Updade Monitor jumping problem from yesterday

Yesterday, I posted the problem about my screen jumping randomly. Today, I have figured out, it is only when I am on a Yahoo based screen. Any ideas??

    IE 7.5730.11

    Windows XP

    It is really strange. At first I thought it was a monitor problem but since it happened often but very randomly, I couldn't figure out what it was I was doing to make it jump. When I tried to troubleshoot, I would think it was fixed b/c it wouldn't be jumping but when I would go back to my regular activities, checking mail (on yahoo) reading news items (also on yahoo) the problem seemed to return. This let me to start paying attention and noticing that it wasn't happening on sites like this or any other sites.

    I have reset all of my settings to factory defaults to see if I might have accidentally set something (like securities or browser items) specifically for yahoo. That didn't change anything either.

    I would appreciate any ideas. It is driving me crazy. It seems to jump right when I am going to click on something and causes me to click on an unwanted item.

    No idea but if anyone can answer this i definately want to know what caused it.
    This is one of the most unique problems i have come across.

    Just a preemptive idea though. Run through your internet options and see if there are any securities set specifically for yahoo. Again no idea how to fix it but this is a start.

    To help you might also want to tell us what O.S you are using and what version of internet explorer you use

    i just found something that might help you. other than this at least for right now i don't have any solution besides trying to re-install IE7

    1. In your IE6 browser, open Tools >> Internet Options.
    2. In the resulting dialog, click on the Security tab.
    3. Make sure Internet zone is selected, and click Custom Level....
    4. Under the category ActiveX Controls and Plug-Ins, scroll down until you find Binary and Script Behaviors.
    5. I'm predicting yours is Disabled. Change the setting to Enabled.
    6. Click on OK.
    7. A message will pop-up asking if you want to change the settings. Select Yes.
    8. Click OK in the Internet Options dialog.
    9. All Fixed!

Worked fine yesterday - will not turn on today - kitchen

When you say the machine is dead do you mean you are getting no LED lights at all or do you mean it is not booting up? No power and no post are two different things. With no power you get absolutely nothing at all. With no post you may have some LED lights but nothing comes up on the screen. You said power and power supply tested ok. How are you testing it? I need more info please.
