Nerds, I need computer help
Hey guys, we're having a hiccup of sorts with our desktop. It never goes into screensaver or standby mode after sitting idle. There's something running in the background that is keeping it from doing so, however, we haven't been able to find what it is. This has been going on for the last several weeks and can't figure what's been installed to make it wig out.
Also, during game play, there is sporadic kick off back to the desktop and there is a very fast flash of a window, both on the desktop and the task bar. The game is just minimized to the task bar and we just click on it to get back to the game.
We've also been able to catch this mysterious popup flash on the task bar when the computer is sitting idle. But it flashes so fast we cannot read it.
Here's the comp specs:
Intel 875PBZ motherboard w/3.2Ghz processor
4 512 Mb Kingston RAM
NVidia 6600GT video card
Audigy 2ZS Platium soundcard
Here's what we've done to trouble shoot:
Run Spybot and Adaware, that came out clean
Run Norton Antivirus, clean
Checked all running processes and none were cause
Checked stanby and screensaver setting, all were enabled
Anyway, we're at a loss for what this is, any ideas?
