I am running Windows XP SP2 and every time I try and play a full screen game it plays for a few seconds then it kicks me out to the desk top. I used to be able to play these games and I have no idea what might have changed to cause this. I will say that I always have American Online running in the background as well as AIM, and Weather Bug. Any advice would be greatly appriciated.

what are your system specs (specifically your vidoe card?)

what games are you playing? (if they are old, a high resolution/ 32-color mode may not be supported)

what is your desktop resolution?
