Q: Taskbar flickerd This thread is locked from future replies


I've been finding that the taskbar flickers to black, like the images disappear.  It happens to the time, buttons, start menu windows icon, etc.  It flickers back and forth and eventually stops.  I'm thinking it's a driver problem?  There seems to be no pattern as to what's causing it.  Here's my hardware info:

Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family (Microsoft Corporation - Prerelease WDDM 1.1)

Any help would be appreciated.

There is indeed a harmony to the universe.



Hello, Matt

Thank you for using the Answers Forum and for helping test Windows 7!

Are you using the Aero theme?

To test, try changing your theme to “Windows 7 Basic”. Right click a blank area of your desktop and choose Personalize then locate and select the Windows 7 Basic theme.

If you are already using that, try the Windows Classic theme.

Let us know the results.

If you can't fix it with duct tape, you haven't used enough.
