Also, the half-screen problem happens at the Windows XP boot, at the BIOS info screen, and at the screen right before the Welcome screen that dislays the users (the screen says "Windows XP Home Edition". The Welcome users screen is fine, however. I've tried setting program compatibility to Windows 98 and Windows 95 as well. I've also tried patching the games. Some of the games I have problems with are these:
Age of Empires (but only in the opening cintematics)
Okay, so first, here's my computer info:
OS: Windows XP SP1 (all Windows Updates installed)
Display Card: Intel 82845G
Display Driver version: 126.96.36.19965 (the newest version)
DirectX version: DirectX 9.0c
Computer Resolution: 1024x768
Okay, here's the problem:
In many older games (made 1998 or before, usually) or less advanced games (ones that I download off the internet sometimes, the game displays in half-screen, rather than full-screen, as if the whole screen had moved up and so you can't see half of it. These same games worked fine in Windows 98. I can't change the resolution in many of the programs because I can't get to the screen to do it, as it's all in half-screen. I've tried changing the computer's resolution as well.
Thanks in advance.
