When I close a game that's running full screen from the game (such as oblivion, SC, WC3, FEAR), my screen either goes black except the mouse, or displays what I shuold be seeing, but it's just an image. To get this to go away I have to open outlook wiht my keyboard (buttons on top) and then close it. This gets rid of the "fake" desktop on one screen, then I have to open task manager and move it around my screen to get the rest of the fake off. I have the latest drivers for my card. Has anyone else ever had to deal with this? How do I fix it? Thanks.

Christ, I've been needing too much tech support lately...

If I try to click on the "fake" desktop nothing happens.

I have no viruses. I can identify each of my running processes, and I recently ran scans.

Howard this is a pretty average error, the game wasn't meant to be minimized in the middle of play so it leaves a mirroring of the application on the desktop. I doubt there is any real way to fix it permanently, not that it should be that annoying :-P.

No it hapens when I exit the game, minimizing is just fine. But if I minimize and close, same thing happens.

Happens to me sometimes, but hasn't happened in a while. I put my comp in standby and then brought it back and it would go back. It is quite annoying though.

Eh, it is probaly just a normal glitch. Especially with older games.

I was wondering how long it would take for him to get on Mod Preview or posting disabled...

Happens with Oblivion, FEAR, and everything else.

Erm, I'm giong to say there is no real way to help with this issue. This is something that has happened forever with Windows based operating systems. Just a problem with having a fully graphical operating system =\. Sorry I couldn't help you.

Aka... This is what he alredy has done. Updating drivers wont do anything. Go welcome newcomers.

I'm not sure if the problem is exactly the same, but I have something like it sometimes.

What I do is use the Windows+L key combination which quickly logs you off (Switch User) and then I just log back on. It's fast and it fixes it.

I just open outlook and move it around.

And Akazukin, you're a tard. Seriously, you know nothing, never try and help someone with technology. You once said you formated RAM for a company.

I suppose I'll just be stuck doing outlook junk. >.<
