Windows 7: Magnifier

16 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7

Help me please someone out there

I have a vision problem. Before I had a laptop with XP and I used a Microsoft Intellipoint Laptop Laser Wireless Mouse 6000. NAGIC - I could work and lead a normal computer life.

I have had to buy a mew ;aptop which, of course, comes with Windows 7. DISASTER for people with sight problem. First tried to install the Intellipoint - lots of incompatibility messages - nought a newer version of the mouse - downloaded all the siftware to ugrade as was told on the site - no chance - will not work

So am now trying to use the Magnifier. HOPELESS. Works fine for half a minute or so, then starts flickering and superimposing other windows on top of the one I am viewing - if I have no other window open it will flicker and show parts of the desktop underneath this window I have open now while I type this. It varies from the mildly irritating to completely unusable

I have tried all sorts of screen and display settings and verything I can think of but no good. If I open the little Magnifier window and hover over it, this settles it down again for a few moments but not for long

Has anyone any ideas? I want my computer life back and to work again

Finally to enroll pn this forum I had to fill in one of those forms where part of the process is entering some hieroglyphics that appear on the form that you then have to type into a box. It took me 6 goes to get it right - PEOPLE WITH BAD ESYSIGHT CANNOT READ THOSE WEIRD WORDS!!!

Win7 x64

Firstly, SevenForums rocks, I can find 99% of solutions to problems, so thank you everyone involved users and site owners.

MAGNIFY SCREEN FLICKER has fracked me off since AERO was released.
The issue is Aero, you can get around it and still get to use most of AERO's features, but you need to disable one 'TRANSPARENT GLASS' feature (seen in the attached file)


MS this is not a fix, but how we deal with your bad programming skills team.
AERO & MAGNIFY are your products, no excuses fix it.

Magnifier does not respond
Though magnifier.exe has disappeared from Accessories, I do know how to find it. However, it does not work as it should; it stalls everything until I stop it in Task Manager, which clearly states magnifier is "not responding." How can I get it fixed?
