    Lately for some reason, when I view videos online, when I click on "full screen" all I get is a blank white screen. I'm using IE8 w/XP sp3. If I hit "escape", it will exit and go back to the smaller screen just as it normally would. It does this with any online video, Youtube, news videos, what have you, but does not do that when viewing videos offline. I tried the latest FF, it does not have that problem. Please do not tell me to just switch to FF, I want to fix this problem with IE.

    Update: It also goes white when I try to go full screen while viewing slide shows in Photobucket.

    My best guess is that the things you are trying to view require the latest versions of programs like adobe, java, flash player, or quick time. Make sure that you're updated with the latest software. I'm not exactly a tech guru, so go easy on me if what I just said is stoopid

    Seems to be Nvidia drivers, need newer version (2006, for my particular Nvidia card and machine). Now works, no white screen w. full screen video. If you've updated to Flash 10.1 recently, then might need new Nvidia drivers.
