First of all, here is my system:
K6-2 500mhz, 196mb ram, Sb Live X-Gamer, 3d Blaster TNT2

Whenever I play NFS: High Stakes, The video is not full screen, instead it looks like it is in widescreen mode, but I set the video to full screen in options!  Anyone know how to fix this?

Check the 3D options (I know 3 has it, not sure about 4) make sure you don't have letterbox enabled. (not in the game)

I had a problem similar to that. Try updating drivers it usually fixes the problem.

change your display resolution in the windows control panel to a lesser value.
Or match your game resolution to your
windows resolution mode. If it's 800*600 in windows then change it to 800*600 in the game too and vice versa.
I think this might help you
