so yeah, i'm trying to play a game that has 4:3 resolution, but instead of black border appearing on both sides the game stretches to fill the entire screen. i went into my intel hd graphics control panel to turn on maintain aspect ratio, but i didn't any option for it. all i have is 'center image' and 'maintain display scaling'. i need some help

try changing the resolution in the control panel to a non-native resolution first.. then the maintain aspect ratio should be available

I believe the best way to go is leaving Intel® HD Graphics settings by default and only change the resolution within the game settings.

there is no option for that in the game's settings, otherwise i would have already tried it

So, the options Center Image or Maintain Display Scaling do not help?

What is the game title and Intel® HD Graphics / Intel® processor model?

BIOS updates are obtained through the http://www.intel.com/support/oems.htm system manufacturer and may include Video BIOS updates.

http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/CS-029985.htm Graphics Drivers — Video BIOS FAQ

I recommend you checking with them as a failed or unsuccessful BIOS update may damage the system without possibility of recovery.
