On Windows 7, by pressing the eject button on the DVD player sometimes causes the monitors to twinkle

My PC works fine for just about everything, except when I need to pop in a CD or DVD. It seems random, but when I hit the eject button on the DVD player, my screens sometimes twinkle. It happens about once every 5 times as the button eject. I'm running a dual monitor, with a monitor on a DVI input and the other on a HDMI input. Both monitors sparkle.

The only things I can think of that can cause the problem are of my diet or my graphics card. My PC has never stopped on me during other operations, including executing some more processor intensive tasks. This seems to be a problem with my graphics card, but why my graphics card would randomly hitting the eject button?

Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (64-bit)
Intel Core i5-2400 s Sandy Bridge 2.5 GHz (3.3 GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 65W Quad - Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I52400S
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) 240 - Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) desktop memory model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
ASUS black drive Blu - ray SATA model BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS - OEM
ASUS P8H67-M PRO/CSM (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6 Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
XIGMATEK NRP - PC series ACXTNRP-PC402 400W ATX12V Ver.2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE certified Active PFC power supply

I found the solution to my problem of graphics. Wow, really?

So after the video driver updated, he set a maximum resolution on my HDMI output to 1600 x 900. That's if access you the resolution settings through the control panel > display > adjust resolution. Is not that how most people set the resolution?

The update of the driver has replaced the max resolution by default setting, but it can be given via Intel display control panel (no was not yet aware, I had such a control panel). This control panel option is available for the Intel graphics controller hardware. To set the resolution, right click on the desktop and select "graphics properties." Select 'Advanced Mode', and then configure the resolution 1920 x 1080. Once the parameter is committed through this control panel, the Windows 7 Control Panel settings to work as you would expect, and the monitor is the 1080 p display.

It is delayed. Pardon my French.

Well, at least now I'm back where I started, IE still has the problem with the eject button causing the dual display to flicker. It happened only twice since the update of the video driver, then perhaps that these events were flukes?

  • How to stop Windows of reconfiguration of the monitors of visualization?

    Hi all

    I'm working on a simulator product that requires a certain amount of output monitors representing screens of different aircraft in a simulation cockpit. We have the poster correctly configured so that each monitor displays the correct area to an "office" - i.e. so that each plane appears in the correct place.

    The problem is (and this is a very big problem) If a display disconnects for any reason, Windows thinks it knows best and RECONFIGURE the remaining poster. Unfortunately even reconnect the monitor (and even restarted) does not retrieve the configuration of the monitor a correct display.

    Is there anyway to prevent Windows to reconfigure the output displays when a monitor disconnects? In our case, the current behavior of Windows, try to be helpful is actually the worst thing he can do. We would much better for Windows to act as if the disconnected monitor was always there; This would avoid disruption to our screens configured carefully.

    There must be a setting somewhere that I'm missing to get this standard Windows behavior. Can someone help me please?

    Thank you


    P.s. I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum group - but I passed the age trying to find the most appropriate forum and this is the closest, I could find.

    Hi André,.

    Thanks for clarification on the issue. Much appreciated!

    Unfortunately, there is no other parameters that can stop this rendering problem. This behavior is by design. I thought of the setting to decreasing possibility to change the behavior, but nothing helps.

    However, the graphics card adapter plays an important role to restore the same settings when the screens are reconnected. You can try to update your video once card adapter and check if it helps.

    Hope this information is useful.

  • How change the default resolution for windows to use when the monitor is not connected

    Hi, how can I set the resolution by default that windows uses when the monitor is turned off or not connected at all? My problem is that normally I use 1920 x 1080, but when I put the pc to sleep or just turn monitor and leave it like that for a while with a few app maximized, when I get back and turn the monitor on the resolution is correct but the enlarged window is resized to 1024 x 786 resolution. I tried to change in the registry DefaultSettings.XResolution a DefaultSettings.YResolution in all instances and it worked fine for a long time. Then some update that happened and now it no longer works. I reinstalled the system, but it still does not. How can I force windows to use always the 1920 x 1080?

    It seems that TMM disabling did the trick. Maximized windows are not yet moved to the left edge of the screen, well, those who have been maximized is maximized correctly as they should. I had to disable TMM through registry as I had no MMR in Task Scheduler.

    If anoyone is interested I've followed the instructions described here:

  • DVD player always causes the reboot and hardware failure

    Whenever I double click on a specific title in a DVD the system restarts immediately. This happens with all stakeholders: Microsoft Media player, Roxio Cine player, easy DVD player. They all see the DVD and start it it fine, as will the titles on the DVD, but when I try to play one, the system restarts ALLWAYS IMMEDIATELY. I use Windows XP Professional SP3 with 1.5 GB of RAM. You will never have any problems reading or recording of the DVD data files.

    Is there some requirement of space on the hard drive to play a DVD? Which one and how much? (I have windows, software and cache HD on different logical drives.

    Make sure that your system is clean of any malware.

  • -DVD burn does not work in the DVD player sometimes

    I have a Mac Pro from the beginning of 2008, and it came with a DVD drive (OPTIARC DVD RW AD - 7170A).  I was able to burn DVDs with using toast in the past.

    But lately, the half of the DVD burn won't play in my DVD consumer player.  I get a "Disk error" message when I try to play them, and they do not load.  It's a strange problem, because some of them work and some do not.  I can't tell where the problem is.

    Is there a way to test the DVD player?  Should I just replace it?

    Many brands of blank DVDs gives very inconsistent results when burning. If you use a brand store or generic blanks, that may be the problem.

  • 2009 m: Windows 10 drivers for the monitor

    I want to know how long will be release HP compatible drivers for my 2009 m that will work in Windows 10? It's ridiculous!

    I tried to get the support of Windows and HP. Both provided the fix "try this" obvious I had already tried. Nothing has worked. I came to the conclusion that my video card is outdated. I have replaced this with a MSI R5450 \AMD Radeon graphics card video card, loaded the drivers and all is well. My computer is a custome built computer and videocard resident was an AMD processor. The computer is 4 years old since it was built, but apparently it's an eternity in the world of computing. In any case, everything is good now, two screens work as expected!

  • Press the link in relation to the open window


    I have a problem with opening a link with the link button in a report.

    (a) I have a javasrcipt procedure that opens a window popup (do_popup (url));
    (b) this script has been placed in the section body with onload = do_popup (& url);
    (c) I have report with some data (and more data in the pop up window)
    (d) by pressing the link button in the report, I will present the id of the column on the same page: P1_ID: #id #.
    (e) in the process "before the header" I set the url with p1_id <>condition variable 0

    So far my new popup window will open with the correct url given, right.

    But, when I close my window pop up, then this application will start again on the first page.

    Close the window pop up as follows:

    (a) process after the close_url variable set will submit any value instead of null
    (b) in the body section of the page, there is an onload javascript = do_close (& close_url)
    (c) a button at the bottom of the narrow called data will submit to the process after submit
    (d) the window will close, but the original page will demand again by pressing the link again in the report.

    Why the page submits work again?
    I have no idea of it.

    After you close the popup page it starts again the original page with the same rules.

    Maybe someone has an idea?

    Thank you


    Hi Frank,.

    Creating a function is fine--as long as the output is correct, that it does not matter too much how it is created! I tend to use the URL parameter or Expression HTML parameter for a column.

    doSubmit() will trigger normal Apex propose features. This should be just for the page that the button is on. In the past, I made examples of a popup page that has to force home page to submit because he is not otherwise! So, don't know exactly what could happen there.

  • Windows help keeps popping up when you press the happy.

    Hi, I am currently using an HP XT's spectrum that runs on Windows 8. Two days previously, when I press SHIFT C, the capital C is not at all.  Therefore, I press Caps Lock shift but this triggers a Windows Help is displayed.  This can be very irritating, especially when I'm typing a document. Anyone would be able to tell me how to activate the 'Shift C' keys, as well as to turn off the help pop-up windows when you press the CAPS LOCK key.?  Thank you very much for your help!

    Hello Lai,

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community Forum.

    If it works well before? If YES, you did important equipment or modifications to the software on the computer before this problem?

    The issue could rest with the material if it is a keyboard mapping problem. Then, I recommend you to connect an external keyboard with the ultrabook and check. If the external keyboard works fine, then you may need to contact the manufacturer of your system (hp) for the same problem.

    If you get the same problem with the external keyboard, the issue may rest with the keyboard or corrupt drivers.

    In this case, I suggest you to update the drivers for the chipset of your ultrabook. You can view the following link to do so:

    Spectrum of HP XT Pro Ultrabook

    Hope this information is useful. If the problem still persists, please post back for further assistance, we will be happy to help you.

  • U2715H - Windows automatically resized when the screen turns off then turn it back on

    • Windows 8.1 Pro
    • 1 single monitor connected to the PC
    • native resolution 2650 x 1440 at 60 Hz the value
    • through CDM of the monitor to the RFP the ti EVGA 750 SC (cable Dell)
    • all drivers updated on 28/12/15

    I just bought this monitor and I noticed this strange behavior. Whenever I have turn off the monitor (or it will turn off by itself), if I didn't have a maximized window, all windows (regardless of size) gets automatically resized to fit in the left upper quadrant when the screen turns back on again.  If I had something full screen, this behavior does not occur.

    I find this very annoying. This behavior happened with my previous monitor, which was only 1080 x 1200.

    I was unable to find any setting for the U2715H disable this "feature". This isn't because EasyArrange from Dell. I do not use this feature. And this always happens with Display Manager not installed.

    Is it just a 'feature' of Dell U2715H? Is responsible for Windows? Help, please.


    There was no pilot or changes to the hardware of my first post.  BTW, my monitor is a Rev A02.

    A few days after my previous message, another question emerged.  Monitor flash intermittently ON / OFF every few seconds.  I unplugged/replugged the cable CDM - DP and that seems to fix things... until the next day.  This time, I nothing could fix the random rotation power SWITCH of the monitor.  Desperate, I decided to plug an old HDMI cable, I had to hang out.  Flashing problem has been resolved.  Not only this, using HDMI solved my original problem of auto resizing windows.

    The solution to my original problem: use an HDMI cable.  I went to the Dell CDM - DP cable and the problem has been resolved; no more windows resize automatically when the monitor turns off in sleep/towers.  I always get the native resolution at 60 Hz and there is no noticeable disadvantages to the use of the HDMI versus DP interface.  I've been using the HDMI cable for about a week and there is no other issue.

    Just for additional verification, I bought an Accell UltraAV DP - DP 1.2 cable (B142C-007 b-2), one of the few officially approved by VESA (see link below).  Using this cable does NOT my automatic window resizing problem original.  I do not use it long enough to see if they would prevent the random flashing question.

    I still don't know the exact cause of my original question.  I guess it's a driver problem with DisplayPort standard.  But if you do not need DP 1.2 functionality, I suggest that you just use your GPU HDMI output (if she has a).
