well, i could not do the repair install because it said "the version you are trying to install is ....blah blah" i dont remember. but basically it told me my current version of windows is more recent than the one i was trying to repair with and it wouldnt let me go further.

so i went ahead and re-installed windows anyways, a full, clean re-install.

the screen glitching is still happening. its driving me crazy!

Then it is a 'mechanical' problem possibly with the pad.

It's worth a try.

Re 'pad' - Sorry, I confused your post with another one where they had a laptop.
