It could be a sign that the monitor is on its way out. What kind of monitor is it? LCD or CRT?   :bubbles:

It's done.  Time to buy a new one.

It's a Dell E193FP LCD monitor.  I don't know how old it is.

 

I didn't know if the problem was due to malware or a bad driver or what.

The "what" might be the monitor itself.  Maybe you could borrow one from another computer & see what behavior have w/ it.

If you are not sure about your monitor, get a monitor from your friend or anyone and see if the problem persist or not. I am sure your monitor is done and dusted.

Nat,

The person, already, did that @ my suggestion & reported the results.

Oh sorry, I neglected to say, didn't I, ooops.  I was right, was the monitor itself.  When she tried a different monitor, that one worked just fine.

I've, always, found it neat that we can fix things for people whilst not hands-on or even remotely nor eyes-on and (meant in the nicest way, actually makes it fun) some interesting, challenging descriptions & queries, sometimes.

 

But, when it's rewarding, AAAhhhhhh... it's worth every moment put into it.

 

Cheers,
Drew
