Full Screen problem Media player?

  lazanda 14:39 04 Dec 2005

I go to full screen mode on my pc on Win media player and it goes full screen, but as I watching it keeps reverting back to 'non' full screen mode as in the frames appear again then it goes back to full screen and so on; its like when you move the mouse. The same thing happens when my screen saver kicks in, it just keeps switching itself off like I am moving the mouse.

any idea what this could be ?

Have you scanned for viruses and spyware?

Could be.

I have checked and my screen saver keeps going off too like the mouse is being moved.

Tried AVG to find virus - nothing
Installed spyware blaster - nothing

This didnt work, any other ideas ?

Really appreciate it,

This may be too simple a suggestion but ....

If you look at the top border of Mediaplayer, there is a "drawing pin" icon. Clicking this should lock the screen ratio.

What kind of mouse do you have?

I find that with my non-wireless mouse the weight of the cable will sometimes drag my mouse and cause media player's surround to appear. This can happen several minutes after it was last touched.

Or if you're wireless, is the platform your mouse is own completely flat, for the same reason?

I have taken the batteries out of my mouse, and the dongle that goes in the back of the PC (its wireless) and its still happens.

I thought it should be the mouse as its eaxactly what happens if you move it, but still no luck.
