I've try to boot xp on my Core Duo, everything works fine until I try to mess around with some games (Warcraft III and Gunbound if it helps). Strangely enough I cannot get the games to load to full screen on my cinema display. The game screen size took only a smaller portion of the screen. Is there anyway to fix this or am I stuck with this. Any respond would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I assume you've played around with the in-game video settings?

Well it could be that Windows uses different resolutions than OS X, and PCs and Macs handle graphics differently. Windows just may not support full res in those games on your display.
