I have this issue lately at work. It drives be nuts, and I finally stopped to ask this question.
It's quite often that an application I've been running just randomly fails to repaint itself for a while, usually in the editor screen. I most often see this occurring with Expression Web, Visual Studio 2008/2010 and SQL Server Management studio. These applications are what I work in the most, so I'm not surprised to mostly see it here. But I was curious if anyone else had a solution for this. I've tried:
- Reboots. The screen shot below is about 10 minutes after a reboot.
- New Video Drivers. This machine is running a Nvidia Quadro NVS 290 video card with the latest drivers.
- Closing other applications, this is the only thing running right now.
As far as hardware, this machine has Dual Quad-Core Xeon 2.83ghz Processors, with 10 gigs of memory, running Windows XP SP3 64bit.
Any help would be great.
Per comments from deleted (wrong) answer:
I'm running dual monitors.
Set it to single display, still occurred. Rebooted, and tried it again, and it still occurred. Switched it back to dual screen. My resolution is only 1400x900 on each.
