Assassins Creed 1 Not Playing Full Screen


I have an amd 3. 2 quad with a 5770ati graphics card all my gaming graphics is great, and all my other games run to full screen with no boarders (stretch from graphics card is ok). Oh an windows 7, great. My problem is only with assassins 1 which seems to run with a windows boarder of some type that i don't recognize, it has in the top left corner a white rectangle with a small blue square in the middle an to the right of that the name assassins creed.

The bottom also has the task bar, the best i can do to make it full screen is right click on the top bar an hit move then just click the bottom bar an the task bar disappears but the top one remains.

An if i go to close to the top during a game with my right mouse button on the move box comes up again. I don't know if this problem is with the game or a windows setting, i'm not very good with my new computer or windows yet.

Album Art Size In Wmp 12 Now Playing Screen

Have just purchased new computer with windows 7 and wmp 12. Have transferred my music over to new computer but now i only get a small pathetic sized picture of the album in the now playing screen.
With wmp 11 i had all my album art modified to 646 x 646 pixels using microsoft office picture manager, so when a song was played the album art was displayed full size in the screen which looked great. Is there any way to have now playing album art displayed large instead of a small picture?

Full Screen Browsing With Ie

This is not a question but a suggestion. I couldn't find any more appropriate place to post it. I use full-screen browsing as much as possible to maximize my screen real estate, and have found a few things that would help make this easier.

1- when a new page is loading, show the status of the connection to the website on the main screen. The problem is that the connection progress is normally displayed to the user on a browser tab, status bar or system tray, but all these areas are hidden in full-screen mode so there is no information for the user to know the status of his connection attempt.

2- when opening a new tab in full-screen mode (either with the cursor or using ctrl+t), the new tab opens and then the screen immediately maximizes again. Of course, opening a new tab is only the first step in the process. We still need to enter a web address, or search term, or select from the favorites or history menus, so the menus and tabs should remain visible until the user has launched a website. Or, ie can go back to full-screen after the user clicks on a space inside the new tab.

3- as far as i know there is no shortcut key to access the internet search dialog box like there is to access the address bar (f4). I think one of the function keys should be used to give one-button instant access to the search field.

Fyi i am using ie8 on vista home premium, if that matters. I think this functionality would be beneficial to users of all different versions, especially given the preponderance of laptops, netbooks, and the upcoming release of chrome os!

Full Screen Anti Alias

Hey, today i have a question about disabling the full screen anti-alias. I installed windows 7 over my windows vista os back in october when windows 7 was first released in stores. I had a few games installed on my pc prior to me upgrading to windows 7 but since i've tried installing any game on my pc now that it runs on windows 7, the game either won't play or it advises me to disable the full screen anti-alias to play the games i install. The thing is, i don't know where to go to disable
The full screen anti-alias. Hopefully that is in fact the resolution in resolving this issue. Otherwise i will not be able to play the games i enjoy on my pc. Do help me out with this issue please.

Display Does Not Fill Full Screen

I use two display in an extended desktop configuration, a 19 inch and a 22 inch. After upgrading from vista to windows 7 professional i have a problem if i set my smaller display as the main display. This problem did not occur until i upgraded. The problem is that with the smaller display as the main, the picture on the secondary screen only fills part of the display and not the full display. If i reverse the setting and use the larger display as the main, then it fills the screen and the second display is also full screen width.

Getting Games To Run Full Screen

I bought this new toshiba satellite laptop last week. It has windows 7. None of my games will run full screen. I never had any problem with them on either of my other computers or systems xp or vista. I have w7 home premium.

I am just sick with trying to figure this out. The only option after this is to simply return the new laptop and buy a used one that runs on xp or vista. If there is anyone who could help me, i would be eternally grateful. I am so upset with all of this. I own a gaming site and none of my 33 games will work now with the windows 7 program.

Full Screen Aspect Ratio Problem

I have a new windows 7 laptop with a wide-screen display, and i've connected it via vga to a 4:3 aspect ratio projector. Of course, i set the display resolution to a 4:3 aspect ratio to compensate, and this works just fine on the desktop, but as soon as i attempt to run a full-screen overlay, say from a media player or a powerpoint presentation, the system makes the assumption that it's still in a wide-screen format, and inserts black bars on the left and right to compensate, which overcompensates on the already 4:3 ratio screen, resulting in everything being scrunched up in the center and stretched vertically.

Hdtv Desktop Output - Full Screen

When i first connected my hdtv via hdmi and duplicated the desktop on both laptop and tv, i got a full screen image (at 1366x768). Now, i get a small sized desktop in the middle of the hdtv, unless i only display the desktop on the hdtv (at 1080 lines) and not the laptop. How do i change this back? Also, i used to have the functionality when i hit fn+f5 that it cycled through a range of different display output modes. However, now i need to use windows+p to cycle through projector modes. Any ideas what's changed?

Mouse Issues While Playing Games

I used to run windows vista 64 bit home premium on this laptop, but ever since upgrading to windows 7 64 home premium, i've noticed issues with my mouse. Primarily while i'm playing a game, it will have these moments where the mouse will either become completely unresponsive, or while i'm turning ((usually in first person games)) that it'll look like my screens clipping horribly, i can't control it. It tends to happen every 2 to 3 minutes or so, it's very consistent, but it only lasts for about 3 or 4 seconds. Even in this short window that it happens however, it ruins whatever i'm doing at the moment, it's extremely frustrating. Has anybody else had this issue or does somebody know what i can do to rectify this issue?

Playing Itunes On Media Player

What is the procedure for getting my itunes to show & play with windows media player? Some albums are visible and i have no problem playing them or sync-ing them with my cell phone that is running 6. 5. However the majority of the albums i can not figure out how to get them and all of their songs to be visible in wmp. In some cases, only 1 or 2 songs out of the album will be visible.

I have searched and can not find any distinction between the itunes albums/songs that are visible in wmp and those that are not. I have tried everything that i can think of in terms of sharing and folder/library settings, but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Bsod 0x1e When Playing Media

I'm using win7 home premium 64-bit. About 80% - 90% of the time i try to play a media file my machine goes bsod with code 0x1e. This happens with all types video formats when played in vlc or window media player locally, and when playing streaming video online using either explorer or firefox. It's even happened a few times while surfing and downloading.

Winamp plays mp3's and shoutcast tv with no problems. The last 8 crash dumps all indicate stop code 0x1e with 0's in all 4 parameter fields, however, the source varies: hal.dll, ndis.sys, ntoskrnl, and dxgkrnl.sys. When i was using winxp and win7 rc with the same hardware i never had a problem. All my 64-bit drivers and applications are up to date. Any ideas?

Problem Recording & Playing Sound

I have a gateway nv53 notebook with windows 7 home prem. I installed ventrilo, and i sounded choppy to everyone. This set off several weeks of trouble shooting and tinkering with every possible combination of settings i could find, and nothing helped. I was sure there was some problem with some setting on vent, but i decided to try using the sound recorder under accessories and playing it back with wmp. Every recording i made (10 total, about 1 min long each) came through horribly choppy. I would sound normal and clear for about 5 seconds, then there would be a quick clicking sound where you couldn't hear anything i was saying, and after that i would sound extremely low. Then another clicking sound and i sound normal for a second before another clicking sound puts me back low or sometimes ridiculously loud. I tried my external mic, which works perfect on other computers, and the built-in mic on the notebook. I don't know where to go from here. I don't know if i should be trying to update some drivers or codecs or what?
