Hi everyone,

I have a problem on my computer running Windows Vista Ultimate. Whenever I open the Safely Remove Devices dialog, the screen flickers every 3-5 seconds (it goes black for a while, then the screen comes back up with the mouse centered). Upon closing the dialog box, everything seems to return to normal.

I have updated all drivers, but the problem still persists. I would appreciate any help on this matter. Thanks!

Hello,


Try restarting your computer, then remove the USB when Windows shuts down. This should fix the problem!

Thanks for the reply.

Actually, this problem has been going on for quite a while now (more than half a year maybe?). A lot of shutdowns/restarts have taken place since. In addition, this problem happens with ALL usb devices that require safe removing, and not any one/type in particular.
