Monitor Screen Display Jumps In & Out on Sides

Q: Monitor Screen Display Jumps In & Out on Sides

I've had my Compaq Presario SR1250NX for 1 1/2 years. It's a Pentium 4 using Windows XP. My monitor is a 17" flat screen (not panel).

About 2 weeks ago the monitor screen display started jumping in and out on both sides.

I set the refresh rate to its highest setting (85) and that helped but did not stop it, it just made it less frequent from happening every minute to every several minutes.

Nothing has changed in my home office electronically. My phone and cell phones are the same they've always been sitting in the same places. I haven't added any programs to my computer, just normal updates as they occur.

What could this be? What should I do next?


A: Monitor Screen Display Jumps In & Out on Sides

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Sounds like a monitor problem to me.

You need to try another monitor to confirm this.

When searching Google, I found that several people have had this problem, but never found a solution. It doesn't do it all the time, seems to quit just as randomly as it starts. I am using a Logitech cordless mouse & keyboard.

This should be an easy fix, I just do not know where to get the CCC for my computer. I have an Intel i3 Processor and an ATI Radeon HD 5670 Graphics card. Last time I tried to download the CCC it said I did not have any AMD software to be detected. I just want to get rid of these stupid black bars.

Note: I am running windows 7 professional off a bootcamp partition on a mid 2010 iMac. Windows 7 runs fine though.

Turning on HDMI 3rd monitor screws up the Display 1 & 2 which are VGA and DVI

I usually have Skype open and 2 browsers. Monitor 1 on DVI for work and monitor 2 is VGA for facebook Twitter and that kind of stuff and Skype under the browser on monitor 2 and monitor 3 is on a second/separate video card hooked up to HDMI used for music videos and cctv cameras.

As of lately when I turn on the HDMI monitor all the programs switch sides.

Skype will move from the lower right side of monitor 2 over to the lower right side f monitor 1
The browser thats on monitor 2 will switch over to monitor 1 and the browser that was on monitor 1 will swap sides from monitor 1 over to #2.

The 3rd monitor is sometimes used for music videos but currently it is hooked up to a CCTV DVR on the DVR VGA hookup so it even does this when the TV (Monitor 3) is not on HDMI mode for the computer.

I can turn monitors 1 and 2 on and off 1000 times and nothing will happen but as soon as I turn on the HDMI everything swaps sides.

Why would powering on HDMI display do this and how can I stop open programs from swapping sides on monitor 1 & 2 when I turn on the TV (Monitor 3) even if its not in HDMI mode when powered on?

How do I fix this and how do I figure out what size my monitor is?

Hi guys, I have a quick question regarding some games I am trying to play. I just got a new laptop, it's a cheapo - Asus K200MA, 11.6" screen, running Windows 8.1. No graphics card or anything, but it's powerful enough to play older games. I am trying to play Half Life and Elderscrolls 3 Morrowind but I have the same problem with each game. When I start the game I have black margins, approx. 1 inch on both sides of the screen, so it's not displaying in full screen mode. I have tried some fixes like going to screen resolution/advanced/IntelHD Graphics Control Panel/Maintain Display Scaling but it doesn't work. I am not sure if this is a problem with my monitor or with windows 8.1. It's a generic monitor so it doesn't have a lot of options. I've searched for a while but can't find any solutions online. Can anyone help? Thanks so much.


A:Games won't play in full margins on both sides

The only thying I can think of is that your gaming res isnt set to your native desktop res. I know that you said you have looked at this, bu tI suggest checking, see what your desktop res is, and make sure that games have the same setting. I play HL and dont get black margins, so I know that it will run properly.

A:Screen display does not fit the monitor

Hi Woronora - Unfortunately, you have left out a great deal of information. Dual monitor setup is easy enough, but a walk-through how to can be a bit much. Here is a link for basic info:
Here are some additional questions: Are your displays setup as clones, or extended desktop? What version of Operating system are you using? Exactly what does minimized and not utilizing the entire monitor mean? If the display is actally showing but not quite full screen, have you attempted to Auto-Adjust the monitor? (May need to Google Auto Adjust (Monitor Make & Model)). Which Display number has the Task Bar on it? Is that Display the Left or the Right? Hope the link helps, please give us more to go on if not.

got an old PC running XP SP3 which normally works fine but a few weeks back the display started jumping up and down the screen (as if somone is going mad with the vertical scroll). It does it in IE8 and when using Photoshop elements when displaying thumbnails of photos.

I noticed the PC has a single DDR2 PC3200 512Mb memory chip, but when you look in My Computer - Properties it only shows 384Mb ram.

Is it possible the chip is faulty and causing the dispaly problems? I tried reseating the ram but it made no difference.

Any suggestions welcome.



A:XP: application display jumps

If the computer you are running has integrated graphics (that is, it doesn't have a separate graphics card), then that may account for the missing memory. Video cards have memory on the card itself, but integrated graphics usually don't have any memory of their own, so the system reserves a certain amount of RAM specifically for the GPU, 128 MB in your case.

As for the jumping display, I would check your mouse drivers (touchpad drivers if it is a laptop) and try updating them to see if that fixes the problem.

Been having this problem for awhile now and it's driving me crazy. My desktop and most porgrams that I run on my computer all run a bit past the right and bottom edges of the monitor screen. Strangely enough, things like my Netscape and IE browsers don't seem to run over when maximized, and my toolbar seems ok as well. I'm running Windows XP on a Compaq Presario 5012US with a Nvidia GeForce4 MX 420 video card. The screen resolution I'm currently using is 800x600, and adjusting this setting up or down does nothing to fix the problem. I just updated the drivers for my video card, and windows is up to date as well. I'm totally stumped on this. Awhile back I was having bigger problems with my display when I was also running my TV as a second monitor, but I no longer have the TV connected, and aside from this current problem everything seems to be working fine. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Oh, almost forgot, I'm running a NEC MultiSync XV17 monitor also.

Hi all

I'm newbie and have just joined this forum and am hoping someone can help.
I've just purchased a LCD Samsung monitor (was using old standard monitor previously). My problem is the screen display does not cover the full screen and only covers the middle portion of the screen. The LCD monitors are longer than normal monitors, but the screen display is still the same as with a normal monitor. The sides are blacked out.

I've tried going into screen and display properties and playing with the buttons on the monitor itself. I've also been through the user cd, but there is nothing covering this topic.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Dell E207WFP Flat Panel monitor on a Dell Dimension E520 computer with TONS of memory and which is about a year and a half old. It has been working absolutely fine until Sunday - my son left the computer on overnight, and when he went to turn it off the next morning there was a blue screen error but I couldn't read it because the letters were all jumbled. I turned off the computer, let it sit for about 10 minutes, then it turned it on again and now it won't even bring up Windows. It's just a blank screen, and then the Auto-Detect comes on and puts it in power save. I was thinking it was the monitor or graphics card but now I'm worried it's something worse.

I've been trying to troubleshoot from another computer, and it's been frustrating since OF COURSE the troubled computer is no longer under warranty, and Dell's tech sites told me to check this and check that, but since I can't even get Windows to start up I'm at a loss.

I'm wondering if as a starting point I should try to reinstall Windows? Or try to boot up from the disk?

Can anyone help me?

A:No display on monitor after blue screen

The monitor seems to be working but not getting video. Is there more than one video jack? Your video card may be imbedded in the mother board and/or there could be a stand alone video card. Try other monitor jacks if available.

Next, If you can put another video card from the other PC in this would be a good first step in trouble shooting. When you put a video card in the slot it should recognize it automatically and hopefully bring you video.

When the pc powers up can you hear the hard drive spin up? The BSOD (blue screen of death) was likely caused by system failure (nothing your son did ) I'm thinking the jumbled video on the screen when you encountered the problem is a good sign that the video card is the culprit.

I just bought a second hand Philips 170C flatscreen monitor off eBay.

My previous 15" NEC MultiSync LCD 1560NX works fine. So no issues with graphics card or pc.

I have tried both the proper display driver and the default plug and play - no difference to the problem.

Problem - When I put up a white screen there is a pink cast over the screen which is more evident towards the edges and stronger at the top left.

This particularly effects light greys on the screen, but all clours seen affected.

I've played around with the colours but because the problem is not even over the screen - I can't fix it.

Could this be down to a backlighting fault?

Any help from you tech wizards would be very much appreciated.

A:Flat Screen Monitor Display Problem

More to the point is that the LCD element took a strong hit somewhere and is out of alignment - ya can't bounce these things!

The backlight is simply a white flourecent bulb, and won't cause color missplacement, unless its what's loose and is pressing the LCD element somehow.

How was it packed when it arrived? There's a reason why the manufacturer inserts these screens in a foam sleeve when shipping, and this is it.

You can't. Whenever you open a desktop app, it will close the Start screen.

Okay guys i have a puzzling one for you... I'm running my trusty Emachines E527 with Windows 8 RP. I was playing Minecraft on an external monitor (a TV) and I get a blue screen... no biggie I've dealt with these before. I do a hard reset and turn my computer back on and I don't get an image on my laptop screen. I take a flashlight to my screen ( I've had back light issues before thought it might happen again) and nothing... no image or anything. I decided to take it apart and use a voltage tester on the inverter to see if it's even sending power to it and I don't get a reading anywhere. Furthermore no external monitor hookup will display an image either

This must be a software error... though I don't get a boot splash either..

This one is beyond me.. someone on another forum suggested clearing the cmos. I only have a battery in there on my motherboard but it is soldered to the board itself... kinda hard to clear...

I leave on vacation tonight and I need my laptop so any help would be greatly appreciated....

Keep turning and cycle through the control icons for width, height, brightness, etc. Press the button, activate an icon.

Hi, new user here!

I have an issue with one of my monitors and/or my graphics cards (and/or Windows 10, just to complicate things).

I have been happily using Windows 10 with a dual screen set up for months, and both my screens have been plugged into my external graphics card. At the beginning, the graphics drivers (Nvidia Geforce) conflicted with the stupid Windows 10 auto updates resulting in double black screen, but I was able to sort it out by plugging one of the monitors into the internal graphics display and have had a stable system for over a month.

Yesterday Windows 10 insisted on downloading an update and crashed the whole thing. No problem, I plugged the main monitor into the internal, uninstalled what the Windows graphic drivers and refreshed the system as I had done previously. The second monitor came on and I restarted the computer to allow me to replug the main monitor into the external graphics card.

No luck. The main monitor remained off, even though the second monitor was clearly working on the external graphics card. The device manager said all the graphics cards were working with no conflicts.

I have tried every combination possible now. I have deleted and reinstalled the graphics drivers several times. I have tried the main display in both the external graphics card ports, but it will only display (in terrible low resolution) on the internal graphics card. The second monitor works in every slot (in good resolution), the main monitor will only work on ... Read more

This one, the main one displays 'no signal' I've been using it for a couple months no problem working fine and a couple of days ago while on my computer it just displayed 'no signal' while my monitor on the left (vga) stayed on working perfect.
But the computer recognized the monitor still being visible as I can move things to it and when I access it on 'chrome remote desktop' on my phone you can see that it's still being displayed (picture attached below) click here and the other pic below is what I see irl, sorry for the bad lighting it's late here.

-Yes the HDMI cable works as it works with my PS4 and the PS4 Hdmi cable also tested on it with no results
-Yes the monitor works, I plugged in the VGA and it displays, I also plugged in the PS4 over hdmi and it displays my PS4 no problem
- And I also replaced the 'mini hdmi adapter' and that hasn't fixed it.

When I connect my Dell XPS 13 9350 laptop with QHD display to an external monitor through the DA200 USB-C to HDMI connector the external monitors flicker constantly (laptop is fine-no flickering). Sometimes it works for like an hour then starts to flicker or longer so its not consistent. Below are the troubleshooting steps Dell has walked me through (including sending me a new DA200 part) to no avail:
- Dell has sent me a new DA200 USB C to HDMI part
- They have upgraded the Thunderbolt drivers and all other relevant drivers to latest ones (as of June 15 2016)
- I have tried on different monitors (5-6) and tried different HDMI cables.
Dell doesnt seem to know what to do now. THey have refunded my DA200 part purchase and told me to buy a separate HDMI to USB-C cable to test. If that fails it seems they will replace the motherboard. They say it could be an issue with the external monitors not being compatible with QHD, but this is not documented anywhere (they admit) and I havent heard anyone else having this problem on the internet and surprised every single person using this setup has QHD external monitors. This is an unworkable situation for me as I work in PC labs all day connected to external monitors.
Any advice?

My laptop Dell Inspiron 15R 5520(Core i3 2370M 6GB ram win 7 64bit)  worked perfectly from Nov2012-April2016. 

Now the screen started flickering and jumping since a few days and there's a white dotted line that appears along the top of the screen that starts the minute there is any kind of display.
How do I figure out if the inverter on the screen is faulty or if it's the screen cable or the whole screen itself?
To satisfy my curiosity I opened up my laptop to find that the lcd cable was badly crushed under the screen hinge (definitely , a design/manufacturing issue! Will dell take responsibility?), and each time the screen was shut/open there was substantial pressure on the cable was what I noticed.
Unfortunately I'm out of warranty and I don't know what to do.
Please advise on fixing this issue.

A:Laptop screen jumps


Is the problem the same no matter what browser you use? If so, I had that problem when I was on an older computer, and my fix was to clean the keyboard. The spacebar was stuck partway down (young children eating at the computer -_-) and that made the webpage keep jumping. Try hitting the spacebar hard a few times, then try cleaning it (w/ compressed air, turning it upside down and shaking it, or by taking it apart).

I hope this helps.

I noticed something similar happening in my previous laptop using Vista, but in Windows 7 it's almost unusable.

As I'm typing the cursor will change positions either on the application (to another area of same application), or will jump to another document.

At times I'll start to highlight something in Word to delete it, and as I hit "delete" the cursor switches to another part of the document, highlighting another paragraph and deleting it instead of what I was trying to delete.

At other times I see the cursor leave the document, go to one of the icons of another application at the bottom of the screen. Just as I hit "return" the cursor is now in another document and that document comes up on the screen instead of the one I was using.

At first I was losing whole documents. But then I got smart enough to realize that they had been closed, or stuck somewhere, and I eventually could find them instead of losing all of the work I had done.

I've been composing emails and suddenly the email disappears. It was sent before I finished composing it.

This happens about one every minute or so, and sometimes even more often.

I can see the hourglass pop up on the screne as I move the mouse. When it pops up either the screen zoom changes, screen size changes, or jumps off to one of the other icons as I mentioned above.

It looks to me as if the operating system is doing something else at those times, and if I'm going very fast (I type at about 100 wpm ... Read more

A:Cursor Jumps all over screen

Hi Alan and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

This could be down to the sensitivity of your mousepad. As well as operating on a touch principal, some can operate capacitively if the sensitivity is high enough. To check this, try switching the mousepad off altogether and plug in an external mouse. It's very rare that I use a laptop, but on the ocassions that I have I found that the cursor moved without my intention simply because my wrist must have been moving over the mousepad.

I was just wondering what would cause my screen to jump/shake.
At first I thought maybe it was just my eyes but now I know it's not. It has done this in the past and seemed to get better until last night. It doesn't jump when the page is loading only once the page has fully loaded, I notice it seems to jump or shake almost like a pulse. And it is the whole IE screen. At first I thought maybe the monitor but then it would get worse not happen for a bit then get better.
Just wondering what could cause this and if there might be a solution.

I am running Windows 7 on AMD Processor (I will get exact specs when I'm not rushing to get ready for church lol) and yesterday my screen started jumping every now and then. I have also been having issues with my mouse and keyboard being interrupted from sending the wireless signal to the system and sometimes letters I have typed don't make it on the screen, or I can move the mouse but nothing happens when I click. At times, it seems my computer is working all on it's own, when I haven't run any program, and at times will slow down response time in the program I am working on. I have Panda Cloud AV and running AdAware. I have run both and neither show any issues, that they can find.

I have recently signed up for NetFlix (3 or 4 days ago)and was wondering if there might be a correlation to what is happening. Any suggestions are welcome and I appreciate the input.

XP64 SP2, 2X Dual Core, 8GB RAM, GeForce 8800GTS. Running Unreal III, an annoying problem with the aim popping straight up or to the side periodically at the most inopportune when I'm about to be killed. I just figured it was some setting in Unreal, that I'd eventually get to, since I hardly used it for gaming.

Well, the old win2k machine doesn't cut it anymore for modern games, so the Xp64 machine is doing gaming duty. It now also occurs on Call of Duty Modern Warfare2, single player and multi. I've changed video and mouse settings till I can't think of another thing to try. All mouse smoothing and acceleration is off, as is Vsync. Would like very much to get this resolved, any help is appreciated. This is a workstation primarily used for 3D Graphics, but I love my gaming too. I also run driving and flying sims as well, no problems there. Only apps where you're looking/aiming with the mouse seem to be affected. Even side-to-side looking in the driving/flying sims are not affected. I have no frame rate or mouse deceleration type problems, only the jumping. It's very intermittent, say, once every 2 or 3 minutes. I can give more info as required, and follow any technical or configuration advise.

A:Mouse pointer jumps all over the screen

TechSupport Gurus: Would you believe this . . . ???? Just as I sent the previous message (with the HijackThis info) to your forum, there was a knock on my door and a neighbor presented me with a package containing my long-awaited Microsoft Basic USB Optical mouse. It had been mis-delivered to his address by FedEx. If I had only received it a minute earlier, I would not have sent my previous message or now be writing this message!!! I immediately removed my old mouse from its PS/2 socket and plugged in the new mouse to the USB port and BEHOLD!!! The mouse was detected and my pointer jumping problem is gone!!!!

My theory is that some recent Microsoft update (all of which I download and install religiously) made the assumption that _all_ mice at this stage of the Windows game is either a USB mouse or at least is a wheel-mouse. So (I think) the problems I was having was just a mouse function that was looking for a wheel to twirl when there was none. Whatever, I'm back where I want to be. Thank you for being there for folks like me when we need you! Where else could we turn? Thanks again!!!

I have a lenovo think pad x220 tablet using on a wireless network, if I am not constantly moving the mouse pointer (regardless if I use the touch pad or a mouse) it will suddenly jump to a different point on the screen, opens programs on its own. It took a long time to write this message due to the cursor jumping off the typing area. When i place the cursor back to whatever I am doing, a little picture of a keyboard comes up. When the computer is sitting idle it even occurs, you can watch the mouse pointer disappear and reappear in a different spot on the screen. It highlights desktop icons, opens programs. I am starting to wonder if someone has a remote connection and is messing with me. Sometimes it happens quickly and other times slower, it is worst when I first turn on the computer.

Right out of the blue, windows 8 loaded up painfully slow so i restarted my HP g6 laptop.

It is continous and you can't access anything as the screen jumps to the other one before you can even do anything!
My laptop is only a few months old and there has been no hardware change/upgrade.
I managed to get into the system restore and restored to a point a few days before this issue started but, when the laptop restarted, the issue remain and the screen jumped between the 2 screens.
There are no error msgs or any can of beeps that appear. There was nothing of any note that happened prior to this issue occurring and the laptop worked fine until this issue.
Tried searching google & forums regarding this issue but it doesn't seem to be a well known issue at all.

Hi. I often have multiple tasks open, and frequently toggle (task shift) back and forth between applications as part of my daily job routine. I've been moved to a new desk, and am irritated by the fact that whenever I type Alt+Tab to switch tasks (toggle), my mouse pointer immediately moves to the center of the screen. This happens every time I switch tasks using Alt+Tab. It isn't conducive to the type of work I do, and I would like to have the mouse pointer stay still instead of involuntarily jumping to the center of the screen over and over again.

I have asked Windows Support, as well as IT at my job, and no one knows how to fix this. There must be something in the preferences to change this, right?

I looked at the machine and it functioned fine after several reboots, but eventually I was able to see some strange results. I didn't see the multiple windows open, but I did have some input issues. The mouse pointer would jump all over the screen and applications would open that were never clicked. The right click did not function correctly. Sometimes the context menu would flash on and off and sometimes nothing. I tried an alternate mouse and using a different USB port with identical results. I have run virus scans, malware scans and a registry scan, but no dice.

Anyone have any ideas. I am stumped.

A:Mouse pointer jumps on the screen and the right-click not functioning

It does sound like malware to me, you could try this; USB Driver - General Fix for Problems[2]=Hardware%20and%20Drivers it may be of help if different mice are used on this machine.
Maybe trying an online scanner would help or this;

On my all-in-one pc, I can be trying to open an app or surf the internet and all of a sudden its like someone touched the screen somewhere else and my cursor moves to that spot.  If I wait, the screen will touch in different locations around the screen eventually locking in at the top left corner.  If I try to move the cursor away, it moves a bit and then snaps back to the top left please, my pc is effectively useless. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

My Dell Insipron 6400 laptop will not support multiple monitors. I think I may not have a key driver installed. Help!!

I have attached two separate images, screen shot of my device manager and display properties and a screen shot of the same image on my mothers PC. (which is also a Dell Inspiron 6400)

On my PC, In my device manager I can not view the display adapters (there must be something installed and I do not have visiblilty?? correct??)

Also, on my display properties I do not even have the option for Multiple monitor support. (these are the same PC's)

I inserted my Drivers and Utilities CD from Dell, but I did not see any driver on there that was applicable to a display adapter.

Am I on the right track???

Hello folks,

I seem to be having multiple problems all at the same time (all of which may or may not be related) but let me start from the beginning.

This all started when I tried to connect my Inspiron 1720 laptop to our television. For some reason my laptop froze, the image on both my computer and TV had white lines across it, and so I turned off my system since it was locked up.

I restarted and began having display problems - first windows were not opening in the desktop area. They would open in the system tray, but were "unreachable" by the mouse. I played with display settings and got the screen to fit...but now seem to have 2 primary problems:


Whenever I play games, view pictures, or Windows Media Player, I see strange "plaid boxes." However, the desktop is fine and everything else appears to work fine. I contacted NVIDIA and I have installed different driver versions, as well as the OEM (Dell's) driver's - all did not work - I still saw the distorted images when playing games, viewing pictures, and videos.

I have also completed System Restore's to points prior to when I was having the problem - unfortunately that did not work.

Here are screenshots of what I am seeing:


This problem may stem from the original TV incident. When I click on Displa... Read more

A:Vista Display Problem (display driver and/or multiple-monitor related)

The first set of pictures that you put up look like classics examples of bad video RAM. In a desktop PC I would tell you to swap out the video card with a differnt one to verify that is the issue since in a few cases bad drivers can cause the issue but it's highly unlikely. Professional service by a local non big box computer shop is your best bet at this point.

My Windows 7 Home Premium on a Lenovo B540 Desktop can't seem to load past the login screen (like literally the screen with the user accounts).

When i click on any of my 5 user accounts on the login screen, the screen is left with the background image of the login screen, then after a couple of seconds jumps back to the login screen with the 5 accounts again. I don't even progress to be able to type in my password as the password prompt doesn't appear at all.

Hope to be able to resolve it ASAP, there's impt data inside ><

Thank you!!

I have a Benq FP7IE+ monitor that has suddenly stopped working. Here's the breakdown:

-when you turn the monitor on when hooked to a computer it will sometimes show the display for a brief moment (ie. showed HP booting screen at startup) and than stops displaying, but the blue light stays on the unit as if it is receiving a display. Other times it will display nothing at all, but the blue light stays on.

-with the blue light on if you attempt to press any of the menu buttons on the monitor itself again nothing is displayed.

-I don't believe that it's a refresh rate or driver issue even though I reinstalled the driver and hooked the monitor to PC running in safe mode and still no display (even though the blue light stays on).

-not the VGA cable, tried another, same result.

-hooked monitor to PC with the identical monitor working on it, same result, no display.

-if you unplug the power cord from the monitor and then plug back in and power back on it will always show the "Benq - Energy Star Qualified Monitor" screen as bright as ever, but then nothing is display even though blue light stays on.

-tried monitor on 3 different computers, no display on any of them.

Any idea what might be causing this? I apologize for being so long winded, but I wanted to include as many details as possible.

Tonight I was playing a good old game. I minimized to my desktop while the game was running and pulled open Windows calculator, did some calculator stuff, but then the computer goes into a blue error screen and then restarts. A few moments later, the display on my monitor suddenly turns off as if it were put to sleep. And even if I turn it off cold and restart the computer, nothing appears on the display at all, not even a BIOS logo screen. So weird.

System specs:
AMD E-350 Processor x2 (1.6Ghz)
4GB RAM (upgraded from OEM default 2GB)
500GB Hard Drive
GRAPHICS: AMD Radeon HD 6310
Acer (eMachines)-EL1360G UW12P
bundled with eMachines brand monitor/speakers

A:Monitor display suddenly turns off, can't get the display back

You can try:

- Remove the power cord of monitor and PC for a minute. Not just shut down.
- Clear CMOS if you don't mind reconfiguring the BIOS

Hi, I've only recently begun having problems a few days ago with my cursor/mouse where the cursor will sometimes lose focus of the currently active window or the explorer bar (and I have to ctrl+alt+del to gain the focus back because clicking doesn't work). The same thing happens with flash based objects like WheatherSpark or the youtube player, and I have to switch programs and back to firefox to be able to manipulate the youtube player or in VLC where I can't manipulate the player at all and the only way for me to change the sound is to use the scroll wheel (and even then the sound gets randomly changed as if the scroll wheel is being used. I can't change the timeline of the file at all and I cant click on the buttons on the interface, although the file menu works).

I originally thought it was my mouse acting up so I re-installed all the drivers and tried updating to no effect and the same behaviour happens when I turn my mouse off and unplug the bluetooth reciever.

Im using a wireless optical mouse (ROCCAT Pyra) on Win7 Pro x64

ps: I already tried searching but noone seems to have a similar problem
