Jumping Screen

by dmeeks / September 6, 2008 5:39 AM PDT

Hi ... I have a PC using Windows XP. I have a 17" LCD Samsung and wireless mouse. IE7, For some reason, when I try to on the "Address" bar to type in a URL, the screen jumps up and down quickly. I have to click 2 - 3 times to get it to stop but even then sometimes its difficult to click on a pull-down or enter a URL.

Can anyone give me any ideas?

See if there might be new drivers for the mouse ...

as wireless mice/keyboards have been known to be the underlying cause of such things.

Also check to ensure that you do not have any other wireless devices (such as telephones) that may be causing interference.

Wow Edward! Thanks!

This has been bugging me for months and I was really going crazy! I switched to a wire mouse and it worked fine. My wireless router is about 2 feet from the mouse so it's possible that was doing it, but I don't care I just got ride of it. <smile>

Thanks! ... Dan

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
