Hi Everyone,

I was hoping that someone can help me out.

I recently got a new laptop with Win7 Pro on it. It came with both 32 and 64bit versions. To use the 4gb of RAM I was told I had to install the 64bit version, but now that I have, I can't get anything to run in fullscreen except screen saver. When I try to full screen anything in a media player, I get a black screen with a diagonal of grey colour. Does anyone know what could cause this? I went to update my drivers and it said that I have the most recent ones available, so I was thinking that it was 64bit having a spaz at me and not being compatible with it.

Also, the inbuilt webcam will not work windows live messenger. It finds it when you go to the av settings, but not when you try to use it in a conversation.

*pulls a face*

Any suggestions?

Oh, Wait... I found another post..

I spent ages looking for it and so I posted my own, and THEN I find one that works. I had to turn off the *enable hardware acceleration* function.

I feel slightly blonde now.
