    Annoying computer problems

    Nothing like the home computer to make otherwise intelligent people feel completely clueless! Recently, my laptop has developed a strange problem; Sometimes (but not always), when I play a video, it appears zoomed-in at least 10x size. This happens on embedded and non-embedded videos on different browsers and video softwares. I THINK it started after the previous windows update.

    So, I know it has to be a Windows issue, but why does it happen erratically? Or is it a hardware issue? GAAAHHHH!!!!

    Most often, I try to use a mouse instead of the laptop's touchpad.

    Sometimes, the pad seems overly sensitive, perhaps due to contamination (Church's chicken grease still on my fingers) or my "touch" being "off".


    On occasion, default settings for the web browser seem to change as I drag the cursor as if I captured a settings popup window for a fraction of a second and didn't even see it open.


    Course, the mouse (a mini wireless) lessens portability just a smidge.

    This has happened to me several times and I still can't figure out what I did wrong.

    Reads as if your drivers are not updated correctly. Here's what Microsoft says about it.
