Hi All,

i have the following problem and in hope there is somebody who can provide a solution. Since the last few drivers, which came out short time after BF4 Launch, i have the problem, that i cannot play some Games in Fullscreen. For example in BF4 i just hear the sound but have a blackscreen but when i put it in window mode it works. On other games i see the window borders although its set to fullscreen. 

Today i did a fresh install, with the latest 14. Mantle driver but the problem exists. System: WIN 8.1, Intel Core i5 750, 8GB DDR RAM, 600W PSU, ASUS P7P55D-E, XFX HD7970 GHZ Edition

I hope that somebody can help me cause thats really annoying. It seems to be something with the graphic card model, cause i have a friend with an HD5850 and same drivers and he does not have those problems..

Hmmmm, I would disable any "overlay programs" that you  may have.

First step is to boot with a clean state of windows:

Your idea helped.. i have a program installed called Teamviewer and it has a function to quick connect to other computers. This function adds an additional symbol into the programbar and obviously this caused the problem.

Thanks for that!
