Windows 7: Having issues with all web browsers. Window disappears to the right.

Having issues with all web browsers. Window disappears to the right.

It's exactly as the topic says. I use mostly Mozilla or Chrome, and with either I click it to start the browser, and the window disappears completely to the right of my screen. The only time I can see it is when it zooms to minimize, otherwise it is completely out of sight.

I have tried to uninstall/reinstall already, also I've restarted my computer. Nothing has worked thusfar. Any help you can offer will be much appreciated.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums, Miss Allura.

As the problem occurs with all browsers, you might want to check your screen resolution settings in your Control Panel. Chances are you've got the resolution set too high.

Thanks for the reply.

However, this isn't the solution. I should have already put that I had my daughter check that - at all resolutions the issue is the same.

You've very welcome.

In that case, the problem may be hardware-related i.e. your graphics card and/or drivers.

It'll be a great help if you can upload your system specifications so that we can help you further.

I have updated that part of my profile with everything that I knew as a fact. It's a bit confusing as my daughter is the computer person, not me.

I know this is a bit off subject, but how do you get 5GB Ram?

Interestingly enough, I was unable to find an HD4200 graphics driver off of the amd website

The OP may have 2 sticks of 2gb and 2 sticks of 512mb.

Ah, true. Hadn't thought of that as most computers today come in 1-4GB per stick. This also leads me to believe that the computer is older as I mentioned I couldn't find a graphics driver for her. But then when did this problem start, and would the causes be known?

This is her daughter - I haven't looked at her specs - but will do when I come home tomorrow. However, the computer isn't old. It was bought late spring this year.

Also, you wouldn't find it on AMD website, I don't think. Wasn't ATI removed from AMD?

I know this offers little to the actual solution to the problem, but which retailer did you get it from, if you don't mind my asking?
And has the computer always been doing this?
