Second display problem

Hi, I have issue with second display in Windows 7. In Windows XP I could watch movie in full screen on my TV, connected as second display and play games in primary display simultaneously.

In Win 7 second display goes black and sound from movie disappeared immediately after game going full screen

I use "Extend these displays" configuration, my monitor is primary display. Latest NVIDIA drivers installed.
