First off if this is the wrong place for this topic i am sorry.

Anyway my problem is when ever i go into a game that is full screen like World of WarCraft or any other game that does when i exit my entire screen stays black and will not go back to normal and i have to restart. All i see when i exit the game is my mouse and it can only go so far on the screen. One of my friend recommended i update the drivers so i went to the intel site and found the driver stuff for my card i download it and i get an error saying its not for my system or something. My vid card isn't the best its Intel® 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family [Display adapter] (2x). I also have a old monitor thats probly 4/5 years old and its missing one prong thing from the plug that hooks to the tower i don't know if that is effecting it but everything is fine until i try to exit any full screen games.

Any help would be great thanks :thumbsup:
I can only learn what i want to learn.

You may need to adjust the refresh rate. You can do that by going to Control Panel>Display>Settings> then click the Advanced button, then click on the Monitor tab.

Are you talking about the power plug missing a prong or are you talking about the end of the monitor plug, that has 12 or so pins in them?

If you're talking about the power plug, that wouldn't be your problem.

If you're talking about the other cable on your monitor, are you sure a pin or such is broken? Monitors look like pins are missing from them. Different types of monitors have different amounts of pins. But if you know for sure a pin is broken, then yes... that can be the cause of your problem.
