What graphics card do you have? What operating system? XP? Vista?

I would assume that when you used "Ctrl-alt-delete" you used the "End Task" feature to close the program...

I had that happen once or twice while changing the resolution is Bioshock, but once i restarted the game, it always sorted itself out. Try changing the in-game res to something different, and see if the game returns to normal size, then set it back to the res you wanted to use.

Does this continue after you reboot Windows? Or shut down the laptop?

Try updating them, and see if it helps.
