Customer Question
Using Windows 7 my screens...
Using Windows 7 my screens will begin flashing and there's no way to stop it except for task master to kill the application. Most common is using Outlook to send an e-mail I try to attach a file and when I bring up explorer to select the file all screens (Outlook, e-mail, explorer, begin to alternatly flash and the screen cannot be exited.
I've run McAfee virus scans, installed latest Windows 7 updates and re-booted many times.
Suggestions?
Thanks,

Hello


 

Robert Preston :

What do you mean by flashing?

Robert Preston :

Could you elaborate?

Customer:

Blinking, intermittant on\off. All open screens do it.

Robert Preston :

So you mean it's like the monitor is blinking?

Robert Preston :

Like to black and back?

Customer:

Yes. But each open screen does it at alternate times.

Customer:

They blink/flash pretty fast like 1 second each so there's no visible black since the screens are on top of each other.

Customer:

Gotta go. My e-mail address is [email protected]

Customer:

Thanks

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
