Screen Problems on Application LoadLocked
I am having some issues when I try and start certain applications on my computer. Whenever I try and start certain applications such as games like Empire Earth and Superpower, my computer will go through the process of switching to the application and begin to load the program. Then it will switch back to windows screen and not let the game display. The game will appear on the task bar and I can select it to make it the active application, it will then try and bring it back onto the screen.But every time it happens, it just flips back to the windows desktop screen. I am currently running windows XP, however it was doing the same thing on Windows 2000 when I had that installed. Here are the system specs.
Motherboard : Gigabyte
Memory : 512mb DDR
Video Card : ATI Radeon 7500
HD : WD 120GB – Master & IBM 60GB – Slave
Drives : DVD & CDRW
Monitor : Viewsonic G90mb
I have updated all the drivers on the computer to the newest available versions. Also I tried swapping out the video card with another one that I had (ATI RADEON 7200). The same thing happens with both cards. Could this possibly be a Monitor issue? All help is greatly appreciated.
Please help, all I want to do after a long day is play some games :)!!!
