It's a problem with your video card, you probably have the Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family. This is unable to run certain games at certain video settings. A way to fix this is to set your display to a lower resolution (1280x768). Starcraft will then run in full screen. If it does not run at full screen at first, set the resolution to it's lowest setting, run SC, then change the resolution to (1280x768).

Nope unfortunatly it didn't work either.. I'm not sure what it is..
Should I post my system specs (best to my knowledge) if that will help?

I had that same problem, try messing around with your resolution settings.
i have a sony vaio vgn-nr385e on Vista Home Premium.
i don't know how i fixed it. but in WarCraft3 it did the same thing except it was a tad bit bigger. But one day it took up the whole screen randomly. so i got excited and put in StarCraft and now it takes up the full screen. I don't really know what i did. maybe try watching a cinematic on War3. if not... maybe the problem works itself out somehow.
