MS flight simulator display problem

I cannot get Flight Sim 2002 to display full screen no matter what I do. M$ support is no help.
I’m using an ATI Radeon 8500-128MB, and iiyama 17.5" LCD set at 1280x1024(native res), using the DVI input. No matter how I set resolution in both the program and display properties, the result is a 5x9" box in the middle of a black screen. Changing the game display settings has no effect in any case.
Am I missing something here? how do you get this game to display full screen? I’ve tried using the Sub input to the monitor too, updated all drivers, reinstalled the monitor, etc.

Wrong game, wrong issue.
Basically, FS-2002 is displaying in 800x600 no matter what settings I use.

I hope I dont sound like I’m being funny, you’ve probably already thought of this. But I thought I might as well say it just incase you haven’t.

Have you got XP or 2K? Could it be the refresh rate? Have you got a refresh rate fixer for XP or 2K?

Have you got a refresh rate fixer for XP or 2K?

What’s that? It’s set at default of 60, I only have the choice of 60 or 70 and it doesn’t help to change it. I guess I’ll have to try switching to sub input again and re-set resolutions some more, but it looks really bad at anything but 1280x1024, and DVI is so much clearer.

Well, the simplest solution always works, doesn’t it?
All I have to do is run it in a window instead of full-screen mode, and drag the window to full-screen size. It looks fine this way.
A typical M$ bug. After doing the above, it now will switch to a true full-screen mode with the right resolution. weird!
