Does anyone know how to fix it? My son was home for thanksgiving and he downloaded one of those stupid demo games and now my monitor blinks when I move my mouse. :cuss:

deleting that game would be the first step.

"Your mouse has moved. Windows must be restarted for the change to take effect. Reboot now?

[ OK ] [ Cancel ]"

The only thing I can think of is that the video game changed the refresh rate of your monitor.

It could have also installed a newer DirectX that your hardware has issues with.

It was just a bad Video card. I am glad I waited to find out what the problem was. I would have felt like a real jerk if I had jumped his ass about it.

Weird that a video card was being affected by a mouse click. Glad you figured it out, though. :thumb:

It may be that the card was going bad, and the new game expedited the problem, or the card wasn't fast enough to keep up with the game, and the game just fried it. I've heard of that happening when people tried to play a new high-end game on a system using an old, outmoded video card.

Is it too late to suggest getting a monitor to replace you moniotr?
