It plays sound for a few seconds afterward but then becomes unresponsive to the power button and keyboard so I have to turn the psu off.

My computer has a problem with crashing while playing a video in full screen. When it crashes the screen turns black while the speakers give out a buzzing noise. Everything is unresposive the only solution is to turn it off with the power button. It happens in any full screen video online or offline and even visualizations from windows media player and iTunes, but only in full screen. I don't think it's overheating either because sometimes it takes 30 mins to crash and other times it will crash immediately when put in full screen. *I've tried setting it back to factory settings thus reinstalling windows. *All the directx features are working with no reported problem there.*
I don't think it's a memory issue in the computer, as my specs are:
Windows 7 64-bit
Processor: intel core i5 3.20 GHz
Ram: 8 GB
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 220

If I play a video from ANY source, online or on any player, the video automatically goes full-screen and I am unable to minimize it unless I restart the computer.

I just need to know what causes this in the first place so I can watch a video without it going to full-screen mode on its own. I know there's a setting somewhere, I just can't find it. No button combinations on the keyboard minimize the picture.

There are no viruses or spyware. I'm running Windows XP SP2.

My monitor doesn't seem to support 720p or 1080p HD videos on youtube when full screen. I have an HP 2009m monitor and it seems pretty new.

Do you think this is a monitor driver issue or graphics card, or maybe something else?

Videos work fine when in regular dimensions, but when I click fullscreen it is either black, or the video freezes. The audio works fine.

I cannot right click on the video.

I have tried this both in chrome and safari, and on multiple websites (Youtube, vidxden, etc)

A:Cannot play videos in full screen

If right-click gives you a context-menu when video is playing at the default size:

Click Settings in the context menu.
The Adobe Flash Player Settings screen will open.
Click on the icon at the bottom-left of the Adobe Flash Player Settings window to open the Display panel.

Remove the tick from Enable hardware acceleration.
Click 'Close' to close the display panel.

Actually it lags any time I make the player bigger. So I have to keep it small or else it lags basically...

It does it on vlc, windows media, and quicktime (all I have.)

Today I downloaded windows media encoder to convert an avi to wmv to watch on my xbox 360, and that made me install different codecs. At first I thought that could've been the problem, but then I remembered that the videos have been doing that for the past 2 or 3 days now.

Any idea why its doing this to me?

So I've had this computer since September and have not been having any issues until I updated to Windows 7 from Vista. Everything works fine and dandy until I decide to watch a video in full screen mode. It is the worst when watching online videos. Once the computer crashes the screen goes blank and all sound cuts out. The only way to restore the computer is to force it off. For online videos this happens in a few minutes or sometimes a few seconds and for downloaded videos this happens after a little longer, usually around thirty minutes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled all of the graphics and sound drivers and have run hard ware diagnostics on everything repeatedly. Any ideas? Also I do play very taxing games on this computer but I have never had any such issue.

I'm having a serious problem when trying to watch videos in full scream. When in full screen, the videos get slow, lagging in various scenes, sometimes with cuts in the audio too.

My config is Sempron 2600+, 1.5gb ram and Geforce 5500 256MB 128 bits. Display 22", 1680x1050 resolution. I'm using nvidia beta driver for Windows 7 (it seems to be the same driver used for Windows Vista, don't know).

I tried lots of codecs and players, nothing works. Windows Media Player and Media Player classic are working almost perfectly than any other players, but I really hate WMP.

I tried to change the settings in nVidia Control Panel, but I can't find the nvidia control panel, it's not in the right button menu.

I installed the game Marvel Ultimate Alliance and it's slow too, but I have all the requirements to play it smoothly.

I'm using build 7600.

How can I solve this?

A:Full screen videos and games lagging

If you are still using the Win 7 default display drivers you might want to look in the Nvidia driver page for updated drivers for your system.

The default Win7 Nvidia drivers do not install the Nvidia control panel.

A:Videos lagout when another program is open full screen

A workaround is to set your game to use Windows 7 compatibility mode... its to do with the way priority is handled from what I have heard. First though make sure your graphics drivers are 100% up to date, a lot of people who reported this back in RTM said that it is fixed now, that could have been due to patches or graphics card drivers but for a lot it was resolved.
Aside that, the compatibility thing has been reported as a good solution (little annoying needing to set it on every game you play though, so not ideal)

I was running the 12.10 drivers at the time. Now I installed the beta and haven't played any games yet. But I wanted to see what caused it.

Both .dmp files come with Memory_Management 1a

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes. *Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot. *If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot. *If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

A workaround is to set your game to use Windows 7 compatibility mode... its to do with the way priority is handled from what I have heard. First though make sure your graphics drivers are 100% up to date, a lot of people who reported this back in RTM said that it is fixed now, that could have been due to patches or graphics card drivers but for a lot it was resolved.
Aside that, the compatibility thing has been reported as a good solution (little annoying needing to set it on every game you play though, so not ideal)

Earlier yesterday, I had received a blue screen error while watching videos on Netflix while
in full screen view. Then just a few hours ago, the same error occurred again while I was watching a video on Youtube during full screen. I could hear ticking noises in my hard drive usually before or after this issue takes place. Here is the message below that was showing:


"STOP: 0x00000077 (0xC000009C, 0xC000009C, 0x00000000, 0x086C6000)"

I'm running Windows XP, SP 3, Dell PC, Model: Dimension 2400 using Google Chrome. I would provide more info from my minidumps, but they won't show up for some reason when I'm trying to attach them.

This is a Pavillion x360 Convertable 15-bk010nr. Using Windows 10 64 bit.When reading websites and a video is available, all I see is a black screen (most of the time) with a ?handle? at the bottom center. Sometimes I will see a photo with a play arrow, but that is rare. If I click play, it turns black. If I can get the video to start playing, I can hear it, but can't see the video unless I blindly click in the area where the full screen button should be and get it to open in full screen mode. How can I get these videos to play normally in the website without having to go full screen? This is a screenshot of a video that is playing - I can hear it, but can't see it. Thank you for your assistance.

When viewing videos on YouTube, Facebook or other sites, I can not expand these videos to full screen. When I attempt to do so, the audio continues to play, but the screen goes black. However, when I hit the esc key to minimize, sometimes I see a flash of the full screen just before it reduces back to the small player. This is a new problem, and seemed to happen recently, about the same time as some updates that were installed. Additionally, I am also seeing videos not immediately fully loaded in the smaller players on Facebook. It takes much more time for them to be completely visible (the screen shows 50% of the video visible, but 50% black/trying to load). I have an NVIDIA Quadro M1000M and an Intel HD Graphics P530  Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

I have already tried updating my graphics driver. It said that it was up to date

I'm not sure if this is related, but I used to get a message when I turned on my laptop saying:
WARNING The Catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics adapter. Please update your AMD graphics driver, or enable your AMD adapter using the Displays Manager.

so... I uninstalled the AMD

My PC also doesn't wake from sleep when I close the lid of the laptop. Is this connected to the other issues I'm having?

A:I am having a problem with video when I watch videos in full screen

Tearing would typically be a video driver issue. Are you using the latest driver version available from the laptop manufacturer? It's only recommended to use the laptop manufacturers drivers. You may need to uninstall the drivers, reboot, and then install the latest version again.

Most laptops uses a switch to determine lid position I believe. So it could be an actual hardware fault, or a software issue.

Hi! I've been navigating the forums for a while now but I finally found myself in the need of creating a thread. I recently made a fresh install of windows on my PC, but I've noticed that I keep getting BSOD's every now and then when I exit a game or a video in full screen. I't not always but it's getting annoying. I re installed the Graphics cards drivers and the Antivirus as one post suggested but I just got another BSOD. I get the message:

Hey, my computer has been blue screening for quite sometime now, if I were to estimate I would say around 8 months and I get 1-2 blue screen every month I would have to say. I have formatted my computer and re-installed windows around 1-2 months ago to check if it would fix the problem but to no avail. I would generally get these blue screens when I would be playing a full screen game but also it sometimes happens when I would play video games in windowed mode as well. Also, sometimes it would occur when I would full screen or escape a full screen YouTube video.

I have tried updating my video driver as well as explained before formatting my hard drive and re-installing Windows 7 Ultimate x64 but it has still not resolved the issue. I'll attach the dump files and would thank you in advance for any help given.

This never happened before until recently, my screensaver would start while I am watching movies under full screen in WMP, and i am not sure what i did to trigger this. I made sure that the "allow screen saver during playback" setting in WMP is unchecked, and my battery plan for my laptop is set to 'balanced'. I'd rather not have to change my screensaver settings everytime i watch a movie or a show. Any help please?

A:Screensaver starts while watching videos in WiMP under full screen

OK i found out how it happened

Screensaver kicked in while i watched videos in WMP under full screen because I installed a newer version of my Video Card driver. After I reinstalled my driver back to the default version that came with my laptop....movies no longer get interrupted by the screensaver. But obviously newer drivers are important too, so i have yet to figure out how to have latest version driver and not have this screensaver issue.

Hope this info helps people who have the same problem.

So I thought it has something to do with the drivers but I have reinstalled the drivers a million times... I am having trouble reinstalling my Sound driver though, I keep getting an error when I try to reinstall it and I don't know how to uninstall it....

Whenever i try to watch a video on youtube or dailymotion via full screen my video consistently exits full screen after 20-30 seconds of play. This happens every time without fail and happens again when i re activate full screen mode.

Initially i thought the problem was with my flash player but files played via full screen via windows media player seem to do the exact same thing though they seem to take a bit longer, about 60-80 seconds before they exit full screen mode?

Ive been fiddleing around for ages and i can't remedy the problem so if anyone out there can help me i would be very much appreciative.

my kids/wife play those online games a lot.... everytime i get on computer i have to go thru all kinda hopps to get back to my desktop cause it takes up the entire screen, i cant get to the start button, taskbar, desktop, nothing.... every once in awhile hitting the "Windows" key works, but not often...
is there a way to eliminate full screen modes? make it where all games are just a regular window like all other software?


A:can FULL SCREEN MODE be stopped for online games??

To get back to the desktop from nearly any fullscreen game, press and hold down "Alt", press "Tab", and then release both keys. (this is called doing an Alt-Tab). All this does is task-switch to the next runing user application in the Windows Taskbar. If the game is the only application running in the taskbar, then you just get back to the desktop. Pressing the Windows-logo Key on the keyboard can also effectyively do the same thing.
The behavior of this function varries slightly from game to game and machine to machine, so you may see a pause or a delay as the system mode-switches from the screen resolution that the game was running at to the screen resolution that the windows desktop is set to. Some games will pause when the Alt-Tab function is called, but usualy the game will simply be running in the background when you are Alt-Tabed to the desktop.

There is no way for you to universaly make all CD-ROM games that run on the MS Windows operating system run only in "Windowed mode" (as opposed to full-screen mode). You would have to go and find out if and how you can get each individual game to run in Windowed mode, and then make the nessisary changes for each game. Even if you did that, a game would likely default to full-screen mode the next time you started one, and frankly I doubt that the games would even have a windowed mode. Most of the games released in the last five years were full-screen only.

Why don't you just get a second PC for yourself and tell the rest of the family it's for your job? Then you can lock them out of it with a password and they can go use the old one.

Hi I seem to be getting frequent BSODs when streaming videos on youtube or when using other streaming video players if I have them fullscreen. In addition, when I close the game Civilization 5 my computer will often crash to a BSOD.

When I checked bluescreenview there was only one minidump summary, however, I have had probably 20 BSODs in the past week. I'm unsure how many summaries are included in the attached minidump files.

I'm running 64 bit 7 with 4GB ram, an Intel Quad core Q9550 cpu running at 2.83 GHz, GPU is a Nvidia Geforce GTS 250 (up to date) and I use Microsoft Security Essentials as an Antivirus. I have a 700 Watt psu, with a single hard drive at about 60% capacity.

I've been getting BSODs frequently for the past few months but much more frequently lately. Thank you for any and all help, and please let me know if more information is required.


A:BSODs when watching streaming full screen videos and closing Civ5

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol 120% software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions).
Please uninstall the programs, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

Some free alternatives (I don't use them, so I can't comment on them)

MagicISO - Convert BIN to ISO, Create, Edit, Burn, Extract ISO file, ISO/BIN converter/extractor/editor

I'd suggest updating your network drivers from the manufacturer's website also. They date from 2009, so they may be troublesome.

Please post back if this doesn't stop the BSOD's - there's 2 ways that we can go (either running Driver Verifier or hardware diagnostics).

Hi i'm new here gotta say nice and organized forum!

Problem started week ago, on windows 7 ultimate 32 bit. screen crashed (black) followed by display driver has crashed and recovered notice while being on the internet chrome/ie/firefox all of them, watching videos either on youtube or mpc.

Did complete re format, upgraded to windows 7 ultimate 64 bit (have 4gb ram).
Got worse, same thing but now followed by BSOD. Doesn't seem to happen when i play games.

Things iv'e tried so far:

- Update graphic drivers to both last stable version and beta, including erasing them completely, using driver sweeper and installing again.
- Uninstalling and getting older version of Flash
- Disable hardware acceleration on flash
- Checked processor temp and graphic card temps everything is normal, nothing overheats, never overclocked


A:Screen tears followed by BSOD playing videos, youtube, online browsing


Unfortunately the installation is non-genuine.
The Key is that of an Acer/Gateway/Packard Bell pre-installed computer - and the motherboard is a retail one by Gigabyte.

The best course of action is to:Purchase a legitimate Windows 7 licence.
Format the HDD.
Reinstall Windows and activate.

Friends don't let friends take vertical videos. Our brains and eyes are wired for widescreen. And yet, in this age of ubiquitous smartphone screens, it happens all the time. There's good news today if you're one of those people. Android...

A:Android accepts defeat, will now show vertical YouTube videos full screen


Honestly whoever originally made the decision to only allow video to be viewed in widescreen format in full screen mode was a bone head move, thanks captain Dic.

"So vertical video makers rejoice. In fact, we should all celebrate. Although the orientation will still be annoying for people watching on laptops, monitors, and TVs, at least Android smartphone users won't have to suffer innecesarily. There's no word yet on when or if the update is coming to iOS."

The added screen real estate more than makes up for the lack of proper orientation, maybe flip your laptop on its side and change it's screen setting to portrait if it really bothers you. But when trying to watch on an already small screen it just doesn't make sense for it to force you to watch with black bars.

So, for starters:
- download the latest version of the video and audio drivers for your system.
- uninstall the current video and audio drivers through Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program.
- install the downloaded drivers.
- reboot and wait for another BSOD :0)

If this doesn't fix it, you'll have to navigate to C:\Windows\Minidump, zip up the contents of that folder and upload it with your next post.

Hi guys,

I have a really annoying problem... I have a dual screen set up on my desktop pc, and when I open a video in any media player and move it to my secondary monitor, it automatically plays full screen on my primary monitor as well!!

It's been going on for a while now, but just thought I'd actually see if anyone can help me!

I'm running win xp pro sp 3 and my video card is ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro... does that help?

Anyway, is there a setting somewhere that I need to address??

please help!


A:Playing videos on second monitor automatically plays full screen on primary monitor

Have you tried installing the lastest drivers? And is the second monitor spanned or cloned? I don't know here to tell you to look as I'm an nVidia guy...haven't used ATI in years.

I have a Compaq widescreen laptop.

But I cannot put videos on full screen.

If I'm watching a video on, for example, You Tube, and I click the button to put the video in full screen mode, it just creates a blank black screen. I can't see anything or do anything and the only way to exit this set up is to press ESC on my keyboard.

Is there a way I can change the settings or something so that I can watch videos in full screen on my widescreen laptop?

Thanks in advance anyone who can help!

I keep getting a blue screen when i play music from my itunes, or when i play videos or music files online. The error message is something like "kernel page instack error" or something to that affect. It doesnt happen when i play movies from my windows media player or vlc player. I think it has something to do with my drivers, but i really dont know. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

Hello.. does anybody knows how to run ms-dos (full screen) in windows vista?

Relevancy 57.19%

I have a number of apps that won't fill the screen when run in 'full-screen' mode on my Vista laptop. They fill the screen on my XP laptop so I'm assuming it's a Vista issue (no response from publishers' help, yet) but it could be hardware or driver. But other apps run fine-and none of the apps for which I've found Vista updates (or specific claims of Vista compatibility) have this problem-so it sounds like an issue with Vista. (There is a slight difference in screen resolutions-the XP laptop runs at 1280x768, the Vista at 1280x800. could this be the issue? But the apps are more short horizontally than verictally-and the horizontal resolution is the same.)

This seems to be a common problem this week (there's a similar post below). Have you tried the following: Take your cursor and place it on one of the 4 edges of the window, and manually drag it out to the edge of your screen. Do the same thing for each of the other 3 edges. When you're finished, the window should be the full size of the screen. Shut down, re-boot, and if necessary, shut down and re-boot again. Vista should "remember" the setting after the 1st time, but sometimes it takes a couple of attempts to get it to work.

Identify what network card you are using and then get the latest drivers for it.

If this do not work do the same for your motherboard, and also be sure you download and install the latest drivers for your graphics card (not using any cd that came with it).

If you are overclocking anything try not to.

Just to rule out the problem test your memory ->

The hotfix I found was this one: - and it seems its not excactly the problem you're having since you're experiencing bsod and the hotfix mentions only a 15sec delay of some sort.

Also be sure you're on the latest Service Pack level for your OS.

Verify that you do not have more than one firewall/antivirus program. Also, try to disable your firewall/antivirus to check if that helps.

If you are connected by wireless, try wired and vice versa (to see if it works with one of them, and not the other)

Check your Network Connection Properties and try to disable any items you do not need (like QoS, Low-level network analyzers etc.)

Hi, first of all, sorry if this is in the wrong section!

My problem is fairly simple, but infuriating! I have two videos on my harddrive which play to a point but just stop at the same point everytime. The progress bar continues till the end of where the video is supposed to stop, but the image just freezes.

I'm running Windows 7, the first video is a .wmv file which is 7 odd mins long and stops about the 4 mark, and the second is a .avi file which is an hour or so long and finishes at the 35 mins mark. Again, the progress bar continues to the end but the image is frozen.

I've tried converting them to different file types, but it has done nothing of use.

Is there ANYONE who can suggest any solutions as I have googled and googled for days without luck.
