I've got this problem for a while now and I don't now how to fix it. D:
Oblivion keep minimizing it self after 3 to 15 minutes of playing it. I don't know why or how but it does. When it minimize it self the start menu opens up (the little start button in the bottom left corner).
So when I close the start menu and open up Oblivion I get 3-6 FPS and I have to exit the game and start it again. I've been searching on Google for a answer but when I find something that work for others it doesn't work for me as always. -__-
1. The oblivion.ini file have like a background keyboard and background mouse option so the mouse and keyboard works outside Oblivion but I've set them to 0 as they should be.
2. I've changed oblivion.exe to open maximized.
3. I've downloaded a program from Microsoft where you can change so other programs can't steal focus.
4. Delete Oblivion.ini and start the game again.
2 and 3 works only for a while and then the problem came back. I want a solution NAO!! I want to play oblivion again without problems.
BTW I've recently reinstalled windows but the problem still remains.
Before you launch Oblivion make sure to close and shut down: AOL, AOL TopSpeed, BigFix, iTunes, and eFax Messenger, and Windows Defender. Right-click anything in the System Tray (bottom right corner) and tell them to Exit or Shutdown.
I would recommend uninstalling Google Toolbar (and any other extra toolbars [Yahoo, MySearch, etc]). The negative effects these toolbars have on a system is far far greater than the "convenience" they provide.
Copied that from some website
I have a G15. It means that I can disable the windows buttons on my keyboard. But I've tried to have them enabled (whatever you say) but it still happens. :/
I'm 100% sure that I've ended as many programs as possible. Even the firewall and antivirus.
I tend to swear when I press any button. :D
Probably a glitch, yes. But I don't want to wait for an update because it seems as they have to much to do with Fallout 3 and stuff that's more "important" then Oblivion. :(
I feal your pain... This exact same thing happened to me when I played it. But the start menu never came up. just some random window showed up on the task bar then disappeared.
I played it in windows mode and I stopped.
Unplug my Internet cable didn't work.
As I said before. I can't even start Oblivion in windowed mode
I reinstalled windows a few days ago. So that means I reinstalled Oblivion too. How big of a chance can it be that the install have been corrupted 3 times in a row?
Sounds to me like a fail cd.
Mine works just fine, except it crashes after about 10 minutes of fighting, I have everything unlocked so far and cant even leave Bruma cause it fails to load everything. I think for me its my video card cause its an Intel GMA 915, lol. /epic.
Try to talk to the supoprt on Oblivion and see what they can do for you. Only advice i have left.
Yeah, worst is when you fight 10 enemies at the same time with spawned enemies too.
EDIT: I'll try to contact the support about this and see if there's something that can be done about this if everything else fail.
Alt + TAB makes my game slow too. D:
I've heard Ctrl + Alt + Delete works better but it doesn't work for me. Like every other problem I get, it can't be fixed the same way as everyone else's problems get fixed. :S
I can't get lower then 32 processes or my computer will shut down.
I've tried No-CD cracks but they just makes my game glitchy and shit. I've also tried to download the game but it's still the same. But I did that like a year ago because of an other problem with the game.
