so hello dear community... :D :ahh:

Lately i have very annoying problem with screen fading to black whenever i:
1. trying drop EU to desktop via alt + tab / ctrl + esc
2. trying switch EU to window mode ctrl + enter

3. trying send message, or just pressing enter
(either when i press enter to open chat.
or when i opened chat window with mouse + wrote the message and wanted use enter to confirm and send it to soc m8 or anyone else)

Third problem is very anoying as it's preventing me from effective in-game socialising. Can't say even god damn "Thank you", when someone heals me without screen going black. Not to mention any trading or bussiness deals.

When this happens, only way how i can go back to windows is through restart of whole computer.


I recall that enter sometimes caused also change game into window mode, which can be partialy cause, but not when message is written and just trying to send it i guess.

Last 2-3 times this happened , the reinstalation of EU kinda helped, but problem keeps comming back and i kinda refuse to do it every 3 days.


Any thoughs ?

p.s.

my comp specs:
i7 920 quad.
nvidia/gigabyte GTX 275, 1,8GB - tried update drivers to solve problem
6GB Ram
22'' LG LCD wide.
windows 7 x64 - running program as admin, tried various compatibility settings.

keyboard: Razer Arctosa gaming keyboard - tried reset all keys and macros to solve problem.

Don't use those keys. Run EU in window mode by enabling it in the options. (options/graphics, fullscreen-option)
Then when you want to disable windows mode, simply disable it in the options.
If it still goes to blackscreen, your windows/videocard may be broken, or it may be a driver-issue, so use the recommended drivers in that case.
BTW to enable/disable windows mode, you don't have to logout etc.
