Sim City 4 misalignment

I just loaded Sim City 4 on my desktop. When it starts up, the screen is split. The margins are not aligned. In other words there is a large black space almost in the middle of the computer, and the game has wrapped itself around so part of it is on the left side and the continuing section is on the right side of the screen.

I tried deleting and reloading and it does the same thing :(

Serial code for sim city 4

If you have lost your code for the game, you will have to contact EA to provide them with proof that you purchased it.

If you are asking for an illegal copy, that is something you will have to search for somewhere else.

    The Id number that came with my sim city box does not allow me to load it on my computer[ceul-qlf8-xds9-ntks-uwpg]even after registration.

    You could probably contact Maxis with your proof of purchase and they may be able to provide you with another key. You should also refrain from posting your CD-Key online.

    if you really are asking for the parts of MS word 2003,i bet this should help and really there are more than 4 parts

    1. The Title bar gives the name of the document and the program being used

    2. On the right side of the Title bar are three buttons.
    a. The Minimize button makes the window disappear from the screen without closing
    the program. You can bring the window back by clicking on its button on the Task
    bar at the bottom of the screen.
    b. The Reduce/Maximize button makes the window smaller or takes it back to full size.
    c. The Close button closes the document or program.

    3. The Menu bar offers dropdown menus for things you do in Microsoft Word.

    4. The Toolbars display icons that perform specific tasks when clicked. Often the toolbar icon performs the task without offering any options.

    5. The Rulers display the tabs, indents, margins and give the user a visual guide for alignment.
    a. Tabs are set on the ruler by clicking the spot on the ruler where you want to the tab to
    start. Different Tab settings can be used to align text, decimals and indents.
    b. Indents and margins can be set with the handles.

    6. The Document display window is where the current document is visible.

    7. The Scroll bars allow the user to move up and down the document in the window.

    8. The Status bar shows the location of the cursor, number of pages and includes advanced toolbar options.

    9. The Task bar displays buttons for Open programs or documents.

    How can I copy the standby screen to Word Document, then probably edit it to paint?

    I am not sure what exactly you mean when you say "Standby screen", if you mean the screen saver, then go to >display settings, > Screen Saver > then click Preview and while the preview is running, press "Print Screen" key on the keyboard, the image will be copied onto the clipboard, now close the display settings and paste it into the word document/paint.
    We call this as "Screen Shot", you can also do the same with the desktop, suppose when you want to capture the image of your desktop, just press "print screen" key on the keyboard and paste it into the paint or other photo editing software and save it. Anything that you can see on the desktop/display of your monitor while the computer is running can be captured in the same way.
    Good luck.
    Thanks for using FixYa.

    After booting the deskop screen appears without start button

    Hmm is there an error displayed or does it just boot like that? I would go into safe mode, by pressing F8 mutiple times at startup loading screen. In order for me to help you with the problem i need to know more about your computer. Go to START, then RUN. Type in "dxdiag". Save all that info to desktop then open with notebad or Word or something. Then copy and paste it on here.
