Having a very frustrating issue whereby when I tab out of Word of Warcraft instead of instantly going to Windows I get a 4 second pause a green line flash accross the screen and then the same again when I tab back in.  Having checked various forums I have seen talk of AMD card not supporting directx 11.2.  Could this be the issue? If so when will it be fixed.  Also people talking about variations in setting between windows and WoW, again could this be it? I think I have both at max settings.


Any help greatly apreciated.

When the desktop resolution differs from the game resolution, that's what happens.  Nothing wrong, it takes a few seconds for the video card to switch modes, gaming (3D) to desktop (2D).

I fixed this by using Windowed FULL screen, rather than full screen.  One thing to be aware of is you lose gamma correction.  So test it in a dark area of wow before you go into a RAID and find out its too dark.
