Problems changing resolutions in Games
Posted on 2003-11-25
I am running on an Athlon 2800+, Win XP Pro (build 2600, not SP1) with a MSI VGA card FX5600. Everything works perfect about changing resolutions and color depth. Because of my 19'' monitor I decided to keep 1152X864X32 resolution. The problem is that when I try to play a game in a resolution other than 1152X864, the game starts only as an icon and text (minimized) on the taskbar. When I click on it, it is maximizing for seconds as black screen and then again on the taskbar. When I managed with some tricky ways to arrange the resolution of the game at 1152X864 it works fine. But when I installed FIFA2004 which doesn't support this resolution I simply cannot run the game. I hear sounds or music but the application is minimized on the taskbar. I do have the latest drivers from MSI, I even tried the latest generic drivers from NVIDIA with no results. I have installed directX9.0b (tests show that direct3D works allright). I also disabled from the mainboard BIOS the AGP8X but still the same thing with AGP4X. I don't know what else to try. I really need help...
