Sooo off I went into the BIOS while on hold to disable these options. I then booted into Windows, let it install the latest video drivers
from MS Update, and I then rebooted and tried to reproduce the problem with Aero enabled... and guess what??? I could not reproduce it anymore! I have the laptop back in the hands of the user now and so far for the past hour or so it has not happened again. Sooo for those of you who have this problem disable your hardware virtualization bios options to make the issue go away. I had already upgraded from A01 to A17 bios a few days ago as well but that didn't help, so it's not something that was fixed by a newer bios.
When the tech returned from having me on hold he canceled the motherboard replacement and so far so good, no issues once the virtualization options were turned off... yay!
Sorry to jump into this thread... i was facing similar probs since long and i used to log out and log in to set right the distortion (refresh didnt help)
can you explain on where you got the option to disable virtualization ?
my hardware spec :
T 500 Laptop, Core 2 Duo P8400 2.26 Ghz processor, GB DDR3 ram, Intel Series 4 Chipset. Display Resolution : 1280 x 800
I am running Windows 7 Professional 64 bits SP 1. Just for info, i do not have any such problems on the other 2 OS i am using... i even uninstalled the display driver
and rebooted so that windows searches for new driver and installs.. still same LINK to Screenshot
I would really like to get over this problem...
