I think I got it

Oh, that happens sometimes. The program is changing the resolution of your screen to match the in-game resolution.

Did you turn off your computer while you were playing?

Try this for me: Run Audition and exit it normally.

Let me explain

In reply to: game shutdown

You know how when you run a game, your screen flashes, and you might see it look a bit bigger before the game runs? This is because the game is changing the resolution. Smaller resolutions run faster, which is why a lot of games change it.

In order to fix your problem, go to control panel, appearance and resolution. From there, adjust the resolution bar to match your screen correctly.

HP just issued some patch to my hp laptop's video system. It had to do with external displays and your issue rings a bell that sounds almost like their update.

I know some disable those updates but I installed it and it seems fine.

Simuliar problem with MSN

In reply to: Why my labtop screen suddenly turn big when i turn it on

I have the same problem when ever I connect to MSN. Then when I click a tab it flashes back to the original resolution. But then iI click another tab and the resolution enlarges again. I couldn't figure it out so I just don't go to any of the sites.
