Random Monitor Problem- wow related

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
When I used to alt-tab or window key out of wow it instantly went to the desktop, now if i alt tab or window key my monitor goes black for like 2 secs and then goes to the desktop and my monitor reads that it just received DVI connection. It's like every time I alt tab the monitor loses DVI connection then gets it back...this wouldn't normally bother me but since it didn't do it before it does lol

I'm sure it could be monitor related, or related to the game itself because black ops doesn't do this when i alt tab

any suggestions would help, thanks!

nvm fixed it, apparently i set my monitor to 59Hz in game and it didn't recognize 1920x1080 as the native res of my monitor so it refreshed it every time i would alt tab or enter game. changed it back to 60Hz and its back to normal.
