The devil is in the detail that you don't mention. You have problems playing videos full-screen. You don't mention what player(s) you use and what (kind of) videos you use them to play. I don't understand what you mean by "the system log out". Can you describe exactly what happens? In other words, start again and describe your problem completely with all the necessary details.

first at all i would like to say that english is not my first language , sorry if i made mistakes ,
i've used many players (vlc,banshee,movie player,........and many others) ........;and about the flies formats (mp4,avi,3gp,...) the probelm deals with all the players however the video format might be
and about the system log out ........is exactly like when you chose LOG OUT to quit the session

You might have not enough vram to do full-screen. Please give the details of your videocard including how much ram it has. Have you looked at the contents of /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see if it has generated any errors? Look for lines beginning with (EE). This is likely to give you the answer since it seems your xserver is crashing if you're back to a tty.
ciao,

Which part about looking for lines beginning with (EE) don't you undertand? Here is a sample of my own Xorg.0.log

[    19.878] (II) RADEON(0): Printing probed modes for output DVI-0
Do you see the (II) in these lines? That means "Informational". I don't have any errors. If you see lines containing (EE) that means errors.
I have 256M of 64bit prefetchable memory. If you only have 64M that may be too little to do what you want. If this is true an update of the system will not help. You would need to get a video card with more memory.
ciao,

there are no lines beginning with (EE) but there is some lines beginning with (WW) or (==) or (--) , thanks for your help jdkay but i'm a so stupid person and i don't think that i can solve that problem , i am just moving form mandriva 2011.2 (witch was great distribution without problems) to ubuntu , now i can't get back to mandriva , the only thing that cheers me to use ubuntu is the simplicity of it's terminal and tons of information and packages online (that's not the situation with mandriva ) and the easy installation of programing environment tools for java (neatbeans,jbuilder,...........) however thanks for your help jdkay
