No full screen game works since windows 7

Hi I have a big problem, after we changed from windows XP to windows 7 I can't play any full screen game. Every time I start a game a black screen with loading mouse icon appears and my laptop stops responding so I have to restart it. The games I try to play are all old games that I played when I was with windows XP like Star Craft. My brother also installed windows 7 on his computer but everything works perfectly fine for him. Please someone help me !
