Screen scrolls uncontrollably

Acer / Aspire one
April 1, 2009 at 08:51:41
Specs: XP, 1G
I ran the recovery console on this computer last week because it would not boot (it would start, ask if you wanted to boot normally, safe mode, safe mode with networking, or last known good configuration but no matter which you chose it would then go to a blue screen which said it was doing a physical memory dump, and restart over and over and over).

Now everything appears to be fine except that when you put the mouse in certain places over an open window (it doesn't do it if you are on the desktop) the screen starts scrolling sideways (it wraps so the same things goes by over and over) super fast. If you move the mouse to the top (or bottom) of the screen it stops. Any ideas?

Physical memory dump often points to a bad or corrupted hardware driver. Could be that your video driver has gotten corrupted. You may have to download the latest version and replace it.

I would have thought the recovery console would reinstall that since it wipes everything else out - will try it though. Thanks!

Is the video card the one that came with the PC? I would think that reloading the OS would reinstall all the drivers, too, but if you added the card separately, that would not be the case. Double-check your screen settings, too. Also, make sure they are compatible with video card.

It is the card that came with the computer.

The recover console reloads the OS from a ghost drive... I just downloaded the video adapter from the website and updated it but its still doing the same thing :(

UPDATE - it does the same thing with an external mouse attached BUT it is perfectly fine if I start the computer in safe mode. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm How frustrating!
