Hi everyone. :trumpet:

Okay, I'm having a problem that is really getting on my nerves and I can't seem to find the answer anywhere.

Basically, when I run certain games that go into full screen, it goes into it for literally a second or two, then it automatically minimizes back to the desktop. If I then click the game on the taskbar, it does the same again.

This problem is really getting on my nerves, could anyone please help me out? :flowers:

Thanks very much. :thumbsup:

Try starting the computer in diagnostic mode and see if the game still minimizes.

That happens to me sometimes too. However, when I click a blank spot on the desktop to deselect anything that was selected, it usually doesn't happen.

I think many times it's my instant messenger program too, Trillian.

a few of my games have been behaving like this over the past few days too. You running MSN messenger? if you are, exit out of it and see if they stop minimizing....
