I have Windows xp with a dell latitude e5400 ... I already tried to reinstalled windows , updated all drivers . What is happening is that the top row of the screen in any screen flashes about a 1/8th inch bar every 3 seconds over the tastbar , even on startup and safe mode.

hi, its something that runs at startup. press Ctrl+Alt+Del. start a task manager. click on the applictions tab. there should be something there which is called "hidden form". end that task
your computer should be fine.
p.s it will run every startup. press start. run>type msconfig>select the startup tab and untick hidden form. if it is not there, you must repeat the first step every time you log on to your compuer.
p.p.s. the amount of pixels will increase gradually if its not treated properly

I'm having the exact same issue on my ASUS X83. It started like either yesterday or the day before. All I did was update the driver for my NVIDIA 9300m GS card. I'm running Vista SP1 but I have not yet tried a reinstall or recovery as yet. Need to back up my data first. I did a system restore and the
I disabled my video card and the strip of pixels were still flashing at the bottom. I took numerous screen shots but the strip or blinking pixels never shows up in the picture.
This flashing 3 second copied top of the screen row of pixels that's about a 1/6th of the Taskbar on the bottom of the screen is also slightly transparent.

Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo P6300 (2.0GHz)
Vista Home Premium SP1 x64
Norton 2008 Internet Security

I really wonder what the heck it is and why it suddenly appeared. Did you call Dell?
