A CS problem....

I recently upgraded my computer. I had:

Duron 700
GeForce 2 MX 64 MB
and an Epox Motherboard.

I now have:

Athlon XP 2500+
MSI K7N2 Delta Motherboard
and an ATI Radeao 9600 Pro Video Card

I have the newest drivers for all my hardware and all the newest patches and steam updates for CS. After about 5-10 minutes of gameplay, usually after I die, my window minimizes and when I maximize the game back I get a black screen with no picture.

My video settings in CS are on D3D, Highest Quality (32bit) and 800x680 resolution (I like the bigger look.)

Any suggestions?

Sometimes it can be financially a better choice to buy another computer if you want to change the motherboard,which implies in your case,to change the RAM and some other components,and it can cost less if you choose your own spare parts and build it yourself;last advantage:you have 2 computers instead of one

It must be a hardware problem;either the computer is not well balanced or there is an incompatibility of components
After changing the hard drive of my computer for a bigger one,i couldn't download diablo 2 anymore (i had blue screens with fatal errors during the download);then i chose to upgrade the processor and this upgrade solved the problem

Try using OpenGL graphics instead of D3D... HL/CS is a Quake engine based game, so OpenGL is its native 3D API. Valve added the D3D support on their own and IMO it's neither particularly good looking nor stable.
