Hey guys, I've come to you hoping you might be able to help me. Ever since I bought this computer which was around April of this year, I've had a major issue with alt-tabbing while playing a game. It doesn't matter what game, what maker, what quality, etc... If I'm playing a game and alt-tab out of it, I literally have to play the lottery with the game in order to get back in, it doesn't matter if I click the game, try to alt-tab back in, or do any kind of key combination, It's literally a 1/100 chance that I'll get back into the game.

This makes it infuriating to play online games competitively especially if I have some mouse or other random issue and HAVE to tab out, I get screwed. It does occur less often in windowed mode, however it still happens. Is there any chance any of you might have the answer?

Thank you in advance for any responses,

A gamer in need

might help if we knew what kind of computer it was, what kind of operating system your running, and what games your alt tabbing between.

it is an iBUYPOWER Gamer EXTREME 569D3, windows 7 home premium 64 bit, and as I stated it does not matter what game it is, but if you need examples... league of legends, terraria, awesomnauts, any steam game, age of empires 3, etc...
