Windows 7: Flickering display in Word 2002

Flickering display in Word 2002

I recently developed a major annoyance in Word 2002 in Windows 7 64 bit on a laptop with Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family display.

The following doc http://www.orthohelp.com/Problem doc.doc demonstrates the problem.

When I open it in Word 2002 it flickers and locks up Word 2002. The same doc does not flicker in Word 2007. How do I get rid of the flickering and locking? Thanks.

I know. I hate those teasers where it's solved without a posted resolution.

It's not so much that I really want to know, its that I actually use the search function to look for solved threads where the OP had a similar problem. Almost every problem that occurs has happened to someone else.

I did not post the solution because it was too complicated to explain. In essence the document was created by copy/pastes. The problem was that some of the data overlapped the right margins of the table/document and Word did not know how to format it and became locked. I solved it by copy pasting a bit of the text at the time to ensure it fit within the prescribed table cells.

Doesn't seem that complicated to me. And kudos on fixing it.
