Default Computer deciding to handle full screen interstingly

Well, recently, my graphics card has decided to stop responding every time I enter full screen mode in games. Although, this is not for every game. Really simple/old games don't mess up, and it only seems to be new things. As of now, I suspect it is a problem with OpenGL.

I start up a game, enters full screen, I see the screen get distorted for a few seconds, and then monitor says "No signal" and stays that way. I am running an ATI x800 pro.

I have tried installing the newer drivers, and I am now considering flashing and reinstalling the graphics card bios.


Thanks for the help~!
