Lag & multicolored lines -

Post by toomanyquestions » Wed Mar 17, 2010 12:43 pm

I have a two hd dual boot system (512). I recently re-loaded Mint (there was a Windows problem :( ).

Since then, as I open the mint menu (sub menus, the firefox, open office etc. ), there's often an ever-so-slight lag, accompanied by a flash of multi-colored lines. What could be the problem? Was my reload compromised / not clean?

Oh, a secondary question - Mousepad is automatically opened (& minimized!) when I start each can I stop that from happening?

*Problem solved: A fresh install fixed the problem...

[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
