Hey, I need some help with a problem I`ve been getting. For a while I`ve been playing normally on fullscreen. However recently as I set the game to fullscreen, the entire screen goes black and the game appears in a small box in the upper left hand corner without maximizing. I`ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game and still no luck. Someone help PLEASE. The window is just way too small to play on this.

You might have played around with a graphics settings recently? Or maybe a recently installed software / game played around with the graphics settings.

If you have an nvidia GPU (and provided you have the nvidia-provided drivers), right click on the desktop, and choose NVIDIA CONTROL PANEL (if it's not there, try looking in CONTROL PANEL).

When a window comes up, on the side you should see a expandable drop-down under DISPLAY. Under that, there should be SCALING. Choose that, and select USE MY DISPLAY'S BUILT-IN SCALING (or if that don't work, choose USE NVIDIA SCALING).

If you have an ATI, although the steps are different you are looking for a setting called SCALING. Same with Intel intergrated graphics. A few restarts sometimes may be required mind you, so have some patience if it don't work the first time round.
