I am running windows XP and For some reason i can not play video files in WMP10 in fullscreen mode, when i try the screen goes black for a second and then back to the size i had it, i have no problem with real player or divx player, they go to fullscreen when i select it only WMP is a problem, any ideas?

Click tools, options, performance to check the setting for video acceleration, click advanced to check the full screen switch setting, click apply and restart the player
