Your graphics card might not support a suitable resolution to enable the borders.

You could try following the instructions in this post:

to get DebugView, which should at least tell you why the side borders are not working.

The problem is that for the side borders to work, your monitor has to support a suitable resolution -- in this case, your 640x480 game should ideally run at 853x480, but AGS will try resolutions close to that such as 800x480 or 900x480. In this case, it looks like your monitor doesn't really support any 480-height resolutions.

You could try enabling the 2x Nearest Neighbour filter and see if it can find a resolution then.
