Because it's so hot this summer I'm getting a lot of lock-ups & crashes while playing FB. I've tried with additional cooling (extra heatsink fan + a clip fan) with no result. The CPU temp shouldn't be the problem - it's between 43 & 52 depending on how busy things are. The problem is my gfx card getting so hot you could frie eggs & bacon on the radiator & the only reason I'm not doing this is that it would be a mess.
Normally I run FB with 1024x768 but cutting the res down to 800x600 sorts out the freezes. Only problem is that it only takes up about 90% of the screen size. How can I make FB go full screen with 800x600 without changing the default resolution in Windows?

Thx in advance http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
