What kind of card do you have? For an Nvidia card, you need to go to the Nvidia Control Panel (you can get to that by right-clicking your desktop and then selecting it from the menu). Once there, make sure you are looking at "advanced settings". Then, on the menu on the left, under "display" you will see "change flat panel scaling". I recommend selecting "Use NVIDIA scaling with fixed-aspect ratio".
thelovebat: How do you find the scaling option in your graphics card/display setup? I'm not finding anything for that in all the menus I can find. And I'm using windows 7.
For an ATI card, it's a little harder to find... you have to open the Catalyst Control Center (again, you get there by right-clicking your desktop) and then select your display, and go to "attributes". Annoyingly, there's a weird bug where you can't actually set the scaling option until you LOWER your resolution to something less than your native resolution. Then you can set it, and then set your resolution back to normal and it will work. Very strange. Anyway, here's a picture of where it is for ATI cards:
