    Programs flashing and behaving weird.


    Hello all, recently programs on my computer - both games and programs like the disc cleaner, flash weirdly and act strange. I really don't know how best to describe it but basically some parts of a programs window will flash, and the icon on my taskbar will disappear and then slide back into place as if the program were just opening. It does this very rapidly, and early when playing the Division beta my cursor would not lock to my screen when aiming and instead would go off onto my other monitor. I just did a re-install of windows ten using the option to save my personal files, but it's still doing it. Any ideas as to whats happening here?


    If my description is confusing (And I know it is) I can provide a link to a gif for an example, this is really annoying and in a lot of cases crashes my programs or renders them unusable.

    :)

  2. Problem: Nokia 820 (Windows 8.0) overheats, crashes, reboots automatically after power down

    Is it still behaving? I had a 920 at launch that was acting crazy until I reflashed it. Really weird, like it had a bad flash at the factory or something...

    That would be appreciated if you provide one *Smile

    So far I know shows Speccy only some S.M.A.R.T. attributes and temps, but that doesn't have to indicate a problem with the hard drive.
    I would suggest to try a few other tests instead, 1 of them shows the exact same results and more.

    Screen capture - cd0e808f6d09697a3ea45638fc251111 - Gyazo

    Here is a gif of the disk cleaner flickering as I'm using it, it was more difficult to record the taskbar since I can't do that with gyazo so I had to take a video. The video demonstrates what the icon on my taskbar is doing during this flickering - which I now know is the program not responding very rapidly over and over again, the gif I provided above was very tame, it's usually much much worse than that and will flicker rapidly in milliseconds at a time. WARNING: The video is really loud! I didnt realize at the time that my fan was on, and for some reason in this it sounds like an industrial snow blower so, yeah just mute the video. YouTube

    As for HD Tune's health thing, I couldnt figure out what to do with it so I just took a screenshot of the window :L Screenshot - f5f5d5c3b537b6f56262e6bd4eb3803f - Gyazo


    Everything seems to be okay with my HDD looking at these results but you probably know more than me, thanks for your help by the way

    That is unfortunate with the health, is Speccy showing something of the S.M.A.R.T. attributes?
