Windows 7: Strange window/icon behavior?

29 Oct 2009   #11

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Again, I should point out, this happens on both ATI and nVidia hardware alike.

Ok, update. Regarding the minimize/maximize issue. I know I wasn't the only guy crazy enough to notice this.

Again, on Vista, the animation is completely smooth. On Windows 7, there is DEFINITELY a small micro stutter. I was able to find a video via a thread on Microsoft's forums of other people complaining about this very issue.

Once you see the video in slo-mo, you'll see exactly what I'm talking about. So it ain't just me; there is surely a stutter/pause there.

Have a look see for yourself. Ignore the funny music.

Here's another video.

Basically, it looks like the window is "snapping". But snapping to what or for what, I don't know.

Now, about the jaggy icons, a Microsoft mod said that it's "by design".

Strange fan behavior
Hi! Why is the fan (only one fan in this crappy HP pavilion dv6835eo notebook) running at almost max rpm for at least five minutes during and after logon, but not otherwise? If i check the temps with HWMonitor 64 they are low, that is, under 40 degrees celcius so the fan should not be running as...
