  1. So your video card is updated? I think the main problem is that your computer's hardrive is so full that it's cause your computer to lag. Maybe it'll help if you cleaned your computer's space a little bit. I also found these tips on how to "fix" this problem from another forum:

    1. Hit pause, presuming it's still the P key.

    2. Hit your windows key and it will take you out to the winows screneen. The start menuy will open as well so close that.

    3. Wait a second or so, and then click back on the game which is sitting on the taskbar.. You may have to try this more than once but I often can get my game sceeen back this way.
