Blank screen when moving windows

I have a few stability issues within windows but otherwise it works quite well. Specifically: 1) When I move windows around, or scroll the contents of windows (basically anything that requires changing the screen) I frequently (every 10-30 seconds) get a blank screen for up to a second and then it works. It does not hang, or otherwise interfere with my work. The GPU temperature as reported by the Advanced Settings is around 40C so it does not look like an overheating issue. 2) Sometimes my machine hangs (possibly due to a graphics card issue, as the screen often gets corrupted before the hang) and when I reboot into windows it hands with vertical blue lines across the screen. I then have to turn the machine off, wait a while, turn it back on. I then get asked whether I want to go into safe mode, I select normal mode and start windows up, at which point it complains about display settings (I presume that is because it has reduced the settings because it failed to start windows previously). I ignore those, shutdown and the reboot my machine at which point it is ok. Machine is as follows: Windows 98 SE MSI-6340 motherboard. 256MB memory. AMD Athlon 1000MHz

    BTW. I ran both 3DMark01 and 3DMark03 and they both ran perfectly giving results of 3300 and 1400 respectively (not the fastest in the world but 4 times faster than with my previous graphics card).

    Sometimes, when I log in I get the task bar but no Desktop because explorer has hung, when I kill it then I get the desktop but every non built in icon has a little black square in the bottom left hand corner. In this case I also get corruption (random pixel blocks) and scrolling and dragging windows is very slow.

Console reads "Program Error 1" and otherwise won't operate normally or move out of that mode..

This issue is more than likely being caused by either a faulty PCB or PCBA. It could also be caused by a combination of both of these boards being bad. Below is a link to see these parts. PCB for C40 Console SM27130 SPORTSMITH net

PCBA with LCD Screen for C40 Console SM40070 001 SPORTSMITH net

Have a Consew 206RB-1. Seems within the span of a few hours today that whenever I'm turning while sewing any material, it will drop a stitch. When sewing in a straight line, it's perfectly fine. Can't seem...

It is probably because you need to move slower when moving the material around, as otherwise the thread beneath will just stretch over and make a new stitch. just slow down loads and should work! this probably isnt the right answer but hope i may of helped! :)

Hi i cant move my torque setting its just stuck on hammer and drill,speed ie 1 to 3 is okay but i cant get it to move to 1 to 21 is this a common problem thanks

You have an internal issue in the housing. Sometimes they will move while slowly operating the drill. If that does not work, the housing has to come apart, more specifically the head.

Canon PowerShot A460... screen resolution

Ok, couple of ways, I'll start with the easy one - Go to a blank space on your desktop (anywhere its blank) and right click. You get a drop down window, go to the bottom where it says Personalize (it says Properties in windows XP)

Windows Vista - You get a window with a buncha links - the bottom should be display settings. click it. You'll see a long bar where u can drag a notch across from left to right... move it over to the right 1 notch, click apply (screen may get smaller, but its normal, just zooms out) Then click yes if a windows asks u if its ok. then click apply, and ok on the display settings window. Then try running the disk again... if it give u the same error, repeat the steps, just moving it over to the right a notch (just 1) each time.

Windows XP - You'll get a window with a buncha tabs. click settings tab. You'll see a notch to drag left and right. move it over to the right 1 notch, click apply (screen may get smaller, but its normal, just zooms out) Then click yes if a windows asks u if its ok. then click apply, and ok on the display settings window. Then try running the disk again... if it give u the same error, repeat the steps, just moving it over to the right a notch (just 1) each time.

Hope it works out! My grandma just now asked me how to do it, and since i love her so, and don't want anyone stuck on this error either, I'm posting it for yas:-)
