Full Screen Gaming - Full Lockup

Q: Full Screen Gaming - Full Lockup

For some reason, starting this morning, any time I open a game in full screen mode, I get a full freeze. No mouse movement, Ctrl+Alt+Del / Ctrl+Shift+Esc / Alt+F4 / Alt+Tab do nothing, and the ultimate test, toggling capslock doesn't change the light on the keyboard. Only a hard reboot remedies the problem.

I'm convinced it's not a video card issue simply because if I start the same games in windowed mode, they run perfectly fine. I updated to Catalyst 10.10d yesterday, but the problem didn't occur until today, so I'm not entirely sure if they are related. Google's turned up nothing, at any rate, and I don't want to go through the effort of a full driver wipe until I'm sure it's the problem.

Something that troubles me a little: Fallout New Vegas randomly started detecting my Radeon 3870s as a GeForce 7900. It did not do this originally. Fallout 3 and Oblivion still detect it properly, however.

This problem happens in all games I've tried, across multiple engines, including several Source games, several Gamebryo games, and a few other random games. This is not a BSOD issue, it simply freezes with a black screen. My drivers, DirectX and Windows are all completely up to date.

Edit: Forgot to include customary dxdiag info.

Preferred Solution: Full Screen Gaming - Full Lockup

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Full Screen Gaming - Full Lockup

Remove your video drivers, then install a fresh copy. If that doesn't help, please provide these reports even though you're not having BSOD's: http://www.techsupportforum.com/f217...ns-452654.html

Do you know if there is anyway i could play a game without the full screen feature? I want to do other jobs on the side without having to exit full screen so i save time.

A:Gaming without Full Screen

most games have a fullscreen option (unchecking it is the way forward ) if not you could always try changing it in properties (right clcik the .exe ((launcher)) and you can alter it there)

depending on the game though you will loose alot of fps (frames per second) playing in windowed mode , what about alt/tab to minimise the game instead?

Hello all. I am new to the forum and although I made an attempt to standardize this post and avoid inconvenience please excuse any such thing.

I am running XP Home.

I have a GeForce 8800 GTX with drivers downloaded from NVIDIA today and installed after a driver cleaning using driver cleaner pro.

I have an Intel Core 2 Quad 6600 @2.4GHz

I am certain that I am not overheating. My cooling tower is excellent and my motherboard monitors the heat. It's nowhere close to overheating. I'm not overclocking by the way.

Present issue:

I have been running Everquest II on this machine with no problems for about a month. Today it began presenting the BSoD when in full screen mode. The game still runs in a window.


I have scanned for viruses and found none. I have eliminated each of the 43 bits of spyware on my machine using spybot and have immunized with spywareblaster.

Attached you will find my dxdiag, msconfig, activescan text (from the panda activescan) and the zipped content of my minidump folder.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Regards,
James

Hi all,
Been having a few computer troubles, last couple of days. Up until now, I have never had a computer crash since building my machine. Occasionally I've had to force-quit a program, but never random crashes.

I've had 6 in the last day or so, though. And none of them have happened with a BSoD. The last one to happen was while watching a movie. I Ctrl+Alt+Del'd and it got stuck showing a message "preparing security options..." with the time-circle(?), but never progressed past that point.

They all seem to happen at random, regardless of what I do. When playing full-screen games, watching full-screen movies, or even just sitting idling. I've tried updating my MOBO BiOS, my gfx driver, tried taking out and setting the RAM again, and even ran a full-system scan with both anti-virus and with CCleaner.

I'm afraid I'm not sure what I should do.

I tried to upload the files from the SF_Diagnostic_Tool, but got a message saying I didn't have the correct Security Token?

If there's any other information that you require of me, please don't hesitate to ask.

I've combed through Google search results for an answer but haven't found anything that helps. I'm currently running two screens on an NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT and have a few full screen games. Warhammer Dawn of War Dark Crusade works fine, a barrier appears most of the time that prevents the cursor moving to the second screen, so I can hit that one pixel column that activates the scroll over the map.

Half Life 2 also works okay, because the cursor is always centred and moving the mouse moves the screen instead.

However, I pulled out Rise of Nations not too long ago, no barrier. The only way to fix it is to disable the second monitor. Which is a hassle, it's set up with a heap of icons and a few widgets that need moving over first, then moving back when I reenable it.

Oh well, I don't play that game that often. Though we recently got Spore, which has a similar problem. I'm not worried that it can flick over to the other screen, the problem is it won't move back. Which means a minimise of the game then a restore. Or I could go through and disable the second monitor. Blegh.

Is there some sort of program that will force the barrier every time I run a full screen app, or something I can set up that the mouse won't cross?

There's an option through ntune to make sure you dont get those lag and flickers.

I checked to see if it was overheating with a log post (that exceeds the limit of .txt-files, thus I cannot attach it). As far as I can see there is no problem there.

you'll probably need to adjust either your mouse settings (I think there is a workaround for Logitech mice) or else edit a resource file in the game so that it allows the mouse to go out of game without minimizing the game - but I haven't heard of a way to do that thus far.

A:Full lockup on coolish temps

What does the Temp1 sensor measure?

Since you're seeing the graphics card come back to life - I would have to suspect problems with it, despite the results of Furmark. Maybe try another video stress test? http://www.google.com/search?q=video...ient=firefox-a

For new builds - unplug and carefully replug every connection in the case. I had this problem for years!

Double check everything with the video card. Leave the side of the case open and see if that helps. Point a house fan at the video card and see if that helps. When it freezes/shuts down, see if you can see the fan on the video card - did it stop before the shutdown?

After you found the one drive in the RAID array faulty, did you reinstall Windows on the sole remaining drive?

Try these hardware diagnostics:

The only thing that jumps out (to me) is video testing. Since it's a new install and you've updated the drivers, I'd check the video. Use the free video tests at this link: Hardware Diags
Also check the video card to make sure:
- that it has adequate airflow getting to it
- that the cooling fan is working
- that the cooler isn't clogged with dust/dirt
- that the power plug is firmly plugged into the card (if so equipped)

Firstly, I'm running a bug free and competent AMD Phenom II x6 machine with an ATI 6870 and 8 gigs of ram. Hard drives have plenty of space and there aren't any hardware faults. Everything tends to run fine.

Reinstall Silverlight
Uninstall windows update that installed original silverlight
Reinstalled it again
Turned off any custom video settings in the ATI Catalyst
Tried using IE, FireFox (currently use chrome)
Tried increasing amount of space Silverlight can use
Tried turning hardware acceleration on in the Silverlight options

I can't think of anything else. It doesn't matter if the film or TV show is HD or SD, full screen will stutter. My native resolution is 1920x1080, as per, and my refresh rate is 60hz. No clashes there.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A:Full screen applications don't use full screen!

im assuming you have a widescreen monitor, i have this feature on mine, il take a few screenshots with my phone to show what it does. this picture is the scaling options for flat panel monitors:

now, with this enabled, at your monitors default resolution, will appear like this:

now with it set at a resolution that isnt your monitors default will appear like this:

to stop this from happening, simply find out what your default resolution is for your monitor, and set the application resolution to this.

if you cannot find anywhere to set the default resolution, you can have full screen by reading through the manual for the monitor, there will be an option to remove the aspect ratio scaling on the monitor somewhere if you cant set it on windows.

I m using. WMP v. 9 and am tring to watch a SVCD. It runs ok, But when I try and view it in full screen, the screen goes to full screen, but there is only a fairly small window sitting in the middle of the screen. I have viewed the same file on another computer and full screen works fine. Please help.

A:Full Screen not Taking up full screen.

Have you checked the settings on your screen? Not the software settings but the hardware settings. I'm talking about the buttons that are on your screen that you use to adjust it. I doubt that this is the problem but it might be worth checking. Also, you might try searching Microsoft's Knowledge Base for any answers.

Hello, 
I have been looking for verification that if I buy the Dell 24 Gaming Monitor – S2417DG and attach it to my Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 HDMI that I will get full 2560x1440 resolution refresh rate 165 Hz with 1ms response as the Monitor specs are listed.
I can find no information that the HDMI will pass this level of output.
I have talked to Dell tech support and they do say that the HDMI port is connected directly to the  NVIDIA  GeForce GTX 1050T i with 4GB GDDR5 but I also have seen information that HDMI will not support this.
So I am looking for verification on this configuration being compatible/able to output the full capabilities of the video card to the monitor via the on board HDMI output?

A:Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 HDMI Specs/Does HDMI out support full bandwidth for G-SYNC Dell Gaming Monitor – S2417DG

First of all, G-Sync as far as I know requires DisplayPort and will not run on HDMI.  Even if it does, I don't think even HDMI 2.0 has enough bandwidth for 1440p @ 165 Hz.  And even if it does though, all of the Dell systems I've seen have only had HDMI 1.4, which is only enough for 1440p @ 60 Hz.  But even if all of that isn't a problem, does the Inspiron 7567 have ONLY a GeForce GPU, or does it have an Intel GPU plus a GeForce GPU?  If it's the latter, G-Sync will definitely not work because in almost all systems that have both GPUs, only the Intel GPU is directly wired to the display outputs.  If your system has ONLY the GeForce GPU, then G-Sync should work in theory, but again you may have the bandwidth problems I mentioned above.

dear you

i was wondering for those have have an internet with download speed of about 250 kb per sec is there a way to force skype to use it all i mean i can watch hd videos on youtube and cant have a stupid straight video chat on skype i dont use my webcam but i still cant get even pixelated video without it breaking and lagging and eventually dropping, its like download for example, downloading with the browser can be slow but if i use internet download manager, it takes full control of internet speed, full access and leaves nothing to the other programs , can that be done with skype?

me
 

A:Solved: is there anyway to give skype full access to internet with full speed

Youtube buffers video, a live chat isn't buffered.

If your internet speed is 256kb/s you need faster internet service.

See here for more info on internet connection speeds and how to see how much bandwidth Skype is using: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA1417/how-much-bandwidth-does-skype-need

Hello, have been searching the net for an answer to this question with no satisfactory answers.

System details,
Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit
Intel Core 2 Duo 6600 2,4GHz
2GB Ram
500GB Packard Bell External Hard Drive - USB connection

I have a 500GB external hard-drive and Windows Vista is currently telling me it is full. When I check the hard-drive properties in Explorer it also shows up as very close to full. However when I select all folders on the hard-drive and check properties the size is only approx half. i.e 216GB

The drive system is NTFS and I have made sure in "Folder Options/View" that hidden files and folders are shown.

Does anyone have an idea what this could be ?

at this point being this close to a new line of CPU's, the possible performance increase, and the effect on pricing from both sides, I would wait until sept if you can. You might benefit from it greatly.

I've got a hard disk in my laptop partitioned into to two.

After a year of good service, my laptop is now, from time to time during use, displaying 'disk full' type messages when trying to save a file (Word) or unzip a file (Winrar) and things like that.

I can still access files on the disk, just not write to it, although the problem when it is occurring seems to be intermittent.

The disks aren't full and have over 10% free. When I restart Windows the problem goes away.

I'm guessing there is something wrong with the disk?

Any ideas on how to check for errors/problems or solve this?

Thanks.

Howdy,

I am using the following machine with all of the stock hardware:
Samsung NP-RF510
Access Denied

-exception is that the stock chipset was replaced due to a malfunction

I have been experiencing the following problem for some time:
When playing computer games the screen will go black and the computer will lock up. Whatever sound file that was being played will loop until the computer shuts down (either it times out or I press the power button). The computer ONLY freezes up during games. I have tested the card with 3DMark, leaving it running for hours without issue.

I have attempted the following solutions:
1) Updated all drivers
2) Rolled back graphics drivers
3) Improved cooling (laptop fan)

Thank you to anyone who helps in advance. You all are the best folks on the internet.

A:Hard drive full when not full?

When I bring up 'computer" (Windows + E) I've noticed that the bar graph showing how relatively full an external hard drive is is colored blue-green. But whenever there is less than 10 percent of the drive space free that bar turns red.

That made some sense for a drive with a few hundred gigabytes (although I don't understand the technical reasons) because I assume there needs to be a minimum amount of free space for the system to be able to do whatever manipulation of those files might be required, such as defragmenting the drive (something I've never done in decades).

However with a 4 terabyte drive the system says it is over 90 percent full when there is still over 350 gigabytes still available. That's a huge amount of space, as big as some drive C's on some computers, so I've been ignoring the red bar, but still keeping an eye on those hard drives that have it.

Does anyone have information on how much space should really be left unused on a hard drive? I hate to overfill a drive, yet also don't see the point in pulling a drive for storage with 200 or 300 gigabytes still available on it. Any advice (with sound reasons) appreciated.

A:How full is too full for a hard drive?

Defrag is done automatically when the PC is idle in Windows 7, you can also start it manually of course.

There is a tutorial or some such I remember seeing here to adjust when the bar turns red. I will try to find it.

Edit: Here it is low disc space partition color

It is not exactly setting the %, but disabling the coloring all together though. Can't find an exact answer to your question though. See if you will like the above solution.

Hi. When running IE8 in a full screen, you don't see the clock (lower left hand corner), and obviously you can't see the date. Is there a way, or a clock, to be there in Full-Screen secession?? Thank You

A:Full Screen IE 8

Hello Ilya,

When you are in F11 full screen mode, you can press the Windows key to temporarily see the clock, but there is no way to have the clock always there in F11 full screen mode.

To have the clock there, you would need to maximize the IE8 window instead of using F11 mode.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
