    Unresponsive Part on Desktop


    hey,

    i am posting about a problem i have been having for quite some time, with windows 10 as well as 7. Its rather hard to explain, which could be the reason i came up empty on searching for it, so i'll start with an image:

    Unresponsive Part on Desktop [​IMG]


    Sometimes, after closing a full screen application, windows ignores part of one of my screens. the window in that image is maximized. i could put it in windowed mode and drag it over this "dead" part without a problem. however i cannot drag icons there or select this space by leftclick-dragging. i can even see the mouse cursor.

    on rebooting, the black part is gone. this becomes rather tiresome though, and i'd like to find out why this keeps happening.

    so far i've tried:
    - changing desktop resolution
    - unplugging screen
    - reorder screens in windows
    - restarting desktop window manager
    - starting and closing fullscreen applications

    if anybody has any suggestions, i'd appreciate it

    :)

    Please provide more information so that the cause of your problem may be diagnosed.



    Please restart your computer and allow 20 minutes for the system to run before uploading information required to help me investigate your problem. When examining Event Viewer log files many, not all, problems show in the period immediately after
    the computer has been booted.



    Please provide a copy of your System Information file. To access your System Information file select the keyboard shortcut
    Win+R, type msinfo32
    and click OK . Place the cursor on
    System Summary. Select File, Export and give the file a name noting where it is located. Click Save.
    Do not place the cursor within the body of the report before exporting the file.
    The system creates a new System Information file each time system information is accessed. You need to allow a minute or two
    for the file to be fully populated before exporting a copy. Please upload the file to your OneDrive, share with everyone and post a link here. If the report is in a language other than English, please state the language.



    Please upload to your OneDrive and share with everyone a copy of your
    System log file from your Event Viewer and post a link here. Please remove any earlier copies of the logs from your OneDrive.



    To access the System log select the keyboard shortcut Win+R, type
    eventvwr.msc and press the ENTER key. From the list in the left side of the window select Windows Logs and System. Place the cursor on System, select Action from the Menu and
    Save All Events as (the default evtx file type) and give the file a name. Do
    not provide filtered files. Do not place the cursor in the list of reports before selecting Action from the menu. Do
    not clear logs whilst you have a continuing problem.

  3. Desktop Unresponsive

    Hello,

    My computer is relatively new, only about 2 - 3 months old, yet I am experiencing lots of trouble. After closing the lid of the computer after finishing my work, it was all fine until I opened it again. It took forever to boot up to the login screen, and
    when it did, did not allow me to enter my password. It wouldn't let me click on the on screen power button or ease of access button. After restarting a couple of times, however, it did allow me to enter my password and after alot of waiting I made it to the
    desktop. This is where is got annoying. Firstly, all that appeared was the windows icon and search icon on the taskbar, and the notification icon and time across the other side. After a few more restarts it showed the desktop shortcuts, folders and recycle
    bin etc. yet everything was unresponsive. I could not click on anything, all I could do was move the cursor.

    Can someone please help, this is beginning to be very frustrating.

    Thanks in advance,

    Lachie
