when I scroll with either the wheel or the scroll bar in IE 8, the monitor goes blank. It's not just IE that goes white or blank - the entire monitor goes blank and then goes back on. it goes off for a literal one second or so then returns. It does not do this in Google Chrome or any other program. I have searched and didn't find and answer. Have any of you seen this and know the solution? Thanks for any help.
I have the same problem right now. It has happened before after an update and it is happening again today. I will assume that there was another F**-up on updates. windows 7 Pro, IE 8.0.7600.16385.
Turn off smooth scrolling in IE * Internet options | Advanced | smooth scrolling -> unchecked. It fixed the problem in my browser.
