Hello, i have a problem where there is a display settings pops up when using the computer. also a small lock picture in the middle of the screen pops up as well. when i turn off the pc, a screen meassge pops up saying "in power safe mode press any key on keyboard or move mouse"... Now i have cleaned my pc to malware free. and still these pop ups remain. we now starting to believe this is a hardware or software issue. :)




[01:27] <~sari> so they'll be able to tell if it's hardware or XP related
[01:27] <~sari> tell them that you've been through the malware forum and you're now clean
[01:27] <+vclass> ok

Make and model of the computer please? On-board graphics? Have you looked at the display drivers program to see the settings there? It may be you have the screen settings too high for the graphics card. Have you tried updating the graphics drivers? There also may be a setting in the BIOS on the graphics that is causing the problem.
