Games minimize as soon as they open!

  chriscars1 22:04 06 Feb 06

All graphic windows i open minimize as soon as they open but the game conyinues to run in the background because i can still here the sound through my speakers. It also happens to other graphic intensive apps such as 3dmark which shows the first loading screen then closes with an error saying 3dmark cannot continue as it has lost focus.
Any help would be much appreciated and thanks in advance to anyone who replies.

No problems found
but when i run test directdraw i get
DirectDraw test results: Failure at step 5 (User verification of rectangles): HRESULT = 0x00000000 (error code)
and on every Direct3D test the screen closes early with a message
The tests were cancelled before completing.

Update your graphics drivers.
