Hello to everyone!
I'm glad to be new member of this forum.

I have a problem regarding using applications expecially games. The problem is this: When install the game and run it, it starts to work (black screen when loading) and then it suddenly returns to windows desktop, but the app does not cloase. When I click on it in taskbar it reloades, but it keeps jumping in desktop. Does anyone have any idea, what could that be?

Although I do not play many games, it is getting on my nervers. Please help me.

Have a nice day!

It could be a lot of things but what comes to my mind:

  • Incorrect video drivers
  • Conflict with software firewall
  • Conflict with virus or spyware (keep updating and running the antivirus!)
  • Faulty memory

    Yes, but why it sometimes work, sometimes not?
    The drivers are OK, firewall is disabled, memmory was tested...

    Like I said, if it does not work today, it will start working after 2 hours. I had the same problem with two of my copmuters.
