It happens to me since I started playing this game (so far I had 2 PCs and 3 video cards, always with updated drivers). It's not very annoying, but rather weird. I play in windowed mode and often switching to browser, other programs etc. When I go back to game by alt-tab, I sometimes encounter whole osu blackened and it still remains like that until I restart the game.

http://osu.ppy.sh/ss/45359 <--- here I was spectaing someone, at this time "Spectator mode" and the rest was invisible, but usually it's visible.

It does NOT happen while I go back to game by clicking osu on the taskbar.
My previous cards were GF 9800GT, 9500GT and current is GTS 250.

So you are saying it only happens when using the alt-tab shortcut? And only the gameplay part disappears?

Yes, only when alt-tab is used, but whole game disappears including main menu, options etc except chat after pressing F8 and confirmation of quitting the game after pressing ESC - they're still visible.

I forgot to do more screens >_>

Two videos, spectating people and this time also info about player and map played are invisible. Still you can see the jukebox etc are visible.
Any hints how to fix this, anybody?

Ok, for the first time of my osu! life it also happened after I got back to game by clicking osu! on the taskbar, but I think it changes nothing in that case and still I'm the only one who have this weird problem.

Just saying.

Edit: Ok, after getting it 4th time in 1 hour I also received special bonus: frame drop to about 20, despite the fps counter showing 800 and more. Fucking magnificent.

Funny fact, I STILL get this shit up. Am I really the only one who has this problem? -_-' Any ideas of fixing it?

I got the same problem too. When i switch to other application using alt-tab and switch back to osu, the screen will turn black and cant possibly click something, while the music keep playing. This happened when i using fullscreen mode to play .
