Windows 7: An item from a mouse click remains on screen

13 Jan 2012   #1

An item from a mouse click remains on screen

A menu item from a context menu frequently remains displayed after a mouse click. For instance I have a display
that has the word 'Delete' on it. This display is on top of anything I type or try to read. That is why I had to put a carriage return after display above as I was unable to move anything so that the I could see what I was doing. The only way I have found to get rids of it is to reboot. Doesn't matter what program I am in. It happens when I click on a context menu item.
Any ideas?

Have you tried to refresh the screen? F5. Why it is doing though is another matter.

F5 did not work. Refresh either.

Make sure your video card is cool, and dust free.

Just looked at your MB and saw that you have an NVIDIA GeForce 7050PV chipset. check drivers to be sure you have the latest and greatest.

Put the entire pc on a notebook via an image. Three days now and it hasn't happened yet. Fingers crossed.
