very few games work past 96DPI, which is the default windows res at 100%, anything that's more than default will or could cause problems, sometimes screen makers alter the sizes so they don't fit in the default box, eg
any none default one always leaves a black box that doesn't fully fit the screen, nothing much game related but hardware and pc makers who haven't used the default size screens or res tbh
Display resolution are common, laptop screen from some makers aren't following the rules as they aren't in the guides for true screen sizes setup by default many many years ago...
to make it clearer, if the default is 15" for lets say a 4/3 screen and maker add's another few mil, then it offsets the size by a small factor, so throws out anyone using it as a 4/3 display as there's no such size as 15.1 or .2 or .3, but there is a point 4 so 15 is default, and so is 15.4, both will work, where as 15.1 will on some, not on all
class dismissed there goes lesson 101 in When the common aspect ratio went from 4:3 to 16:9, and some laptop makers didn't get the memo, or decided to not listen and do as they like...
