I have a Sony Vaio, VGN-CS320J, laptop with Vista installed.
The computer runs fine BUT, the lower half of the taskbar has a pink and green , horizonal, active bar ontop of it. That makes it hard to read whats on the taskbar.
Whats strange is that the pinkish/greenish bar is active. It blinks pinkish for a second and a half, then greenish for a second and a half, then it stops. Then it does it over and over again and doesn't stop the whole time the laptops on.
Sounds wierd, I know.
Anyone have any idea what this horizonal bar is ?

Does this problem happens at Safe Mode?

When your problem happens could you press Print Screen Button and paste it on Paint / Word and see on that Screen Shot does you could see your problem on the picture? If you could see it than you need to update your Display Adapter Driver. If you couldn't see it that means your LCD have some problem.

Yep, it is on in SafeMode also. I tried to update the driver but the computer said that I already had the best driver for it.
No matter what I do, even when I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it, the pink , blinky bar sits ontop of the taskbar. It covers the whole bottom half of the taskbar. I couldn't get anything to print.
The cursor even goes under the pinkish bar.

Have you try to take a Screen Shot and see it with Imaging Software or Word? Just to make sure does it Software or Hardware failure.

Please take a Screen Shot and see does you could see your problem or not. If you could see it on Screen Shot picture please attach it on your next post so we could recognized your problem.

Sorry, I got rid of the laptop and am taking the money to build me a very nice desktop. Thank you for helping me on this strange problem !
