    Full Screen Games keep minimizing! (Need Help)


    Recently, full screen games have been minimizing about every 1 to 2 minutes. I've tried everything I can, like disabling non windows related processes, disabling startup programs, uninstalling my printer software and other ambiguous software and doing a virus scan. Nothing has come to fruition. I'm not sure why it keeps minimizing though, anybody with a fix? Everything else is smooth, only games seem to be affected.

    My specs are as follows:
    Windows 8.1
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i1-4770 CPU @ 3.40Ghz
    RAM: 8GB
    System type: 64 bit OS and x64 based processor
    Alienware x51 r2
    GPU: GeForce GTX 760 Ti OEM
    Driver Version: 355.82
