Windows 7: Full Screen Video Closes Unintentionally

Full Screen Video Closes Unintentionally

Hi guys,

I'm having trouble viewing videos in the full screen mode. What happens is after watching for a variable amount of time (usually just a few minutes) the full screen view pops back down to the original view. This happens everywhere from Windows Media Player to Hulu and other flash based videos as well as VLC, etc.

I have the Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family.

I would really appreciate any help you guys could give me and thanks in advance!

Does this happen if you keep waving your mouse from time to time? Check your power settings in the control panel, and the screen saver settings.
