Windows 7: Game minimizes and opens display settings

31 May 2012   #1

Windows vista 64bit
Game minimizes and opens display settings

I installed the latest update for my graphics card and i tried opening a game and when it starts it auto minimizes and opens personalization>display settings and shows me a specific resolution different from my 1440x990 depending on game so i click ok for the game but when i maximize it just opens up again after a few tries it does work but during play if i minimize i can not maximize again and have to end task from task manager and all my game data not saved is lost.

Try reinstalling your graphics card. Mine does this sometimes.

If that doesn't work then reinstall your game.
