Default Games Minimizing on startup

Hi All

My Setup is :

ASrocks 4Core dual SATA2,
Intel E2200 2.2ghz,
Crucial 1GB DDR2 667MHz/PC2-5300,
Saphire HD 3650 512mb

When I am starting games like Half Life 2 World of Warcraft Age of Empires the games are starting but them being minimized to the taskbar and not working, I can hear the sound but cannot get them to start properly. Yet Dawn of War and Counter Strike Source work fine?

Any ideas, im ready to explode!!

Thanks for looking

In the Properties of the game's shortcut, have you tried setting the "Run" options to Normal Window?

If that setting doesn't fix the problem, just right click the game on the Task Bar (after it's running) and select "Maximize."

If either one of those two moves doesn't fix the problem, then you can cut off my pants and call me shorty.
