Josh,

I had the same problem on 1 pc. Open mach 3/config/general config. lower center is screen control. check boxs, close and restart mach.
You can then stretch out the screen to the size you want.
 
Let me know if this works for you.

You can also close Mach3, right click in the middle of the desktop, and choose properties. Then click the settings tab, and change the resolution to 1024x768.

 UUCCIMI,

general config should be on the config tab. If not, go to view and reload your 1024 screen set.
It will be in your mach 3 folder.

There is no General Config in that version. Theres a Config>Logic and Config>State. I believe you want to look in Config>State.
