Default Weird thing on my laptop


Sometimes when I click one of those buttons, file>whatever, or edit>copy, it stays there until I close and open my laptop.

Its very difficult to describe what kind of buttons they are, so I got screenshot of it.

Please help,

Your help is greatly appreciated, thanks

Possibly the video card going out?

-Can you change the refresh rate / resolution of the screen to see if the issue stays on all resolutions.
-Update the drivers for the video card.
-Vista SME
