    When I'm playing a movie in WMP9 I can't switch to full
    screen mode. It doesn't matter what format the movie is
    in; AVI, MPG, etc. It doesn't make a difference what
    method I use to try and get to full screen mode (ALT+ENTER
    or button). What happens is I'll try to switch to full
    screen and the screen will go black with a single frame of
    the video up in the upper left-hand corner, then it'll pop
    back to its prior display mode. I'm running a Windows2000
    Pro machine with SP4 installed as well as DirectX 9.

    What I did to fix that when it did it to me Ken is go to the tab:
    Tool> Options> Performance> Advanced, and be sure that the "enable full
    screen mode switch" is *UnChecked* and click Okay, and that fixed the
    problem for me, which seemed backwards for it's wording but it was so.

    ....does it work for you when you uncheck that box?
