  • Hi,

    When did this issue begin to occur?

    Please make sure the system is updated and the display card driver is updated.

    In case it is due to conflict with third party software, let us try the following troubleshooting steps.

    Certain things you can try are to find out the root cause of the problem are given below.
     
    1.  Have a look whether you can reproduce the problem in safe mode.
     
    Start your computer in safe mode
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Start-your-computer-in-safe-mode
     
    If behavior doesn’t persist in safe mode, it indicates that a third party program or service is preventing you from performing the action as supposed to.
     
    To validate or determine which service/startup item could be causing this, restart the computer and boot to desktop normally. Once done, perform clean boot.
     
    2.  Clean Boot prevents software conflicts by preventing the startup items and non Microsoft services from loading. This way you can safely follow the process of elimination to check which application is causing this behavior.

    Note: Ensure that you put your computer back to normal startup mode after completing the troubleshooting steps. Steps are available in the article given above.
