    Hello to all. I'm running Win XP Pro and I just recently started having some display problems with a few programs. I haven't added any new hardware or software recently. My problem is this. Some of my games and other programs have an option to go to the full screen mode. However, every time I attempt to do so with any of these programs, Windows XP immediately shuts down and my computer reboots. I can use all of these programs in the windowed mode with no problem. I thought that maybe my DirectX needed updating so I did so. That didn't fix anything at all. I've run diagnostics on my video hardware and DirectX and it tests fine. Does anyone here have any ideas as to what the problem with the full screen mode might be? Any advice and help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.
