Windows 7: Taskbar (using aero) went crazy!

Taskbar (using aero) went crazy!

Can somebody explain this for me? I seem to be unable to fix this issue.

Couple hours back my taskbar "lost" something and is now looking like the image on the left. On the right you can see how it should be.

This happened suddenly, and now it's happening after every reboot. Rebooted now about 10 times to test it. When logging to the Windows it stays normal anything from 2 to 10 minutes and then this happens.

I can still see items on taskbar, no problem. But it looks very ugly and confusing.

Help please!

Ouch,

Looks to me your internal graphics card is overheating in 2 to 10 minutes.

Better screw open the lappy and clean the fans.

Just for grins and giggles, have you performed a system restore to see if it helps??

I have an extra cooling pad and I clean my laptop bi-monthly. Besides, the only issue is with taskbar. Everything else, all Aero effects etc., showing fine.

Strange.

Not yet. Was thinking I wait first a little bit in case some of you gurus find me a fix. Restoring later today if nothing comes up.

Obviously not a driver, or hardware, but feels like a config problem. like an 'ini' file has a bad entry

Have you done any aero "forcing", or tweaking? Have you tried changing to a basic theme and then back? Maybe even try a safe boot then reboot

Ok, just that I had the same thing on my HTPC, only the taskbar, and saw my graphic temperatures were through the roof.

There was a big fluff of dust on the cooling body.

After cleaning it it went to normal temps again and taskbar was ok.

That's why my first hunch.

But Ken is probably right on this one.

By the way, the fluff was of cat origin.
