Redimensioning windows situation


Recommended Posts

I don't know why this happens, but when my pc isn't restarted for a long time, when I use hibernate, the redimensioning and moving windows, it happens something strange, as if it were a preview.

The window doesn't actually changes until I drop the mouse button.

Here's some screenshot.



Can anyone tell me why does this happen, I kinda like this way.

I recalled seeing this somewhere and finally found it:

For this right click on ” Computer” and select “Properties” from the right click menu.

  • Click on ” Advanced System Settings ” from the left pane to open up the ” System Properties ” window.
  • Select the “Advanced” tab from it. Then Under ” Performance ” click ” Settings “.
  • Untick the checkbox for "Show window contents while dragging".
  • Click Ok, then OK again on the Advanced System Settings window.

Should do the trick!

Now, that's IS a bit of a mystery. My first notion would be to check to see if part of your registry is getting hacked off by bad blocks on the hard drive, and if it were on my bench I'd check that for good measure. Maybe put the system in hibernation after you put a check in the box and see if it's still there after you wake the system up.

Download Speedfan here: http://www.almico.com/speedfan445.exe , set a System Restore point and install it. After the install, run it and take a look at the SMART tab. You'll have to use the dropdown menu to pick the drive to check (usually HD0 ). Pop a screenshot in to your reply. Can't hurt to get familiar with this function of speedfan in any case. To download it, you'll have to click on the bit that says "The latest version is "Speedfan x.xx"

Tell me more about the system. Dell, Lenovo, HP, etc. Processor, RAM, add-in video card?

Thanks -

Sounds like you're clear on that count!

Next up, run Checkdisk:

Click Start (or hit the Windows key on your keyboard) and open "Computer" to see a list of your drives.

Right-click on C: and select Properties.

Click on the Tools tab.

Under Error-checking click the Check Now... button.

Mark the box next to Automatically fix file system errors.

Click on the Start button.

When the message box pops up, click the Schedule disk check button and restart your computer.

Once your computer restarts it will check the drive, don't press any keys so that it is allowed to do so.

Checkdisk will finish up and your computer will boot in to Windows.

When the system starts back up after the checkdisk, go back in to the screen where you found "Show window contents while dragging".

There will be some presets:

Adjust for best appearance

Adjust for best performance


Choose one of them, OK it, then close down everything and restart the system. After the system restarts, go back in and put the settings back to how you prefer them, OK it and restart again. Check to see if the setting in question survives hibernation this time.
