    Hi. :)

    New guy here with a question. And this is so weird, I've never seen anything like it.

    Just got an Acer Aspire one. Worked great for a day or so, then suddently the screen started flashing when certain programs were maximized. The blue windows system bar turned pink and quickly flashed back again (3-6 / sec), it looked like when you got a bent pin on an old CRT monitor. Full color inversion

    But the really weird thing... The flashing is program dependent! If you minimize firefox or EI, the flashing disappears. If you press start, the flashing dissappears. When you click in ff or ei's window, it returns. The only two programs where this flashing occurs is IE and firefox. Not in word, acroreader or windows explorer.

    Like... wth?? Have you heard about anything like this?
