3, when I choose 800x600 it occupies exactly that space in my desktop (when in windowed mode you can see the window, but when I set it to fullscreen from the Quake3 options it happens has described before).
But if i dare to make it higher than 1400x1050 the game continues but no visual feedback.

My 3dcard is a mobility radeon 7500.

Thanks for any help!
If I can accomplish I will be one step closer at deleting my W* partition!
:p
