View Full Version : Start button

31-03-2002, 10:03 PM
I have a very new (and very good) computer running win me.
I have often a visually corrupt start button and also corrupt popup (from start)
I cannot relate it to any one programme that I run. it seems random?
Can anyone suggest where to look?
Cheers and REALLY looking for help

I have the same thing. Often the start button is all streaky lines or black, and the side panel that says 'Windows 98' that runs up the left of the start menu is often a patchwork of colour.

Nothing seems to trigger it, and no fault found in the graphics using SiSoft Sandra to test the system.

This question was also asked a while back with no response. Any ideas anyone?

I get a black start button after playing a game where the game takes over the video settings then when I quit the start button is black. Doesn't seem to effect the way the computer runs. DW

Thanks for your message.
Seems we'll both have to wait for a guru that knows the real answer. Interesting we have different o/s!!
