W8.1 start screen/side charm occasionally stops working

Q: W8.1 start screen/side charm occasionally stops working

Hey.

I've experienced a problem with windows 8.1 ever since building this pc. Basically, when using my pc, at random times the start menu stops working. I.e, when I click the start button, the menu does not come up, right click does not also work to bring up the power menu. The sidebar does not also appear. I've done a few reformats for various reasons and it's not appeared to have fixed the issue.

Pressing win+x does bring the power menu up, but the start button is still unresponsive after.



The one thing that does fix the issue is restarting explorer.exe from task manager

I'm not sure what causes this issue and was just wondering whether anyone else has experienced this, and if so, any fixes? Is it a glitch in 8.1?


Cheers.

Preferred Solution: W8.1 start screen/side charm occasionally stops working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,
Having a multi-monitor system here I'm finding it overly difficult to bring up the charm bar on the right edge of my primary monitor, it would be substantially easier if I could move it to the left side of my screen and move the new task bar that appears on the left side of my screen over to the right side of my screen (since I personally use it less).

Is there a way to do this, or maybe a way to just have both on the left side of the screen?

I know that I can press the Win+C keys to bring up the charm bar but I'm really not much of a hot key user.

A:Is there a way to move the charm bar to the left side of my screen?

I don't think that's doable. Try moving your cursor to the very bottom of your screen, then move it right until the charms bar appears.

I upgraded my parents' computer a few months ago and installed Win7. Ever since then, they've been having problems w/ the keyboard randomly not working after the computer is rebooted or woken from sleep. I've tried 2 different PS2 keyboards and a USB unit, but the problem persists. Could it be a driver issue, even though it happens on 2 different types of ports?

When you installed Windows 7 what order did you install the drivers, update to the latest service pack and did you update to the latest BIOS?

The recommend order is

A Install os
B Update to latest service pack; for win7 sp1
C Install chipset/mb drivers
D Install sound, nic/lan drivers, etc
E Install video driver lastClick to expand...

Drivers, latest BIOS version etc for your motherboard can be found HERE

Remember to read the motherboards manual about updating the BIOS and follow every step VERY CAREFULLY, mistakes can turn motherboards into doorstops.

To the right of Start Menu locate an empty space on the task bar. Right-click on the task bar and choose Properties. Verify there is no checkmark to the left of "Lock the taskbar:.

Now drag the taskbar to the bottom of the screen (it that is where you want it to live).
After that is completed go back to the Task Bar properties and lock the taskbar.

Hello I am right-handed and I like to have Windows start menu and its components on the Start right the side screen! menu of on bottom right of screen as this is more logically in my view Because we usually use the mouse from the right side and it would be more intuitive to have the control settings on Start menu on the right side of screen! the right side I am also wondering why browsers and other programs don't make it possible to place their menus on the right side or in a right-vertically position At least they can make it an option for right-handed people who prefer such positions So my question is Is it possible to have Windows Start menu on the bottom right-side of screen Also I would like to have the menu bar in firefox on right instead of left Is their any way to make it so Actually I wish to switch reverse the actual left-side positions to righ positions of all my control settings start menu toolbars etc Are such possibilities to have start menu on right available in Linux if so I will switch on for linux for forever

A:Start menu on the right side of screen!

First of why does it matter that you're right handed that the start menu is on the left side of the screen. Just move your mouse over to the left....

I'm not aware that you can change which side the start button is on but I know you can change which edge the whole menu bar is on. Use this is you'd like that. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...ve-the-taskbar

Anyway with linux you can customize your menus however you'd like. The possibilities are endless. I would recommend Ubuntu for your first distro. Ubuntu homepage | Ubuntu

For the last couple of days, while my computer plays anything from the CD drive with sound, occasionally the sound just stops for a couple of seconds, then comes back, where it should be a few seconds later, as if it has been playing all along, and I just turned off my speakers.

...Also, maby un-related, but maby not, I cannot compleat a diskcheck. It gets stuck at 0% on the second stage if you ask it to do one as the computer turnes on.
Is it time to re-install? It would be a pain if it were, but can be done.

Any help?

When it pops up(if you choose to autohide), click an empty space on the taskbar and hold it down. Now, drag it around.

A:Computer stops working at start up

Hello and welcome..I am not too familiar with Pandora or whether ViewpointSource is related to it. Perhaps when you have the fukll or correct error,but later for that.The second error should eaily be fixed with Autoruns.Its not unusual to receive such an error after using specialized fix tools.A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads. To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click HEREif you're not sure how to do this.)Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.Right-click on the entry and choose delete.Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.See if you can scan and posts these logs.. MBAM ans SAS.Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.alternate download link 1alternate download link 2Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process.

A:Start toolbar stops working

If you can I would suggest doing a restore beyond 12/18

You might have a virus or somehting that has found it's way in

I would run an anti-virus sofware and see if that finds anything

Something else that might be the cause is a .dll file. Have you had any problems with files that seem to respawn after you delete them or you just can't delete them?

One last thing, when you open up task manager is there a program or process that seems to be using an unnusually high amount of your CPU?

First of all, I've gotten this on at least 3 different programs. Everyone who's written about this seems to think it's related to their specific program...it's not! Secondly, what I find here in the forum on the subject tells me there has been no solution...also am unable to find any on the 'net'. I think it acts like a virus and is spreading...

Hi, I'm hoping someone here can help me, I was referred to this forum by nasdaq in the malware removal forum to help with some residual problems I've been having with my hp notebook (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/498613/infected-with-virus-appplicunwntwin32adwareibryteh289567536/

The following error is popping up when I try to open certain programs on my computer: "The application failed to load because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.  Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."
 
I am able to access the sxstrace.exe tool but when I try to get the trace to run, I get an error message- "Access is denied" (see above post for screenshots, etc.).  At first I just noticed this happening with my Kindle for PC, but has now graduated to my Dropbox as well.

On startup, I get an intermittent error message that says "Windows Explorer has stopped working" and I have two options, close it or restart it. I restart it and everything seems ok, computer runs with a slight stutter, and also having sound issues, but I think a driver reinstall fixed those. Looked at the reliability history, and the windows explorer related error brings up this information :

I just got a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and I've lost track of the Start page (I guess they call it Metro), the one with Start up on the left and all the tiles, including the one for Desktop...gone.

Also I don't get the Charm Bar with a swipe, or any other movement for that matter. It opens up to a page with 4 tiles: Weather, Media Hub, Music Hub and Game Hub. I can tap to a page with Apps, a bunch of apps, but no Start Page or Charm Bar.

I don't know about this technology thing...

Thanks, oseph4

A:Laptop screen stops working after 20 min of use, and so does external screen

Hi

Sounds like a faulty card or cable, if your able strip the laptop down and find the cable that links the screen to the motherboard, it may be loose, if the graphics card is a plug in type then try reseating it.

Other than that your gonna need a visit to a pc shop....

I have 2 network hardrives attached to my router as central storage. I mapped these drives on my PC and pinned shortcuts to Win 8 Start menu. But everytime I hibernate the PC and come back afterwards, the shortcuts are somehow disconnected to the source. I keep pinning these shortcuts but also keeps getting disconnected after shutting down or hibernating. Any fix on this?

to start IE as administrator and it works. I checked Java and it seems I've installed the right version. I have reset IE but that didn't help either. I've run the IE diagnostic tool but nothing came up and since IE is part of Windows now I can't uninstall
and reinstall it. Is there anything else I could try?

I have a Dell xps 200 media center desktop. When I turn on the computer
it starts up fine until it gets to the welcome screen. The boot stalls there.

A:xp start-up boot stops at welcome screen

First thing, try to boot to safe mode by pressing the F8 key repeatedly, as soon as you turn the power on.

If you can get to safe mode, navigate Start>Run>(type) "cmd", and then type "chkdsk /r" and answer yes to run chkdsk on reboot.

Then, navigate Start>Run(type) MSCONFIG and turn off all the non-microsoft services, and all the startups. Then reboot.

It should run a scan. Pay close attention to the report, and note if it finds errors, and fixes them, or not.

When/if it gets to desktop, it will be in "selective startup".

You can start turning things on, in order to possibly find out if it's an application that causing the problem.

My thinking is that you have some kind of system file corruptions, the question is how & why.

Malware, overheating, bad power supply and hard drive errors come to mind immediately. Trying to figure out why it happened/is happening is the goal.

What is your Anti-Virus solution & Are all your definitions updated ?
What are the specs of your power supply ?
Download & install Speedfan, and report your CPU temp at idle, and under load if possible.
It's also possible your HD is about to go bad. You can download diagnostic utilities at the HD's manufacturer's web-site, and they can tell you if there is/or soon will be a problem with your HD.

I am trying to fix my friends computer which is having several weird issues. When you login everything appears to be normal but Windows loads to a black screen with a cursor. Ctrl + Alt + Del to task manager and I can run explorer.exe to restore the desktop. However the problem now is once your at the desktop all programs when you try to run them pop up with an application failed to run side-by-side configuration is incorrect. these problems are not apparent when the computer is ran in safe mode, but I can not figure out what to do. I checked the registry HKLM software windows nt logon and explorer.exe is the value.
Malwarebytes when ran in safe mode does not detect anything either.

A:windows logs in to a black screen, programs have side by side config

Some possibilities: this application failed to start because side-by-side-configuration is incorrect

Was this computer upgraded from Vista to Windows 7? If so that may be the cause. You can try doing a Repair Install of Windows 7 to see if that corrects the problem.

i just did another clean install and now im trying everything to avoid this goddamn issue but scumbaeg windows just wants to f with me.
i even tried switching to enterprise version of windows

i get this issue where the boot logo (win logo with circle) shows up twice. like once and then the screen goes blank for a sec and then i see that shitty thing again but its laggy this time....
i think this is the problem that finally leads to the start menu disappear thingy..

pls help me. im an android developer and its really frustating !!!!

A:Windows 10 boot logo shows up twice and then start menu stops working

Hi,
Here are a few suggestions:

1.) If this has happened for a long time I wonder how your hardware would react to a different operating system? (Just as a test)
2.) Windows may be slow for any of the following reasons: bad RAM, failing Hard Drive, incorrect or missing drivers for one or more components
3.) Bad or failing Motherboard
4.) There are a number of free tools available which boot from a USB bootable stick that can help you test your RAM, Hard Disk and, in some cases, your MB, too.

Search these forums or the WWW for some of the available tools that you can use to diagnose hardware problems.

Just some ideas that I hope can help.

Has anyone seen this before?
This seems to be happening more and more, I am using my PC (with Windows 8 Pro) as an HTPC and its connected via HDMI to a plasma TV so the PC is always on. Sometimes, when I go to use the pc I turn the TV on and then move the mouse around to turn the display on and I see the attached image, it looks as though the screen has shifted to the right and wrapped around to the other side.
I ran windows 7 with the same hardware on this setup for years without an issue. Any guidance is greatly appreciated.

On my Asus R2H I have build 7057 installed.

Every now and then (I haven't pin pointed if it is a specific event that triggers is) my touch screen stops working as touch screen. It does everything, it only doesn't respond to touch.
If I restart, put the machine to standby, shut down and start it again everything is fine again.

I have no clue what might have been changed recently!

Does somebody recognize this?

Check to see if the touch device is set to allow Windows to turn it off to save power (a usual setting for things like USB slots, NICs, etc.)

So here's the problem: When my laptop gets bumped, sometimes even just the tiniest bit, the screen stops working right. Instead of whatever it was displaying before, it shows a randomly changing pattern of multicolor squares, then the whole computer shuts down. When I turn it on again, everything is back to normal. I suspect it's an issue with a loose connection inside the laptop, but I don't know what to do about it. Thoughts?

I am having an intermittent problem logging into Windows 7 and it seems to be getting worse, so I was hoping someone might be able to help me.
What happens is: After turning on my Computer and selecting my profile. I type my password, then hit Enter on my keyboard to log in. Nothing happens. And if I try to click on the log-in arrow nothing happens either. To fix this I can sometimes click the Switch User button, which will quickly switch to a black screen and then back to the profile chooser(then it sometimes works to log-in), but other times it just displays the log-in background, then I have to restart my computer to try again.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank You,
Tristar

A:Windows 7 Login Screen button stops working

Hello Tristar and welcome to Seven Forums.

Depending on how long you've been experiencing this problem, you might be able to use a restore point to return your computer to a date/time prior to when the problem first began.

System Restore

If you have difficulties logging in you might have better success by accessing Safe Mode through Advanced Boot Options.

Safe Mode

Malware could also cause the problems you're experiencing. If you haven't already done so, do a full scan with your installed anti-malware suite. Since no anti-malware program is 100% effective 100% of the time (if there was such a thing we'd all be using it), I also recommend running full scans with these free products:

Malwarebytes

ESET Online Scanner

Windows Defender Offline (This requires you to make a bootable CD/DVD/Flash drive because it will bypass the usual startup procedure. Best to create the bootable media on a machine that is known to be malware free.)

It's also possible that you might have damaged or corrupt system files. Try running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run th escan 3 times and reboot your computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Please post back if anything helped or not.

A:computer stops working, and screen goes black. Any suggestions?

Hello aaronuws. Welcome to the Forum.

My first thought, as was yours, was overheating. If the 9800 is inside a hard plastic case be sure to blow or vacuum that out carefully.

I think the best way to start would be to simplify. Disconnect all but the minimum needed components of the system and run it for a while just to test to see if the problem remains. That will give a clue about which direction to investigate first.

The usual questions:
Have you made any hardware changes recently? OS changes?
Have installed any new programs (particularly games) recently?
Is the symptom regular and constant (happens every time) or random and occasional?
If a regular occurrence: does it happen after a certain period of time, or is the amount of time random?

Let us know.

Hi, Tech Guy Forums.
A few minutes ago I had to shut down my computer impropery(by holding down the power button) because my computer froze after trying to logging off one of my accounts.(i hope this doenst mean anything)

So I turned my computer back on my pressing the power button again and when I got to the windows welcome login screen I could not type in my password!
My keyboard is not broken, the lights are on, and it was working fine before I had to shut down my computer . I can still enter the boot setup and the keys work in there. It's just when I get to windows login screen it stops working.
I have tried restarting my computer many times that doesn't work. I tried putting my keyboard usb into all the other slots and that doesn't work either.
Help! Is this a virus?
 

A:Keyboard stops working at Windows Login Screen! Help.

While the computer is booting up, try tapping the F8 key. See if the windows advanced options menu, appears. Try selecting "Last known good configuration". Otherwise you can try safemode. If you are able to use the keyboard in safemode, then I would uninstall the keyboard drivers, and let windows reinstall it upon normal bootup.

What was the crash was it a BOSD if so what did it contain. Also What have you tried in detail to solve the problems you are having now?

I also see that you only have SP1 for Windows Vista installed. Perhaps the game needs SP2.

Hey all When I boot my computer I have included my system specs below I occasionally experience a BSOD It's really random when it will happen for example yesterday it took boots to boot correctly Today I have booted it twice and it booted correctly the first time I tried on my first attempt and the second time I tried on my second attempt I have a relatively new system but it hadn't been giving me any issues prior to around days ago when this problem arose Around the time that the BSOD's started I had installed a USB hub into my quot floppy slot and it worked correctly for about a day but when the BSOD's started I unhooked the hub and they continued so I reconnected the hub and it seems to still be working correctly Other than that I haven't made any hardware changes and only light software changes in about two months My system is completely stable when it is actually running and I haven't had any crashes or BSOD's start-up on occasionally BSOD since the boot BSOD's started but it's getting increasingly annoying to need such a BSOD occasionally on start-up variable amount of time to start my system and I am also starting to get worried that I might damage my hardware OS - Windows x Original OS installed on the system was windows XP service pack I purchased a full retail version everything is new about months old except for the hard drive and case which is about years old but it hasn't given me any problems in the past Installed Windows OS about months ago had some trouble with the boot disc but i've only ever clean installed once over windows XP service pack Video Card- AMD Athlon II X processor without the fourth core unlocked CPU- ATI Radeon series Motherboard - MSI GT-E Power Supply - Turbolink watts I should have attached the other necessary files to figure out what is going wrong with my system Thanks a lot for the help I will be checking this thread diligently Edit I forgot to mention that all of my hardware remains at factory settings and I haven't even tried overclocking

A:BSOD occasionally on start-up

Hi,

For some reason the collection application did not pick up any BSOD minidumps (it does this occasionally). Can you check C:\Windows\Minidump and upload anything you find there.

If there is nothing there and you have definitely got bluescreens then can you check the settings mentioned in this post to see if your system is set up correctly to collect dump files when it Blue Screens.

From your event logs I can see that you have had 10 recorded BSODs in the past 2 days alone!

I did manage to track down some data on at least 2 of those BSODs

Code:

7/19/2010 8:50 PM Event Name: BlueScreen Analysis symbol: X64_0x50_usbccgp!DispatchPdoPnp+339


7/21/2010 11:03 PM Event Name: BlueScreen Analysis symbol: X64_0x7E_usbccgp!UsbcReleaseRemoveLock+35

Note which driver is mentioned? usbccgp.sys

Code:

Module Name: usbccgp
Display Name: Microsoft USB Generic Parent Driver
Link Date: 7/13/2009 6:06:45 PM

As this is a Microsoft Driver it is unlikely to be the true cause.

The mention of a USB driver and the fact that they started occurring only after you installed the new hub make me pretty suspicious of that hub and what it might have done to your motherboard.

Remove that hub now and hopefully the problems do not continue (if they do make sure you collect the minidump as they contain more accurate troubleshooting information than the rest of the files)

Regards,
Reventon

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!
You have two anti-virus programs running, which will cause trouble. Uninstall one of them.
You might also consider turning off Windows Sidebar to see if this is causing the problem.

I recently started getting very annoying problem. Firefox or other program stops responding and alt+ctrl+del stops working at the same time so I have to reboot. It happens quite often.

What I did already:
*Maybe virus? Full boot time system scan with Avast anti-virus. Nothing found.
*Oh well reinstall windows again... Yes, I did that too. Still same problem BUT ONLY after small break like two days or so.
And most confusing thing is that full screen programs like games do not seem to stop responding. Still, they BSOD like after few hours, but I do not think it is related. Like heavy load or something.

My system details hopefully in my forum profile, at least filled them recently.

So any other ideas how I can fix that?

Hi
I've a two week old PC with Windows 7 64 bit pro. 7 times in last two weeks it has crashed when I;ve powered it on and entered Start up repair and then System restore after which it works ok. Nothing seems to cause it. In Event viewer it shows as Kernel Power id 41 Event 63.

Supplier is saying after expensive phone call it is a software problem and I should reinstall operating system. Seems drastic and time consuming. Any Ideas anyone??

Thanks

My Windows 10 seems to be fine, except for the mail app inbox and notifications.

I have checked all the settings, but they must be correct anyway, because occasionally, an email arrives correctly in the inbox and I get a notification correctly. Then the next few just don't arrive, but interestingly, when I click on "All mail" they are all there.

I have removed my (GMail) account and then reinstated it, but that made no difference.

I have tried to uninstall the app using Powershell, but it asked me for "parameters" and I didn't know what to do at that point.

Any ideas, please, as to how to make the inbox and related notifications work correctly?

Had the 'new' parts been used by your friend? If not there should be a warranty to you but if they had been used there may be a warranty to your friend. It's my experience that adding in used parts changes the 'playing field' and diagnosing where the problems are becomes more difficult. I've seen a number of computers that didn't play well with Sleep and Hibernate, sometimes only took an adjustment in Power Options to help, other times nothing helped but turning Sleep and Hibernate off.

I have Intel Rapid Technology set up on a ASRock Fatal1ty H97 Performance LGA 1150 Motherboard with Windows 7.

Around 70% of the time it works as it should - turning the PC off physically turns it off - and upon booting the computer up it comes out of a hibernation type, booting the PC in seconds. As it is a media player PC, I turn it on with the 'on' function on a USB remote.

Around 30% of the time the on button on the remote does not work and I need to press the on button on the case. The PC then boots into the BIOS (without prompt). If I hit the reset button the computer boots normally.

It would be really appreciable if any one could solve my issue..

Fresh reinstall of the OS and the problem still exists. I assume since I ran the graphics card fan at 100% and it blue screened at 65 degrees (did not happen during Bf3 beta), that maybe my power supply needs to be upgraded or I should sell this one and buy a new computer. 600 watt power supply btw.

Some reasons for Blue Screens
New hardware - software installed.
Device driver - Video driver - corrupted - faulty.
Faulty Ram - Overheating - Dying hard drive etc.
======
Post the Minidump files
Create a new folder on the desktop and call it dumpfiles [or something similar]

Look in c:\windows\minidump
Copy the last 4 minidump files to that folder.
Close the folder and right click on it and select Send To Compressed [zipped] Folder.
Windows will compress the file and then save the new zipped file in the same location.

Use the 'Manage attachments' in the 'Go Advanced' reply window below to upload that zip file here as an attachment.

Occasionally, the screen gets erratic.  Opens and closes windows and programs.  Resizes windows and text.  If I close all open windows, there are little white 'bubbles' in the bottom center of the screen that move up and down as if the screen is being touched.This has been a problem since I purchased the laptop, but I haven't been able to find a solution.I seldom use the touch screen anymore because of this.  And I try to avoid the touch pad also.   But even when using a mouse, the problem occurs.    It's very random and I cannot reproduce the problem.Auto HP updates are on and all software and drivers should be current.Internet connection is wireless.Purchased laptop in Aug 2015 with Windows 10 pre- installed.   All Win10 updates are current.I've searched HP Support but cannot find this problem mentioned.

So I recently installed briefly. screen black occasionally One (Dual monitor) goes windows and got some issues with a screen going black for - seconds pretty randomly From what little pattern I've experienced it occasionally occurs when closing and opening tabs in Opera haven't tested with other browsers One screen (Dual monitor) occasionally goes black briefly. or other tab based software Mostly because of the randomness of when it happens it will be sort of difficult First I thought of graphic driver which is why I posted this here however there is one thing that have me slightly doubting that assumption I run dual monitors and only the one monitor in which the browser was placed had the black screen The other screen is perfectly fine on and not black Surely a driver problem of the graphic card such as a restart of the driver would blank out both screens I'm wondering if it could be some metro interference or something like that Anyone experienced anything similar with any idea how to sort it out Its nothing more then annoying but in the long run that will get bothersome PS Yes I have checked the wiring

Seems like any time I put any real load on my computer such as the games I enjoy I run into problems.

Problems: The game I am running frequently goes to "Not Responding" mode then comes back after a minute or two, only to repeat later. During this time any applications I switch to also go into "Not Responding" mode for awhile.

Occasionally the computer Black Screens and/or Restarts on its own. It does a disk check which takes forever.

Not sure if this is related but I noticed my System Rating Score dropped from 7.4 to 7.2 in the Component Categories of Graphics and Gaming Graphics. Even though my hardware is still the same. It is possible the 7.4 score was taken when crossfire was enabled.

I think you have got a hardware issue, because you computer gives you BSOD when it gets load.

Hello,I have had this problem ever since I purchased the laptop.  The screen will go black/blank, but the backlight will still be on.  Can't do anything and have to turn off and restart.  It happens about once an hour or so.  Originally it happened less frequently/more when the power supply was not connected.  Now it happens regardless if the power supply is connected.  I also have text distortion on the screen at times.  I have tried to update display drivers/downgrade drivers, nothing has worked for me.  Really starting to get annoying.  Any suggestions?Thanks, Ginger4
