Hello, I have a strange problem and I'm out of ideas where to look or what to do. Not long ago I upgraded my moniter from a 15"Dell to a 19" Acer. At the time, I moved my computer to a lower shelf so it was easily accessible. Hooked everything back up and discovered at times things ( folders, closing, closing a window, links on a web page) do not respond. At first I was rebooting every time. That became a pain. Now, if I do Ctrl-Alt-Del and bring up task manager and just close it back up( X it out) then everything is ok, Things are clickable or will open then.

Specs: Win XP Pro SP3
2Ghz Ram
AMD Athlon 5000 Dual Core CPU
Nvidia Ge Force 6150Se nforce 430 video
Biostar motherboard

I've cleaned out the cache, upgraded the video to the nforce 430, and not coming up with any virus' I don't know where else to look. I primarily use Firefox and have ver 13.0.1. I didn't have this problem prior to upgrading the moniter. Does anyone have any ideas where else I might look?
Thanks

Also make sure that you didn't inadvertantly dislodge the video card from it's slot when you plugged in the new monitor and moved the system. Check other cables and components while you're in there.

Regards,

Thanks for the suggestions. I ran chkdsk and system file checker. It's still doing it every now and then.
I am using the onboard video, but thinking about upgrading.
