Screen break up/pink 'noise' interference

This seems to get worse each time I use the scroll bar or cursor to relocate on the page.
The noise started happening a couple of weeks after downloading an ATi Graphics card, to use with some Lego software. It seems to be getting increasingly difficult to read the screen. Didn't happen for a couple of weeks after downloading graphics software and have since unistalled it (no difference)
Is this a virus, or a problem you recognise?

TV Reception

All structures - including trees can interfere with reception of radio or TV signals. Some are worse than others ie: a brick wall directly in front of the antenna (between it and the station) is far worse than I tree is. If you are unable to relocate the antenna - you may get relief by RAISING it. If that is not possible, you can try adding a powered (called "active" as opposed to un-powered or a "passive") inline amplifier. This will boost all signal levels, including "noise" but usually results in a better picture. Change the antenna itself to one that offers more GAIN - and add the amplifier if the antenna change alone is not enough. Finally, a directional antenna, pointed directly at the transmitter is the best "over the air" method of reducing "multi-path" (a common cause of "ghosting") and other types of signal interference. You can try all these at the same location as the omni-directional antenna so, they aren't really resulting in "relocation". An excellent source for information that can be custom tailored to your specific location and channels you like top watch can be found at:

I hope this helps & good luck!

The page scrolls up and down - somtimes even jumps up and down - when the cursor is nowhere near the right hand of the screen where the vertical scroll bar is.

It is possible you might have picked up a virus, or a bad device driver. Try a system restore taking the computer back in time before this happened, may resolve the issue.

Dell LCD monitor has flashing lines, color distortion; random

I'm not an expert but I will give you a couple suggestion, who knows might help might not. It's worth shot.
First open your internet explorer, when webpage comes up, go to the top of you screen and click Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, scrool down under the list marked Browsing, put a check in the box next to "Use smooth scrolling." And try it again.
The next thing is try you other cord, it could be your video card.
If it works good on the other computer, chances are, The comupter is the problem.
If the computer has Windows XP on it you could try a restore point.
Go to Start button, Click All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore, Click on one of the Dates that would be, before you remember having the problem, click next, let the computer reboot. And, see what happens then.
Hope that helps some...

Cursor Will Not Stay Put

Try uninstalling the drivers from the device manager, then do a hardware search. It will automatically find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't work, then check the connector under the keyboard. Disconnect it and reconnect it, they sometimes work loose. If these don't correct the problem, then you have a faulty touch pad and you'll have to replace it.
