Please can someone help me to restore the Full Screen view on my monitor? Windows XP.

When I click on any Full Screen or Expand symbol to see a video in larger format, the screen simply goes blank white. I can still hear the video, but can only view the small version. I have to press Escape key to return to the original small version.

I have done all the usual Restore/Defrag/Malware scan etc and am at a loss what to do now. Please help?

If this happens when looking at videos on the internet here is a Quick fix:

1. Right-click in the standard youtube video window (non-full screen).
2. Choose 'Settings...' from the Flash Player's pop-up menu.
3. Uncheck the 'Enable Hardware Acceleration'
4. Click 'Close'.

Full-screen should now hopefully work......
