Default Help with 6800 and Halo pc game

I am having problems getting Halo to work with my DVI cable coming from my Geforce 6800 I just bought. this is the first time I have had an oppertunity to use a dvi cable for my computer and except for my halo problems things seem to be going quite well.

When i try and start the halo game it wont actually show the halo screen. Instead it shows thw win xp desktop with the halo bar at the bottom showing me that the game is running. i can here the music and when i move my mouse i occasionally hear that i have passed over a menu option, but i cannot see the halo startup screen or the mouse cursor anymore.

Does anyone have any ideas for me to try and resolve this problem?

This happens to me with FEAR when I have Trillian running. I disable Triallian (and everything else that can take focus from my 3D game) and all is well.
I used to drive a Heisenberg, but whenever I'd glance at the speedometer, I'd get lost.
