Windows 7: Icons and Other graphics Streaking after resuming from Standby

Icons and Other graphics Streaking after resuming from Standby

I have a Dell Studio 1537 computer that came with Vista.
After I upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate, I noticed that whenever the system resumes from standby, all the graphics have streaking over them. Any ideas what is happening here and how I can resolve it?

Hi chikoo, welcome to 7F

Here is a thread eerily similar to yours: http://www.sevenforums.com/graphic-cards/25335-distorted-display.html

You can try shutting down the Aero, but I think your better bet would be to upgrade the video drivers.

Holy shiznit
The system spec in that thread is the same as mine...

I have upgraded my video last week directly from the Intel website, but still no help.

I have to ask....Are you sure it is the latest driver?
And what are your System Specs?
Specifically how much Ram?
Is it 3Gb like the other thread?
It may help to bump it up to 4.

I found this on the Intel site: Graphic artifacts w/ Intel G45 Chipset...

The second post down by lukasg translates to:
Quote:
This is a problem, they have laptops with 3 GB ram and turned on the CPU virtualization ... It is the fault of the manufacturer, it will help either very old driver, or the removal of 1 GB of RAM, or only pair ram modules. 1 x 1 GB or 2x2 GB. Sry for English - Google Translate.
So to follow his advice you would have to enter your BIOS and turn off the virtualization, then again it may be software based, this explains it better: Intel Virtualization Technology (VT) Explained | Hardware Secrets

Or you have to drop to 1GB of ram which does 7 no good or go up to 4GB.
