Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Theres a gremlin in my vista

Hello guru's, i have a little problem with my vista 32 os ( hp pavilion dv9000 )
i have called hp support and they have no idea and want to take the easy way out and format and recover.
While looking at the desktop, the icons will refresh every 2-3 mins. while using internet explorer and typing inside the search bar or while dragging the window slide down, sometimes i will loose the text box as if i have clicked outside it ( but i havent ) or while dragging the window down it will just stop moving down as if i have let go of the mouse.
Also while running a full screen application, it will return to the desktop on its own accord, as if it has minimised itself.

Im not one for diagnosing things like this, your help would be much appreciated..

Hmm....could be so many different things, have virus protection?
Does the PC have a 3d supported video card?
Is Aero enabled? Try disabling aero see if it fixes it. All else fails reinstall vista.

There is a seperate partition on your hard drive called recovery. You would boot to the recovery partition and install vista that way after reformate.
