I have a Dell Inspiron 8200 LapTop. I recently had a HD crash, and replaced it with a Toshiba Ultra Quiet 40GB drive. I installed it, formatted, and installed Windows XP, and updated everything through SP2. Everything works fine EXCEPT when I try to play games (by this I mean anything from Star Craft to Call of Duty, Age of Empires etc, all worked just fine before). The video card is an Nvidia Geforce 2 GO. When I attempt to start, the display immediately shrinks to about a 6"x6" box. As soon as I exit, everything returns to normal (size). I have tried both the drivers from the Nvidia website, as well as the drivers on my Dell installation CD, and both do the same thing. I have also tried running DxDiag, which says everything is fine. Anyone have any ideas, or heard of something similar?
