yeah, just explore the settings page on the top left part. You should find your resolutions there.

If your resolution isn't there,

Open Steam
Go to the "Library"
Right-click the game which needs to be reconfigured
Select "Properties" from the menu
Click the "Set launch options..." button
Remove any launch options currently shown.
Type -gl in the box.
Specify the appropriate Video Mode and Video Option switches from the lists below

and after -gl u type -w and the resolution u desire
for exp -gl-w 1920

credit goes to someone from the Playdota forums. I just copy-pasted it.

two black boarders mean that you dont use the correct resolution (16:9 vs 16:10 vs 4:3)

I need help too. I'm stuck at the main screen of dota 2 (after loading) which you can see tabs for today, updates, play, watch, learn and socialize. How to play? Like I clicked the play button but nothing happens. Please help.

Fix your scaling on your graphics settings.
