Scroll Appears As A "ripple" Moving Up Or Down The Screen?
Jul 31, 2008
When I try to scroll up or down a page using either the scroll arrows or the mouse roller button, the scroll appears as a "ripple" moving up or down the screen. It slows down the scrolling process intolerably. A similar effect occurs when I scroll right or left. I have sought for solutions using Desktop Properties/Display/Appearance, Folder Options, Control Panel/System, and anything else I can think of, but I cannot get rid of this annoying "ripple".
Turned the computer on today and Windows will not load, gets as far as the black Windows XP page with the loading scroll bar. Nothing happens beyond that. Everything was working fine yesterday and nothing was downloaded or installed to indicate where to start looking. Tried installing 1GB RAM last month to no avail and took it out. Things have been okay since. Have read some posts that suggest using the Windows install CD to repair whatever but I didn't get one with the computer only have the Windows recovery disk.
i get this error when i tried to open up my computer, first the windows xp loading screen works fine, then after that the screen just goes black and stays like that forever. this happened when i tried to uninstall a USB Bluetooth driver and it was requested to restart my pc so i did, and after that restart i cant get in no more, the screen just goes black after the windows xp load screen. im wondering how can i fix this problem? please help me guys... thank you.. and o yeah one more thing.. when i tried it on safe mode it went to the welcome screen but after that when i try to move my cursor i didnt move at all then i restart my pc again and the whole thing happens once more
I have noticed for a while now on my desktop PC that I built that When the Boot loader gets to the Windows boot screen with the indicating bar moving across the screen it will start to slow down tremendously and then speed up again then go to the desktop and it loads fine but that is bothering me and I can not figure out what it is?? I have a 350 watt PS, a MSI MB 845 chipset, a P4 2.2ghz processor, two memory sticks total 1 gig of ram they are corsair nd ultra, two HDD's maxtor 80gig and a 80 western digital as slave, one chassis fan and one bay fan.
The word Webcam appears on my screen then my browser(Chrome) starts and loads tab after tab of a webpage for Logitech webcams. Taps continue to load until chrome crashes. Only then can I regain control of Chrome and the computer. I've tried all the usual antispy tools but nothing finds what is causing this. I do have a wireless logitech keyboard and mouse.
My wife brought home a computer from work that was no longer needed. Everything started normally, ran well, but then after updating windows the log on screen appears and now needs a password. Any ideas?
XP Professional has been running fine for years and now it won't shut down, it hangs at the screen. The only way to turn it off is with the power button. I tried to do a restore but when it gets to the point of restart the system won't shut down and the restore fails. I have McAfee installed and have scanned three times with no problems found.
Recently XP Pro has been taking ages to boot up. The system post screens come up and the windows loading bar shows no problem but then before the windows welcome screen appears followed by the desktop i get a black screen for approx 30 - 60 seconds.Once the desktop has finally loaded the pc works absolutely as normal I have not installed any new hardware or software recently.I cannot hear any drive activity during the black screen
First i tried to boot from disk and then it told me that i dont even have a hard drive installed. I fixed this problem by pressing F6 when my windows cd was booting up and now it loads some RAID drivers off from a floppy disk i made up so that the HDD is there.
Just as some other posts have mentioned, i did not try the recovery console and went straight into setting up windows. When it asks me to choose a partition. I selected the one that i created when i built my computer (the one i have very valuable files on) and from there it gives me the "blue screen of death" or so my friend used to call it...the one that says the computer has been shut down to prevent damage to my computer.
Also, with no other ideas i went into the recovery console... it asks something around "on what volume do you want to recover"...so i press the number 1 which is drive C then from there goes to the blue screen again.
Another thought i ran across is that the disk i am trying to use is a windows xp home and i set up my computer with xp pro....i seem to have lost the disk!!! Im hoping that's not the reason for the blue screen.
every time i finish playing a game and exit out of it to return to windows. all i get is a black screen with my mouse curser, everything is still there i just carnt see anything. to fix this everytime i just push the windows button on the universal remote to media center, it starts up i exit out of it then everything is normal. just a little anoying having to do this after every game i play.
I recently had my motherboard changed on my Intel Pentium IV 1.6 GHz PC due to some serious problems.Now, I'm again suffering from problems. Once I boot it, POST is displayed, and the Windows splash screen appears. Very often, the screen goes blank. It seems that everything else is working. If I press Alt+F4 followed by a 'u' (To select the 'turn off' button), I hear the Windoze shut-down sound and the computer shuts down.
I installed xp pro with slipstreamed SP2. I thought everything was going fine but just a split-second after I see the desktop, the screen goes black.Athlon XP 1600, ECS Elite K7AMA3 KT266A, Sapphire Radeon 9250 128DDR.
My computer was having some issues so I manually re-installed windows media center edition on my Dell 9300 laptop using the disks Dell provides ( run on sentence). Formatted and re-intalled everything went great. Added all software-everything great. However during the install it asked where to load the new operating system there were 3 or 4 places to load, screen said to load to biggest partition. I did. Why are there so many partitions and are they needed? Do they take up space? Also now when the system reboots a black screen shows up and says which operating system do you want to load, they are both the same I leave it at the top one and windows loads with no problems. How do I either get rid of this bogus operating system or diable this page from coming up?
My notebook starts acting like this (just black screen appears after window logo on startup) durning these days. Whenever this happens, i restart it and it asks me to choose Safe Mode, Safe Mode with command prompts, start window normally,etc. I choose start window normally . It was ok evey time i restart till yesterday. When i restart it as usual and choose "start windown normally" today, nth appears but just black screen after window logo. What's the problem.If i have to choose Safe Mode, after choosing it wat should i do?
Can someone tell me how to get rid of the "Windows Log On Screen" that appears on some (not all) installations of XP Pro? I have two machines both running XP Pro installed from the same disk and kept completely current by Microsoft. One displays the screen on every bootup and one never displays it. To be clear, I'm not talking about the greeting screen that can be turned on/off in the user account. The screen I mean is the one with the blue background and a simple login box asking for a password. Actually, you don't even need a password. If you click "OK" or press "enter" the screen disappears to be replaced by a desktop. Thanks in advance.
My dad has a Sony Vaio labtop that he bought from his friend at work with the operating system and all the software already installed. It has a single account named Owner that he clicks on which usually allows him to log-on, he never had a password. He clicks the icon, it appears to start logging on then suddendly it will say logging off, saving settings, then returns us back to the main log-on screen.I tried to start in safe mode by pressing F8 while the computer is intially turning on, but all the labtop does is make this loud beeping noise and starts up normally. No screen appears for me to select safe mode or anything.
I have given my sister my old Averatec laptop that has Windows XP on it. While she is using it, eventually a blue screen appears, which is the precursor to it restarting suddenly. It happens so fast that we cannot read what the blue screen says. After it starts back up, we get a microsoft report saying a serious error has occured. This might not help, but I'll list it just in case. The error signature is:Is this a virus? If so, is there any hope without reformatting? I accidentally uninstalled the program that contained the OS files when I first got the computer.
I keep a clean computer. Every day virus updates and scans, defrags, etc. I probably go overboard to make sure this rig stays healthy.But it's my lifeline to the world. I'm in a third world country with no computer help at all...Barely a connection at time.That being said.3 times now when I boot up the computer runs through it's cycles, goes to the Windows XP page, and then absolutely nothing. Just a blank screen. The same happens even when trying to go to safe-mode or debug. I'm lucky it's even working now.I've saved all my information.
My husbands PC won't boot.the welcome (but without the welcome messege) and then the following error occurs"The Application failed to initialize properly (0x0000142) click OK to terminate program"We have no idea what this could be (the only recent changes made to the PC is a wireless connection, which was set up almost 2 weeks ago, so i am thinking that this isn't connected to the problem now?)....or how it has happened. My husband has tried to boot in safe mode and the welcome screen appears (again without welcome messege) and goes no further.
I have tried looking for a solution on the web for this and I canâ€™t seem to find anything that quite matches my problem. I have a Dell Inspiron 2500 which is a few years old. I have not recently installed anything new onto it or added new hardware or anything, but the other day i switched it on and it appeard to be starting up fine. The Dell screen comes up, the Windows startup splash screen appears then the screen goes blank. The laptop continues to load properly (i think) as you can hear the start up music and everything loading up, but the screen is blank, (tho the colour of it down change to a slight lighter shade of black!).
I have tried outputting to a different monitor - which does exactly the same as the laptop screen - displaying the start-up stuff then blank screen before the login bit. When i start up the laptop in safe mode and VGA mode it works fine. I have tried changin the resolution in these modes to a lower one 600x800 (the refesh rate is set to 60) but this does not solve the problem. I have installed all recommended XP updates, scanned for viruses and spyware but thereâ€™s nothing there, tried to use the troubleshooting tools in Help and Support but not really sure what imdoing and it says everything is fine! sort of hardware failure with my graphics card maybe?! Dont know much about that sort of thing.
I am looking for a screensaver of a type like a moving banner across the display. A banner or flag that can have it texture or background customized from artwork that I choose or have made. If I am not clear, I need to have a picture or artwork I have stored or created on my pc move about the screen in screensaver mode. What should I be looking for?
A few weeks ago it started freezing and restarting randomly. Sometimes, on restarting, I would get the "Serious error" pop-up, which I always sent, and always got different results. Sometimes it would say it was an unknown driver error, sometimes an anti-virus error, once a RAM error. I had just upgraded the RAM when this started, so I ran the M$ testing tool several times, no errors. I also removed the new RAM, which didn't solve the problem, and put it back in
As soon as it starts to run windows setup a blue screen appears and says:A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.The problem seems to be caused by the following file setupdd.sys Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area This is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart you computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps. Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press f8 to select advance startup options, and then select safe modeTechnical Information: *** STOP: 0x00000050 (0xe1607088, 0x00000000, 0xfc44bf3e, ox00000001)
I have got a HP Laptop that is about a year a half old, its top of the range. I had my laptop in Hibernate mode the other night and the next afternoon I went to turn it back on there was a blank screen for a long time, all the lights on the laptop were on but nothing on the screen. I turned the laptop off and then back on again. and BOOM! The blue screen of death!The computer starts up with the HP logo and then it pops up a screen saying that a previous attempt to start up had failed and it gave me options to start up in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, start with the previous successfull start config, and normal start up. When i click ANY of these the windows logo pops up for about 3 seconds and then the blue screen, which appears for long enough for me to read 3 letters or numbers at a time. Then the computer restarts and we go through the whole process again. This is what I have done in the hope of fixing it.
I used my HP retore disks and it loaded disk 1 of 3 and it didnt ask for the other 2 disks which i thought was odd. But that made no differeance still the same start up process as explained above.The blue screen made mention of chkdsk and i read about some poeple on the net doing a chkdsk and it fixing similar problems. So i read that i needed a xp install disk to access the windows recovery console and type r. BUT i have a OEM installation so i have NO disks! So what i did was i got the XP Pro disk i have from a few years ago that i had on Desktop. BUT when it goes into recovery console it can not find any hard drives! #Ive tried spinrite and it reads all the hard drives in the computer so i know that they are still there. #I've tried to find some chkdsk bootable cd's but most are either floppy only or they only for FAT16/32 file systems, my file system is NTFS.I'am convinced from the research done that if I can run CHKDSK on the computer then it should fix the file error and then i can at least back up my data and then do a full format and start fresh again. But I have to be able to get this computer running.I just tried the "Last Known Good Configuration" selection and it says that the system32/config/SYSTEM file is missing.I would welcome any help, as I have exhausted all options that I can see available to me. From what I can see, the biggest problem is that im running a OEM version of windows. But then again the recovery console couldnt find the hard drives, so i dont know.
I was having some problems with windows xp media centre 2005 on my dell dimension 9150 so i decided to do a repair, i put in the xp cd and booted from it at start up, then the blue screen appears and the process starts, i then get the choice to install windows or repair using the recovery console, i chose install windows and then pressed r for repair on the os that was already there.It now has gone to the installation off the os where it installs the files and finalizes the process, it is getting to the third option where it installs devices but it is getting about three quarters of the way and then the driver box pops up saying that microsoft does not athorize the use of the driver would you like to continue but the thing is i cant, my mouse will not move on the screen so i am unable to click continue.
I installed a fresh copy of Windows XP sp2, and just now I've noticed that when I open a movie the blue screen appears.the screen contains the following error:"at the beginning"DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (now this is the error)
My laptop keeps crashing and the dreaded blue screen appears. I've read similar threads on this forum and note that the exact text should be included in threads. So here goes - took me about 15mins to write it all down!A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
My screen just went to blue and states that "Warning spywrae threat detected on your pc" to protect your computer from spyware attacks click here" And then a warning keeps popping up from the active process bar saying "system needs neseccary installation of spyware" When i close the pop-up this web site appears http://total-pc-protection.com/
