This isn't as bad as the subject may relay, but it is a pain in the bum. I built a system for my friend, using XP professional and the latest drivers for all his hardware (save the motherboard drivers). Here's his system: Abit KG7 + Athlon 1.4ghz 266fsb 512mb Crucial DDR PC2100 memory Geforce3 Ti200 (MSI) (23.12 currently, 23.11 gave same problem) Maxtor 40gb 7200rpm HD ATA100 SB Live! 5.1 Linksys 10/100 NIC (nc100) Plextor 16x10x40x CDRW Pioneer 16X DVD-ROM I'm sure the problem has been adressed by now, but it seems whenever he exits Counter-Strike (I've heard of similar probs with Diablo 2) the resolution change back to his desktop resolution fails, and the video card basically takes a crap. I can only assume it's a Video problem because from what I see the resolution doesn't change back from 64x480 very well, and the video freezes, while any programs running in background will continue un-phased. The only lead I've heard is that it's the 23.x detonator drivers and XP, and that I should switch his to any pre-23.xx detonators. Anyone having this same problem, or know the solution?
