Windows 7: Monitor Image Flickers, Shakes, and Jumps at Some MS Sites

Monitor Image Flickers, Shakes, and Jumps at Some MS Sites

When I visit some MS sites, my desktop monitor image shakes, flickers, jumps, etc. It does it only on the MS sites, especially Windows Sky Drive. Dell Inspiron All in One, 2320, Win 7 Home Premium, 64 bit, 23 inch Dell LCD monitor, 1920 X 1080 resolution (recommended), refresh rate 60Hz (none other offered). I have a Dell 1720 laptop, Win 7, 32 bit, 17 inch monitor, and the monitor image is stable at all MS sites, including Windows Sky Drive. Does anyone else have this problem, or does anyone have an opinion about this behavior? Since my laptop is stable at the sites, it obviously is not a site problem. UPDATE: Just so other users will know, I now have Firefox 27.0.1 and IE 11. The shaking, flickering, and jumping has returned on all MS sites while using Firefox, but is still stable with IE 11. If anyone has solved this problem, I'd like to know, although I assume the only cure will have to come from Mozilla.

Hi bobhist,

Welcome to Seven forums.

Please let us know if you have checked it in a different browser as well on the system. If it was working earlier you could perform a system restore:

System Restore

If this doesn't work then kindly check the system under safe mode with networking and let us know the results of the same:

Safe Mode

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

SandeepP, Thank you for the reply and advice. I should have mentioned that I was using Firefox v. 25.0.1, but earlier versions were giving the same instability for MS sites. When using IE 9, the MS sites, and all others, were stable, so it definitely was a problem in Firefox. As of this morning I received an update for Firefox (v. 26), which was labeled as an improvement for security and stability. With Firefox v. 26, all of the MS sites are now stable, so whatever the problem in earlier versions of Firefox the current version 26 has cured it. Again, I thank you for your help. Bob Stevens
