Default HP Pavilion zt1185 Display Problem

Well its been awhile now and the screen thing is getting really annoying. Whenever I play a game on my HP Pavilion zt1185 laptop the game screen is messed up. The screen is decreased to half the size.

Here's what it looks like:

Thanks for any help!

Go into your game settings and change the resolution size. Also, check HP United States - Computers, Laptops, Servers, Printers & more for newer video drivers.

The game doesn't have any resolution settings. I think its either the monitor, because I tried to on some other games and I still get the mini screen.
Also the downloads didn't really help. I'm using S3 Pro Savage for my display adapter. When I used ATI it worked. I'm not really sure how to change the drivers though.
