    Display crumbles in Excel ’97

    Locked

    by oscar.packeer ·

    When using MS Excel ’97 the screen (display) seems to crumble & get distorted. The whole display will eventually be illegible & the only way out is to re-boot. Any reason why this happens?? & what is the fix??

      Hi I am not sure but this sounds like the product of a Virus.

      Let me know how you get on.

      Best Regards

      Does F5 help at all? How about opening another app, full screen, to force the screen to redraw? If the new window looks OK, how does Excel look when you close the new window? If you just quit Excel, does the problem go away? Can you duplicate this problem with ANY other program? If the ONLY way to clear up the problem is to reboot, I would look at the operating system. What version of Windows are you using? Older versions of Win95 had a memory handling problem, and didn’t release memory properly. I’ve seen a similar problem to yours with Excel 2000. Replacing the video card fixed it for awhile, but the issue returned. Bottom line: we could use more info.

        I checked everything according to your suggestions – however no resolution??
        I have today downloaded & installed the latest driver for the video card, let’s see if this fixes the problem??
