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!

My computer had not been used in a couple of weeks and when I turned it back on it started beeping and the monitor will come on but cannot see screen

The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

When I start up the Acer Aspire M3710 Desktop it won't do anything but run the processor, it won't give any results of the POST and it also refuses to show anything on my screen (no Signal)....

1. Check the video cable (the one going from the monitor to the video card) 2. Check if the video card is properly connected to the motherboard (must be tightly plugged into the port)3.This could also mean that the drivers for the video card are not correctly installed

At start up my viewsonic va1912wb display blinks several times then i can see the picture but it is dark almost unreadable. Today it went darker than yesterday. HELP!

If it is dark due to brightness adjustment, get that adjusted. Usually when you adjust the brightness by pressing the menu button, the menu screen would not be dark. If everything is dark dark dark and you can only see some display but in very pitch darkness, then your monitor is a goner, backlit for the monitor is dead, and your monitor will need to be replaced. You can fix the backlit tubing, however it is risky, and expensive, and would cost less if you bought a replacement.

When I try to start my VGC-RB30 (back from sleep mode or fresh start), computer comes on, but monitor doesn't (or I get the VAIO screen only). Yesterday, I unplugged the computer altogether, then plugged...

Check all of your adapter cards (PCI or AGP or PCIE) to ensure they are seated into the MB properly. As the problem seems video related double check the graphics adapter if it is a stand alone card. AGP cards can be tricky to seat properly on some mb's

Dell monitor screen jumps and screensaver won't ever turn on.

first turn hibernate off. this is probably causing problem with your screensaver. when you say your screen jumps that leads me to believe that your monitor is probably on its way out. If you can try to hook up a diffferent monitor and see if you have the same results
