I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop P105-S6187 Windows Vista Home Premium.
My brother has the exact same one, and when he goes to log into any site using a password, He gets this 1/4 inch strip ( red, blinking) around the outside edge of the screen.
Now, Here is the story.... While His ex wife and her TEEN age kids were living with him, They had some program put on the Laptop, and his home computer, that records every keystroke. (Trying to monitor the kids.) Well things got bad and She and the kids have moved back east.
He had caught her snooping through emails, bank accounts.... Well you get the idea.
I have looked every where I can think of to figure out what might be causing this flashing red ring, to no success. I have never noticed it happening on my Lap top.
He is afraid that Someone??? Has gotten into his computer and is monitoring his stuff.
Could this be some kind of system warning?
Warning not to use his passwords? :huh:
Any help would be appreciated.
