Windows 7: Programs load but land in the taskbar until change to lower resolution

Programs load but land in the taskbar until change to lower resolution

Okay - the title is a bit strange.

It's like this: I open a program/game/whatever fullscreen.
And the programs loads, opens - and minimize to the taskbar.
I can klick on the icon again and again - it will be minimized over and over again.
The program then shows like 0.5sec of going on - and my desktop is shown again.

I use Win7 Enterprise x64 on that Laptop.
Some programs (so as "BlobbyVolley)" need a resolution of 640x480 - and my monitor cannot show it.

There is no problem with my Desktop-PC with Win7 Home Premium x63 - it opens every program. Without changing the resolution of the screen by myself. Then there are many pixels - but I don't care.

So - I hope, I could make myself clear.
If not - just ask. I am waiting for your questions and solutions

Kind regards

I know exactly what you're referring to. This used to always happen to me with Battle Field 3 - and some other full screen games. To fix this, I would restart my computer and the first thing I would do is open my game. (it would actually open) Then, I would set my game to "open in window," then once it started up I could choose to put it back in full screen.

This really isn't the most efficient solution but it worked for me. You may be able to get a better reply. :P
