    Hi all,
    I have an unusual problem running games specifically on my windows vista machine, which has arisen in the last month or so. Basically whenever I run games, the program never seems to run in full screen mode as games generally do. I do not know how this happened but I think I may have accidentally enabled it through a keyboard shortvut. Beyond that, I am not sure.

    This problem only seems to effect specifically games programs which I find unusual. The game itself seems to dictate how much of the screen is black or not (This is hard to describe with no linking or pics allowed for my post count). Other programs such as web browsers, media players, word processors, etc seem to run fine, as does the OS when not running games.

    I am wondering if anyone has a solution for this problem. I would appreciate any responses. I have found out that the problem is not the Alt + Enter shortcut based on forum feedback and testing.

    Specs:
    ASUS F3S Notebook
    Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1 32 bit
    Intel Core 2 Duo CPU @ 2.00GHz
    2.00 GB RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce 8400M G Video Card
