Microsoft Games not opening, video not playing, other connected issues
My HDD died, so I opted for a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional on the new HDD. I reinstalled all my programs and drivers and such. But I've had the same problem ever since:
Sometimes, randomly, when I start my computer, these things happen all at once:
I went through and updated all my drivers, including the graphics drivers and updated Radeon Catalyst Control Center.
I've looked online for solutions but found no problems like mine.
Any help would be much appreciated!
Another issue that I just remembered:
When on youtube or other streaming media sites (doesn't matter which player is being used) if I try to go fullscreen, it turns the screen black and opens a new tab called Adobe Flash Player. But this "tab" is just transparent and nothing displays. The sound still displays fine though. I also can't do anything. Everywhere I click, it just stops/plays the sound (as if it was in fullscreen). I have to hit Windows+tab or ctrl+alt+delete to get back to regular view.
Found another thing affected. I went to check my Windows Experience Index score and it said there is no information available; you haven't run the test yet. But I have multiple times. So I go to run it and nothing happened. I tried several times but had no response.
