    Screen problems (IE 5.5.4134.0600)

    I had to ditch my C dirve and the shop put the O/S (95) on another drive, along with IE5.5 as above. All seems OK except that IE causes the CTX 1765Gme monitor to have never-before experienced problems with the image. I open IE windows, then, suddenly, the image becomes unstable. There are "smear" spots all over the window, especially when I move the trackball (Intellimouse) When I close IE, the smearing goes away. Any ideas? thanks! <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>

    I'd first try re-installing the video driver. Screen paint issues tend to manifest themselves in IE, but I believe that's due to it being rather intolerant of system problems.

    ...are you quite sure you're not attempting to drive your monitor at a refresh rate higher than it can handle?

    Re: Screen problems (IE 5.5.4134.0600)

    I have attempted to locate the refresh rate controls on this thing, but when I bring up the "diamond multimedia in-control toolbox" and/or the display properties on the desktop, or anywhere else for that matter, I do not see them. I can switch resolutions and color but can't locate the refresh rates. I'm almost tempted to ditch that, if I knew how to safely, and go to a simpler screen control. Thanks for the idea.

    Re: Screen problems (IE 5.5.4134.0600)

    Thanks. I have printed the article and will attempt to do what it asks. The repair shop placed IE on a system folder on my Desktop. Is that the proper place for it? I constantly have it close due to an MLANG invalid page fault when I start from there, but if I open Explorer and use a Favorites folder link, it works. Should I move or uninstall the Desktop location and re-install it in my Windows directory?
    Many thanks for the helpful comments. <img src=/S/salute.gif border=0 alt=salute width=15 height=20>

    Re: Screen problems (IE 5.5.4134.0600)

    I havd a Diamond Monster Fusion video card and use IE 5.5 SP 2 and have experienced problems with screen distortions. The Diamond driver aggressively overwrites comctl32.dll and you end up in "dll hell". Take a look at Microsoft KB article here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...b;EN-US;q219269' I found this fixed the problem; also I am using an external parallel zip drive that wasn't getting along with IE and there is documentation for that on Iomega's web site, should you have one of their drives.

    Hope this helps.
