i had vista first and et was rolling fine, but now win7 was installed and i have strange vertical black boxes on either side of the screen.
when i installed et on another pc in my house with win7, it had the same problem, but a friend of mine plays et on win7 without the black bars.

no idea what gfx drivers are?
my screen is on 1440x900, which is the maximum resolution.

Its the aspect ratio. Try this:

seta r_mode "-1"
seta r_customwidth "1440"
seta r_customheight "900"
