Evertime i go to play a game b4 it even loads it minimizes to the taskbar, and the only way to get it bk is ctrl alt and delete clikcon the game an clikc switch, however i miss out all the movies b4 hand. i ran the dxdiag, and it says "u cancled the test by pressin a key....which i didnt....the keyboard has the standard microsoft ps/2 drivers in, i have uninstalled them an put them bk in and i have tried 4 different keyboards in but...again same problem...also i went onto msconfig and disabled everything starting up....again the same problem, the only time the games dont minimize is after 3 restarts of the computer? it always works on the 3rd time......What going on?

Pls Help

the switch thing you told about doesnt work on my pc. I never have the problem of shutdown and restart youre talking bout. And the turn off and back on doesnt work on my pc. So its worse here at my pc. Im totally unable to play any games except for solitaire :(
