    Yep. That's what I got in Speccy. But it's actually 1770x1000.
    (P.S: Yep, through HDMI)

    Seriously, how can I solve this issue? If I knew what was causing the issue, I'd fix it in a heartbeat. But nothing has worked! People have been giving me the same answers to this problem, like updating my drivers, but the games don't work! In fact, I've went to 4 sites now about this issue. But nope, I can't even find out what the problem was.

    I used to have a problem with BL2, now it works perfectly even with using modded weapons through Gibbed. All I did was right click and verify the game through Steam - perhaps that'll help your issue.

    Forget Speccy. What does it say when you right-click on the desktop and view Screen Resolution? Does it recognize your monitor and resolution correctly?

    Then you have to see if BL2 and Left 4 Dead 2 are set to match your native resolution.

    What you're eluding to is in step 9 here: Tips on Troubleshooting Game Issues - Windows 7 Help Forums

    And yes, for game issues you really do need an accurate list of specs. But...

    I don't know if it is in synus21's guide, but have you tried to 'Delete Local Content' from Steam and then reinstall? Steam will download the game all over again.

    But there is a also an option to verify the integrity of the game's files. Just right-click on the game and select Properties from the end of the list. Once the windows pops open, choose the 'Local Files' tab, then from that tab, choose the 'Verify the Integrity of Game Cache'.

    Couldn't hurt!!!!
