  1. Hi Everybody ;), i have a rather annoying problem for about a month now, i constantly though it would solve itself or something like that but it hasnt yet so im posting it here. The Prob is that after i use any full screen Program/Game that hides my Windows enviorment i get a black screen and my computer totally freezes. the only way to return to windows is to restart the entire computer. this problem is really annoying the hell outta me cuz im constantly moving between games. further more this problem also appears in mid game-play sometimes. for example in My favorite game,World of warcraft i can login correctly because i get a black screen after the "Loading World" screen.

    System Specs:

    OS: WinXP Fully Updated
    Motherboard : GigaByte GA-7S748
    CPU: AMD Athlon XP 3000+
    RAM: 512MB in total (two 256MB) DDR PC 2700
    Chipset: SiS ( i believe its 7012)
    Video Card: Nvidia Geforce 5200FX Fully Updated
    Soundcard: SiS7012 AC'97
