    Hi guys....

    I'm not 100% sure how to explain it, but i think it's a simple problem, only i don't know how to fix it....

    Whenever i right-click on a movie file to delete/rename it, my monitor refreshes the screen (goes black then back to normal again) and it happens on every movie file i do it to, and i don't reckon it's good for the monitor doing that all the time...I don't even know why it started doing it, perhaps some new drivers turned something on.

    Can anyone tell me how to stop it.... I'm running a Geforce 6200 TD128, 'cause maybe it's something to do with Nvidia's Driver settings, which i looked at and can't find the problem myself....

    Any help is much appreciated Thanks.

    Right off the top of my head I would have to say it is your video drivers

    right click on your desktop where there is not an icon
    select properties
    then click settings
    what is your resollution set at ?
    was it 16 bit or 32 bit ?→ no , set it to 32 bit
    you may also want to go to click on system in control panel, then hardware, then device manager
    look for your video card ( display adapter)
    there should not be a red " x" or " ! " next to it
    click the plus sign next to display adapter
    write down the model just incase
    HIGHLIGHT and click uninstall
    go up to the top of the list
    make sure your pc name is highlighted
    click on ACTION in the task bar
    select rescan for changes

    try a movie
    did this work
    yes→ your done
    you may need to download drivers from
    either the manufacture of your pc, if OEM like Gateway, Dell , HP ...etc
    or the manufacturer of the vid card
