But then there is another problem, that of flickering tabs. The tab bar keeps flickering or disappears completely. This is really annoying when I use several tabs in Chrome. But it also seems to happen in other programs like Word (see picture below). The tabs such as ‘File’ and ‘Page Layout’ have a white font and almost seem to disappear.
Also, when I’m browsing often the window freezes, I can move the cursor but can't click on anything or move the page up or down. This lasts a few seconds at a time and then it will work again.
I have tried a system restore a few times, and the problem seems to disappear but always returns. So I think it might be a bug or virus that keeps being downloaded with programs I use or updates Windows does automatically. I only got the laptop a few months ago so it should be working perfectly.
I really have no idea how to solve the problem. I hope someone can help! Let me know if you need any more information to help!
My laptop is a Lenovo, Windows 7
