I had a problem a while back in which a game would only run in windowed mode. Whenever I switched to full screen the application would stay minimized. The game was Asheron's Call. Not a very hardware stressful game. Link to the post here: http://www.geekstogo...or-t151121.html
. This was eventually fixed with the help of tech support for the game by deleting the "user.ini" settings file from my documents (which apparently didn't delete during uninstall). Now that problem is back for that game and deleting the user.ini failed to work this time. I plan to get in contact with tech support today about this issue.
I'm posting here because it just happened to another game, Neverwinter Nights 2. This is making me think that it is a hardware problem. My CPU runs a little hot (52-58C) despite all my efforts. I have plans to get a 120mm cooler to hopefully drop it a bit more but I am told that p4s just run hot. Suggestions anyone?
Dxdiag log is attached.
