This is the best way i can explain my problem... (might be long, please bare with me i'm desperate)
When i open several internet explorer windows... and maybe a different application/program or two, (doesn't matter what's open)- when i attempt to switch from page to page/page to application, or whatever.... the application or page i attempt to switch to is "unclickable".. it won't let me..
as in let's say i'm viewing this page right now in guru 3d... then i click on let's say "microsoft word" at the bottom of my screen.. it just simply won't let me switch to that program.. i have to fool around with the current screen i'm on (like scroll up and down...click everywhere anonymously) before it will let me click another application.. and sometimes it won't let me click the other page/application at all and i have to resort to "alt+tabbing" to get to another application
another example- i'll open a video from a webpage.. and i can watch the video as it opens in windows media player.. but i can't click "play pause stop" or nothing.. it just won't let me click nothing, until i keep "alt+tabbing" back and forth or click around.. THEN it will let me.
this doesn't happen every single time.. but more like 1 out of 5 times i switch from application.. which is driving me nuts
I POST THIS IN THE HARDWARE FORUM BECAUSE.....
i just reformatted.. (literally like 3 min ago) i'm clean, all i installed was the motherboard programs that are neccessary and the latest forceware drivers and it's STILL giving me this problem.........
is this a hardware problem?? if so what part?? almost every part in my computer is about 6 months old (from newegg).. and i only had this problem for about 2 weeks....
the only part of my hardware that seems a little messed up maybe the chipset(?) fan- (the small little fan in the middle of the mobo and under the video card) half the time, the fan is spinning messed up (spins then stops, spins than stops) and i have to keep messing with the fan for it to spin properly.. is this my problem??
if anyone knows any idea of what's going on.. please help me out thx
oh and just incase my specs are
ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe
AMD Athlon 64 3500+
1 gig Corsair pc2700 ram
evga 6800GT vid card
western digital 100 gig HD
maybe i shouldn't use rubber bands to tie all my cords? or the twisters you get at the market? i seriously have no clue right now..
PS: but on the serious note, reinstall windows and DO NOT put any "nessessary" mother/father board drivers unless it is not working AT ALL (meaning: does not boot) and see if it is working, if it does, then you have SOFTWARE problem not the hardware (meaning: which it is)
..this is very useful and helpful place for information...
