SM_CXFULLSCREEN and SM_CYFULLSCREEN return the width and height of the client area of a window, when that window is at full screen. This is the area of the window minus the area of the title bar.

To get the actual x and y resolution of the screen (such as 800 x 600,) I think you should either use SM_CXSCREEN and SM_CYSCREEN in your call to GetSystemMetrics, which should return the full screen area. Or use SystemParametersInfo(SPI_GETWORKAREA, NULL, &rect, NULL) which will fill the sent rect structure with the area of the screen NOT covered by the Start bar.
