Okay so, this computer is literally brand new, less than a month, and it replaced the old 5 year computer/ But for some reasons, the games that works on that computer, new or old from warcraft 3 to fallout 3 does not seem to work on this brand new one. Everytime i launch a game that goes into full screen mode theres like a 66% chance the monitor will just go into Power Saving Mode and rebooting the computer seems to be the only way out. Why is that? I know the video card is better than the old computer for sure... here are the specs.
