When i play my game i cant see the whole screen how do i fix it?

If you are playing pogo games ? is an online gaming website where you can play well-known games such as Monopoly, Battleship and Scrabble -- along with scores of other board, word, puzzle and arcade games -- in a Web browser window. The games on Pogo are programmed using Adobe Flash, and are viewed in a small box inside the browser. If your computer has a large display, you may find the games difficult to see because of the of the game box. Although you cannot independently adjust the of the Pogo game box, there are several tricks that you can use to make games appear larger on your screen. Magnify the browser window. In Internet Explorer 9, click the gear-shaped button in the upper-right corner of the screen, and click "Zoom" and "Zoom In." Browse in full screen mode. In Internet Explorer 9, press the "F11" key to enter this mode, and press "F11" again to leave it. Lower the screen resolution. In Windows 7, minimize the browser, right-click the desktop and select "Screen Resolution." Click the drop-down menu next to "Resolution," and select a lower resolution than the one currently displayed. Because a lower resolution uses less pixels to display the information on the screen, this has the effect of making the Pogo game box larger. Remember to change the resolution back when you are done playing. Disable the address and status bars in Internet Explorer 9 if a portion of the game window is cut off. Click the gear-shaped button, and then click "Internet Options." Click the "Security" tab, then click the "Custom Level" button. Click the "Enable" radio button next to "Allow websites to open windows without address or status bars," then click "OK" twice. Close and re-open your Pogo game window. Press the "F4" key. Some Pogo games enter full-screen mode when this key is pressed, but many do not. Hope this helps.

Playing Games/Videos lag and graphics card failure

I would not get one opinion from here, I would Google multiple variations in the wording of your problem to see how others have fixed a similar problem.
Other than doing the usual: making sure that you have the latest drivers for your motherboard, video card, etc., freeing up RAM by closing unnecessary programs or getting more RAM and a better video card (unless you already have plenty of both). Reinstalling everything from fresh.

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.

Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

It's not your operating system that is the cause. Its either a corrupt game file, or your computer/video card can't handle the game.

Please post back with what game you are playing. I will try to be of further assistance.

Hello- I just purchased a refurbished HP 1740 17inch flat screen LCD monitor from The display is great, however on occasion the screen goes white. It reminds me of screen saver and seems...

Hi Cmrix,

it does sound like a driver problem in fact id bet on it. Just because the latest drivers are downloaded does not mean they are the best thing for your display. For example i fixed a clients pc that wanted to play the world of warcraft game and the solution was to actually install an older version of the drivers for his video card.
Theres a couple things you may try but it requires that you uninstall the latest drivers and install an older version of the drivers. You can do this by uninstalling the card and/or replacing the drivers with older ones through the device manager(start menu>control panel>system>hardware>device manager).

My other thoughts on troubleshooting this is to make sure that my screensaver was turned off and see if that fixes anything. what bothers me about this is that it happens while your using the pc (moving the mouse, using the keyboard etc).

It might also be a bad connection of some sort so you might replace the monitor cable, re-seat the vid card etc.make sure nothing is lose.

I hope I helped
