Help required

This happened yesterday
1--- the screensaver didn't work
2---When I right clicked on the monitor screen nothing happened
3---When I clicked on the start button the banner came up but would not go away

Every thing else seemed ok
this morning when I switched on the comp all was back to normal
I have recently installed MS defender, could this be the problem or have I got a dodgy graphic card?

Any advice would be gratefully received.

Hi tes, a more descriptive title to your threads would probably bring a better response from members. "Help required" gives no indication of your problems.

Don't blame the video section as such.....yet!
Very ccasionally I have weird happenings where (to my mind) something has loaded in the wrong order or glitched and missed the opportunity to load or shut down at all.

Like blind faith, or a dose of salts, the ritual of a reboot or a visit to Task Manager will generally get things going again leaving me with a working system once again.

I emphasise this is very rare and quite unpredictable.
All is still normal with yours today?

Thanks for your advise but I'm afraid I just couldn't think of any thing to descibe the problem

"Screensaver won`t work" would have done. The main reason for more explicit titles is so that they can be searched for more easily using the search box at top of page. Regards, Meshuga.

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files
Type

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
