Try a different DVD. Try a different program to play the DVD's. Go into the DVD program's help and see what it says about screen resolution.

I CAN'T play my pogo games because my screen won't expand all the way to expose the entire game board, and my maximize screen doesn't work. I've tried Screen resolution without Success. I am about t


according to pogo, there is only two reasons for not fitting on screen.

  • Zoom level - First, please make sure to set the zoom level of the game screen to 100% by using "Ctrl" key and (+) or (-) to get the desired screen size.

  • Resolution - Try to adjust the resolution, for guidelines please check out this article : How to adjust your Screen Resolution / Size or this one if the game has been downloaded: How can I change my screen resolution?
So since you tried screen resolution, try the zoom level inside the game by holding the ctrl key and pressing the (-) key to zoom out or (+) key to zoom in. if it doesn't work, post to EA games the issue, games affected and your operating system so they can see if it is a bug.

When i play my game i cant see the whole screen how do i fix it?


If you are playing pogo games ?

Pogo.com is an online gaming website where you can play well-known games such as Monopoly, Battleship and Scrabble -- along with scores of other board, word, puzzle and arcade games -- in a Web browser window. The games on Pogo are programmed using Adobe Flash, and are viewed in a small box inside the browser. If your computer has a large display, you may find the games difficult to see because of the of the game box. Although you cannot independently adjust the of the Pogo game box, there are several tricks that you can use to make games appear larger on your screen. Magnify the browser window. In Internet Explorer 9, click the gear-shaped button in the upper-right corner of the screen, and click "Zoom" and "Zoom In." Browse in full screen mode. In Internet Explorer 9, press the "F11" key to enter this mode, and press "F11" again to leave it. Lower the screen resolution. In Windows 7, minimize the browser, right-click the desktop and select "Screen Resolution." Click the drop-down menu next to "Resolution," and select a lower resolution than the one currently displayed. Because a lower resolution uses less pixels to display the information on the screen, this has the effect of making the Pogo game box larger. Remember to change the resolution back when you are done playing. Disable the address and status bars in Internet Explorer 9 if a portion of the game window is cut off. Click the gear-shaped button, and then click "Internet Options." Click the "Security" tab, then click the "Custom Level" button. Click the "Enable" radio button next to "Allow websites to open windows without address or status bars," then click "OK" twice. Close and re-open your Pogo game window. Press the "F4" key. Some Pogo games enter full-screen mode when this key is pressed, but many do not. Hope this helps.

Choose Screen ResolutionFor higher legibility of documents on screen, you can adjust the screen resolution of your monitor (for monitors that support more than one screen resolution option). The higher the number of pixels, the more information you can display on your screen and the smaller items appear.

Whether you have a laptop or a desktop hooked up to this projector, you will need to adjust the resolution of your desktop to a level that the projector can handle. Without the Model number of the projector, I cannot tell what the resolution should be. I would hook it up and then lower the resolution level of the PC as see if it shows a picture. Does the projector show your desktop image on the screen? If not then changing the resolution will solve the problem.

I hope that I have provided the correct information that will assist you in the resolution of this issue.
If you have any questions, please post back with a comment to this thread.

DVD Player on Desktop


Have you tried using different players?  One of my favorite players is VLC.  You can google it and download it for free.  It is a bit difficult to figure out at first but it will handle just about any type of video even fragmented.
