Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

No Full screen and failing display driver

1st thing: Fullscreen
When trying to watch videos on the internet, I press the fullscreen button or link and on my screen (instead of what I was watching), two triangles (one in each corner making a square cut in half diagonally top right to bottom left both a different colour) shows up. I have a Radeon HD 3450 Graphics card and a Flatron W2234s monitor. What's going on?

2nd: Failing Driver
I know my driver is capable of displaying the graphics of the games I am playing, however when I am playing the games the screen goes black and the game shuts down and a message comes up saying "Display Driver has failed/stopped working". I am running windows vista, I have ATI Catalyst Control Center. I have also tried to update my friver but it says I have the most recent update.

Hopefully someone has an answer, would be greatly appreciated.

Turn Your iPod Into a Full Screen Television Set

Yes! It is possible! Hard to believe but then what is not technologically possible anymore these days?
The iPod is not just a music gadget anymore. It is a game, video, and personal diary all rolled into one. The latest product of Apple is the video iPod. How did they come up with this incredible concept?
The iPod screen is small, about 2.5 inches. Of course, that is because it is a tiny handheld audio device. It was not meant to be heavy or big. That would defeat the purpose. Combine that with the obvious that people like watching movies on the big screen. In fact, the bigger, the better, right? This is the next advanced technology after the connection adapter that links your iPod with your computer and your television. You would not even need the actual television to watch your movie!
How do you do this? How do you get to have an iPod that also works as a mobile television?
To do this, you would need to buy Micro Optical Goggles. This is something you can wear like spectacles, or over your glasses or contact lens. A cable will link the goggles to the port of the iPod headset. They are quite light, about 70 g only, and has a belt clip to hold the iPod. The set runs on regular triple A batteries.
Through a set of lenses, these Micro Optic Goggles will send the images from two LCDs to your eyes so you can view the video on what would appear to be a 27-inch television screen.
For those of you on the go, how perfect would it be to be able to travel around, work on research, and watch relaxing movies in your free time?
Sounds like the perfect scenario, right? Unfortunately, if you are working on a budget, you might have to plan out your purchase since this Micro Optic Goggles can cost quite a bundle. It retails for about $269 at the moment. That is the present price but as we all know, as soon as the demand settles down and other similar devices start popping up, the price will also decrease. What is more, the battery pack might even be changed to affect the weight of the goggles and make them lighter.
The race is on and iPod has got the heads up on this one. If you can afford to buy these goggles, you will be the life of any get-together and you get to enjoy your iPod even more. Now that you know about these great microvision, fullscreen goggles, click the link below to find out more.
If you have a video iPod, click the link to find out how you can get inexpensive microvision goggles that allow you to watch fullscreen videos with stereo sound.

I would reccomend updating the drivers to the latest version. You can visit the manufacturers website to obtain these.

Failing this, you could run a Windows update to see if it contains the necessary drivers.

Try lowering the resolution of the game before you go to fullscreen. There is usually an eye looking icon. Click it and you will notice the detail of the game lower.
