Yoga 2 Pro - Screen not sliding when switching desktops

Question: Yoga 2 Pro - Screen not sliding when switching desktops

I'm not sure if this is unqiue to Yoga 2 Pro or Microsoft 10 in general, but before when I wanted to switch between desktops using the windows key + ctrl + arrow key shortcut, the desktop on the screen would literally slide over. Now when I attempt to switch between desktops, that animation no longer happens--instead, the desktop's features just shift to those of the desktop I'm switching to. It can get confusing, because it's not as visually explicit when the desktop has been switched. Is this just a result of a Windows 10 update, or is this situation unique to my laptop? Thanks in advance!

Sometimes when I am playing back video via online streaming (Youtube, streaming, HBO on demand, Netflix), when I switch out of the normal laptop mode to the tent or stand mode or tablet mode, the video lags and i have to put it back to laptop mode so it will stop lagging. In addition, sometimes I notice in tablet mode, the computer/internet runes slower than in laptop mode. Anyone else see these issues?

Answer:Yoga 2 Pro - Switching Modes Causes Screen to slow down/Lag

Same here, if i'm watching something on youtube and decide to move things to tent or any other mode, runs slow, this includes netflix etc.... I have tried this in both browser and in the windows app versions on multiple occasions, and have the exact same issue, video slows to a crawl and moving thru sites is super slow. I really would like to use the laptop in all the different configurations but with these issues i'm stuck in laptop mode all the time. Is there some option i'm missing that fixes this? Also for some reason in firefox at defualt res font on sites are super small, you tube being the absolute worst. The video menu's are so tiny its downright impossible to click on the options. I tried all the troubleshooting I could find on the wed to fix it but nothing works. I had to switch fully over to chrome (which had no issues at all with scaling) but not a big fan of chrome.

I have been working on a friend's PC -- an hp pavilion (a527x) that's running WinXP-SP2. I just spent days cleaning all the spyware off of it, & finally got an OK from Chaslang that it was clean! However, I'm getting ready to return it, & now when I log off from one user & click on the 2nd user to change desktops, the monitor just goes black with a flashing cursor for a few seconds. Cannot get anything else to come up on the monitor then, & haven't had any trouble with the monitor or any other hardware up to this point. I turned off "hibernate", etc...in "Power Options" in the Control Panel. Any ideas here as to the cause? PC is running fine otherwise. Although can't seem to get MyWayWebSearch spyware off of it. Have tried all help in "Anti-Spyware" page. Anyone had this happen before to them or anyone know a possible cause & solution? Thanks bunches, in advance! Shannon

Hi,

I have the following problem: switching virtual desktops to the right (CTRL+WIN+Right Arrow) doesn't work. On the other hand, when I go to e.g. desktop number 3 (using WIN+TAB and mouse) I can switch to the left using CTRL+WIN+Left Arrow without any difficulties...

I installed Windows Hotke Explorer to check, if CTRL+WIN+RIGHT has been taken, but it just stands "System (Move window)" in both cases.

Does anyone know, what could be the reason?

my screen keep sliding to the side (i like a big font) and if I hit the ? key or shift keys it goes back a page. Also if I hover over lists it automatically scrolls down and its hard to scroll back up because it'll just go back down. I don't have a special hi tech mouse.

Also my computer screen won't go to sleep. I tried the pwer -request thing in cmd propt but nothing was keeping it up. also ctrl v shrinks the font size

This morning i turned on my U920T-10J but the screen stayed black.

At first I thought the screen was broken but in "tablet mode" the screen went on. Now when i want to slide out the keyboard the screen goes black again.

How can this problem be solved?

Answer:Satellite U920T - screen turns black when sliding out the keyboard

Hi

For me it looks like a loose connection somewhere between the display and the motherboard.
This might be possible reason for display blackouts while sliding in and out.

I guess this cannot be solved easily and I think this is a job for an technician (authorized service provider). I recommend you to contact the service technician in your country to get the notebook fixed. Hopefully the warranty is still valid in order to fix it free of charge.

I hope this can be fixed?. I keep finger crossed.

My screen seems to be displaying dull images.
I'm kinda concerened, because it's an LCD screen, and its not displaying like my desktops LCD screen.

I put the brightness up, and that helped to see the images better, but they still are not of the quality they should be.

Is there a way to fix this? Or is that just how it is?

Answer:Qosmio X305 screen not displaying like my desktops LCD screen

Many Desktop LCD Monitors can get very bright, much brighter than most notebooks. So it may just be how it is. Perhaps you could go to the shops and compare it to other X300's on display.

Try resetting or modifying the Contrast/Colour/Brightness settings in the nVidia control panel.

Hello, I've had my Yoga 3 Pro for about 3 days now. It worked earlier, but now it wont switch into any other mode than laptop. Rotating the display leaves the keyboard and touchpad enabled, and harmony still thinks I'm in laptop mode. Any idea as to what could have caused this, and how to fix it? The only thing I've uninstalled that came with the computer is Pokki. Thanks for your help.  EDIT: So I did a full system recovery, back to factory, and the problem is still there. There is no setting in BIOS and I'm getting worried it might be hardware related.

Hi, I have a problem with W10 virtual desktops.

I'll explain it step by step :

Go to virtual desktop 1
Open full windowed Chrome
Go to virtual desktop 2
Open two different full windowed excels
Hit windows-tab

And you end up in this mess i'm attaching as a screenshot.

If you click on destktop 3 icon, you'll be there, but excel will be shown, full windowed, as if you were on desktop 2.
If you then minimize it, it goes to the desktop 2 taskbar.
If you click on desktop 1 icon, you'll get there, but excels will be shown instead of Chrome. If you put the mouse over desktop 1 icon and then click Chrome above virtual desktops, you'll get to desktop 1 with Chrome being shown as normal.

If you close one of the two excels, virtual desktops works again as expected.

What can I test to solve this mess?

Thanx a lot, I've been expecting a fix in every new compilation, with no luck.

hi there Clean install of Windows 10 on a yoga 2 11.6". I installed Yoga Picks from the store but that does nothing. When changing to either tent or tablet mode, the screen rotates correctly, but Windows does not switch to Tablet mode, with larger start menu etc. The Windows settings for tablet mode are set to ask when switching, but nothing happens. so, I have to manually click tablet mode from Action Centre. With Yoga Picks installed on Win8, it would notify you that it was in tent mode etc, so I guess the app does not work on Win10. Is it possible to have Windows automatically detect tablet mode on this device? Other than that, Windows 10 is great on this machine (with an SSD upgrade). Thanks

Answer:Lenovo yoga 2 11 not switching to tablet mode

Hello, The answer is yes, because the automatic detection is working on mine.In Parameters, Tablet Mode, the first tick box is on "Activated". The second option is set to "Memorize latest choice", and the third "Always ask when switching". The BIOS is of course up to date, and the latest drivers are installed.

Hello,

Still concerned about my intermittent start up problem.

Seems to be pretty good now.
Has started the last few days, several times, with no problems.
Hope it stays that way.

If you have a reasonably new HP desktop, would like to ask though:

On startups, do you momentarily see that blue screen with the HP logo and the six or so F key options flash on for about 1/2 second or so ? If so, always ?

My understanding is that this screen is Not the infamous BSOD, and "might" be normal during startups ?

Do you think this quick flashing of during the start process is "normal" ?

Thanks,
Bob

Answer:HP Desktops Startup Screen Question

I believe what your referring to is the bios screen its probably like the first 5 seconds when you power on the pc? this is normal. Does it look kinda like this?

So my yoga 2 jumps back and forth from laptop mode to tablet mode for no reason at all. The slighest tap or just randomness will change the mode of the compter. I have gone in the display settings and selected the option that says something like "do not ask me and do not switch modes" for my display, but it still does it anyway.  Once it is in tablet mode, the only way to get it back is to push the power buttom till its sleeping, then wake it up.  Also potentially unrealted, or maybe not, the screen has a random habit of flikering unprovoked. Thank you for your ideas at a solution in advance!

Hey All, Windows 10 on a Yoga 12, connected to a Onelink Pro Dock.  When the device is off the dock, it plays the sound through the laptop speakers, without a problem.When the device is plugged into the dock, it plays the sound through the laptop speakers, still. If we go into Sound Properties, and change the default device to the Onelink Dock, it does not seem to effect where it plays sounds from. ....HOWEVER, it will play the windows sounds through the speakers, but will continue to play any other sound (VLC/Youtube etc) through the laptop speakers. In Windows, it shows both devices as working, and functioning. If i disable the laptop speakers, and just leave the onelink dock speakers. It doesn't seem to correct the issue. Any thoughts? Anyone else having issues? Thanks,Isaiah

Answer:Yoga 12, Onelink Pro Dock, Audio Switching Issues

I recall one time where the sound was definitely not coming from where it should have been coming, but I don't run into this with any regularity. I recall at the time that I was not able to mute the sound, because the volume control was controlling one device, whereas the sound was coming from another. This was with Windows 10, a TP Yoga 12, and the OneLink Pro dock.

I got the Yoga 2 Pro earlier this year and love it, except for one big issue: I use it during a laptop during the day, and then when I get home, connect it to a larger 1080p monitor via HDMI.  You might guess where I'm going with this:  when I'm using it as a laptop, because of the incredible resolution, all of the icons are way too small, unless I go into the display settings and choose to view things at 200% (I think the screen says something like "change the size of all items"). That works great and things look amazing, except when I hit apply I have to log out and back in for it to take effect. Then when I hook it up to the monitor, everything is enormous - I have to go back and change the size to the smallest (I think 100%) setting.  This would be fine, but I have to log out and back in again. Every time I switch from the monitor to the laptop, I have to log out.  This is an enormous pain, as I normally have tons of programs open, some at specific locations on the screen - so I have to close them all and effectively recreate my desktop multiple times per day.  Am I doing something wrong?  Is there any way to switch from monitor to laptop screen without logging out?

Hi Fellows, I know this might be a little mundane for some of you advanced users with a lot of Computer knowledge.First I have a general question about my Logitech Media Cordless Mouse.I put braand new batteries in it today.2 AA Duracell.I am almost certain that the red laser light ould light up even wheen just moving the Mouse around .It is real dim now.It is one of those Logitech discontinued about 2 years back that's Black and Red.Shouldn't that laser light be showing red ? Number two why is when let's say for example you have your favorites open in the Sidebar on Firefox.I am having trouble moving the sliding bar p and down scrolling .It wants to hang.What can I do about this ? My last small problem is why when I am typing an e-mail and want to get rid of a letter for example where I have typed AA for example it wants to light up like it does when you select select all to copy and paste.Is a setting in the Mouse wrong.I am going to try to get another mouse to try.This one has been dropped about 3 times latelt.Onto carpet but still dropped.If I decide to buy a new cordless does anybody have any recommendations ? The reason I ask is that I have Carpel Tunnel in my right hand.Any help,guidanance,assistantance would be most greatfully appreciated.Heartbeat 85

Answer:Favorites Sliding Bar

Hi Heartbeat85 -Apart from the fact that personally I do not like this type of mouse (for the reasons you have listed) - Can you go to Control Panel and click on the Mouse item - Test the reaction and performance from the items listed in there -If all else fails borrow (or buy) a corded mouse $20 and check if it works 100% compared to your current one -The recieve/send function may also be faulty - Item 2 also relates to the first question -Any mouse with a "divided/raised" central area should suit your needs, as this stops your fingers from crossing over and aids grip - (If I read right) -I know it is a day or 2 since you asked this first - Has there been any change -The Email item may just be related to an overactive Spell Check ???Thank You -P.S. - At least I brought this back to the top so others may look a bit more -

the object of this exercise is to make the checkerboard slide
Exercise 3.6: Write an animation applet that shows a checkerboard pattern in which the even numbered
rows slide to the left while the odd numbered rows slide to the right. You can assume that the applet is 160
by 160 pixels. Each row should be offset from its usual position by the amount getFrameNumber() %
40. Hints: Anything you draw outside the boundaries of the applet will be invisible, so you can draw more
than 8 squares in a row. You can use negative values of x in g.fillRect(x,y,w,h). Here is a working
solution to this exercise:

1: When the screen shows a dark picture, then when I immediately switch back to a mostly white picture, it's far duller, and gradually (over the course of about 10 seconds), the white screen lightens more and more. I presume this is a battery saving feature. Can I disable it somehow? 2: Fan issues. Although the fan is quiet, I'd rather it be quieter still (or even silent). From previous experience, I know Lenovo tends to (heavily) err on the side of caution, but I'd rather be able to control the fan speeds more directly. Can I somehow half the fan speed or by some other arbitray amount? I'll keep an eye on temperatures, and I know all the risks.

I recently did a Windows 10 update to my Lenovo Yoge Ideapad  11 S on July 16th and now my touch screen does not work. When I check the drivers for my monitor and touch screen I noticed the driver was missing. I cannot get Lenovo or Microsoft to fix this. What else can I do to get that driver back ?

Answer:Lenovo Yoga Idea Pad Yoga 11 S touch screen issue

Hello Dws520Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Was this the creators update?
If so, have a look on the following post, this should show if your device has been tested with the update yet:
https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht503655
 
From what I can see, your unit does not seems to have made the list, which leads me to believe that this will be the cause of the issue, I would recommend that you revert back to the previous version of Windows, and observe if the fault still occurs or not.
 
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.==================================================================================Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!

Answer:Page sliding off desktop

Give it focus (click on the title bar or use alt-tab or win-tab),

press alt-spacebar (that pops up the window menu),

press M (for 'M'ove),

use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move the window where you want it,

Hi!
Three days ago I tried to listen to a song on my computer and no sound came out. I checked all the physical plugs to my speakers and they were fine. I looked at my drivers and nothing was wrong. I double clicked my volume control to find that the wave slider had been brought down to zero. I slid it back up and closed the volume control, However still nothing was coming out. I looked again to see it had returned to zero. The slider keeps moving to zero on its own at regular intervals between fifteen and sixty seconds.
I've scanned my computer with Advanced system care 7.2 several times but it says I'm good.
A friend of mine said it might be a problem with my MBR. So I ran MBR Check and I have two affected MBR codes. Sadly I know zero about MBR codes.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, Gregeno. Welcome to Major Geeks.

Have a look at this thread. The Unknown MBR may not be a ptoblem because it could be a custom partition created by the computer manufacturer although, it seems rather large (80 GB). At any rate, it wouldn't affect the mixer in XP. Is the computer exhibiting any other abnormal behavior?

Previously, in the mail app when I clicked on a URL in an email message, a browser screen would slide in from the right and display the url. Because I have a 27" screen, it did not look bad and was very useful.

Now that I did a restore and all the associated updates. The mail app opens a "metro?" browser in another window when you click on a url in an email message. I don't like this and would like to go back to having the browser slide in from the right and share part of the screen with the mail app.

Hello, All! This is my first problem request so if I forget something please humor me.

Yesterday I played a YouTube video on my eMachines laptop (reconditioned, and purchased in 2004, that has worked just fine all this time but I know has to be replaced). When I tried to play this video for my daughter, the slider on the volume control in the system tray and the slider on the Windows player refused to hold the volume I wanted and slid to the low position, causing the sound to be nil.

I went to a Windows forum and searched for the problem - to no avail - but downloaded SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition to check to see if I had bugs. Aside from the usual ad-related stuff, it found something called Trojan.Agent/Gen-Krpytik which it subsequently quarrantined and I deleted. However, that seemed not to have solved the problem.

Then I looked in my Bookmarks and found you lovely folks. Since I'd forgotten the name/password I'd used the last time I had a problem, I joined again, and spent two or three hours searching for a post describing the same problem. Today I continued by lonely search with no more success than I had yesterday.

I'm posting in hopes that you will be able to help me with this. There was one person who had a similar problem some time ago, but that post had never been answered. Help, please?

Many thanks and bright blessings!

Answer:No sound due to sliding volume control

Does it slide down on its own? Maybe one of the hotbuttons on the keyboard that turns the volume down is stuck.

Mouse grabs a window and moves it instead of sliding over it. Computer seems to running even slower. Have been running windows 10 and 7 for a few months. Also useing Maleware antibytes and webroot anti virus. The problem started recently but running SPeedzooka and Webroot usually solved the problem. I read that one should not run two antivirus programs at the same time. Webroot seems to be an anti-virus and anti-malware, so I was thinking of uninstalling the malware program, but that might not be the problem. I even now have trouble with the lock screen and the sign in screen. I am not sure if this is a software or hardware issue because somtimes I have more success using the touchpad instead of the mouse. That could just be a sympto and not the cause. I am typing this on a different laptop. Thanks Tom

Hello-

I came across a worksheet someone had put together ragarding a sliding scale a year ago here but I need to "expand the formula" and I am unsure how.

This is what I need:

I need to create a worksheet which will calculate commsiion based on the below sliding scale. I would like to design the worksheet in such a way that I can use the same worksheet for other sliding scales.

Commission percentage 10% on the first $30,000
Commission percentage 5% on the next $20,000
Commission percentage 2.5% on the next 50,000
Commisssion percentage 1% on the next 100,000
Commission percentage .5% on amounts in excess of $200,000.

I can get as far as the first $30,000 and the next 20,000 however after that I am unsure how to keep the formula moving along.
Thanks!!

Hello,
Program recommendation thread.
I need 4 virtual desktops; I have 1 monitor at 1080p, and 1 monitor at 720p. I would like the 1080p monitor to display the active virtual desktop, while the 720p monitor consistently maintains a "preview grid" of all the desktops available.

As of right now with the programs I've tried, the virtual desktops are stretching across both monitors. The preview panels cannot be consistently stuck to one monitor and not the other.

I need:
- The 4 virtual desktops to only appear on the 1080p monitor
- The preview grid to only appear on the 720p monitor
- The preview grid to always be active and open
- Preferably: To be able to crop and zoom in to which sections of each virtual desktop I want to appear in each preview grid

Which program out there would be most suitable for this? *NOTE* DexPot does not have all these fucntions
Thanks!

Hi there,

I've recently encountered a strange problem.

I run Windows 7 Ultimate with a Mecer 23" LED screen connected to A Radeon R9 280x via a DVI cable.

The problem I have is the PC is booting up fine but my screen never turns on. When I turn it on the LED light on the screen flashes once and dies. If I continue to turn it on and off for about 10/15 times the LED light will eventually start flashing slowly. Then I have to wait another 5-10 minutes before my screen will eventually turn on.

If I want to speed up the process I normally reset my PC and if I'm lucky on reboot the screen will turn on immediately. Sometimes the story as mentioned above will occur.

I also have my TV connected to my Graphics card through a HDMI cable and it has no trouble with display.. it picks up as soon as the PC starts booting.

My guess is.. either the Screen has something faulty with the DVI port.. or my graphics card is faulty?

Could anyone give some insight please.

Thanks
Charl

After six days the screen cracked (working with Best Buy now to get an exchange but hopes are slim...). In the likely event that BB does not cooperate, is it possible to take the screen out of my Yoga 2 Pro and use it to replace the screen in the Yoga 900? Thanks for any insights.

Hi everyone, Can anyone confirm if the same screen is used on the Yoga 3, 300 and 700 11" Versions? I need a spare to replace a broken screen, and looking at second hand models of the above models. Thank you in advance!

edit: subject line should say "Part" of screen

Hi, I have a NVidia GeForce 5500 video card and an Acer 193W 19" monitor.

The Video card has a VGA output and a DVI-D dual link output. The monitor has a VGA input and a DVI-D single link input.

When I connect the monitor via VGA, I can use the monitor's max resolution of 1680x1050. When I connect using DVI-D single link, and choose 1680x1050, part of the screen is cut off (horizontally) and when I mouse to the edge of the screen, it scrolls right to show the part that was cut off (which then cuts off a small part of the left side). I don't have this problem on VGA.. does anyone know why the DVI connection would do this or how to correct it?

Thanks
 

Answer:Switching from VGA to DVI cuts off pat of screen

This is a stretch...The DPI setting might need adjusting for DVI output use. Start/Control panel/rt click 'Display'/properties/settings

If this is incorrect, then change it back before attempting a different settings change.

Windows XP Pro SP3Client services for netware has disabled the welcome screen and fast switching. In order to restore them I am told I must uninstall client services for Netware.The computer in question is a laptop that is frequently used on my home network and I do not wish to lose this ability. My partner and I both have user accounts on the laptop, and prefer using the welcome screen which shows all user accounts.Will uninstalling client services for Netware impact my ability to use the laptop on my home network?

I have a laptop with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250, which has a Power Saving GPU for battery use and a High Performance GPU for when it's mains powered.

If I am on battery and then plug it in, I get a blue screen as soon as I click to confirm the switch!

If I start the computer while plugged in, windows fails to start!

The computer was fine until a couple of days ago when all of a sudden the screen froze and nothing looked the way it was meant to.
Just before it failed I didn't change anything, or update anything, it seemed to be untriggered.

Answer:Blue screen when switching GPU

If you had a recent update from Microsoft which included an update from ATI for your GPU you might want to revert to before that update or at the very least revert to a date when you did not experience a problem.

I don't know if HP is one of the OEM that have updates specific to the GPU's in their laptops but you might want to go to their official website and see if this applies to your specific model.

Going from battery and the low power GPU to power mode and the high end GPU is a problem with quite a few of the laptops out there so don't think it is only you. Best of luck.

When you say it "switches" do you mean it goes from one screen to the other, as in back and forth repeatedly, or does it show one screen and then go to the other screen and stay.

Here's my problem.
My system is set to shut power to Monitor after 20 mins and to HD 30Mins. This has been working perfectly and suits my position as i frequently have to leave my PC fo 30 mins or so.
Add thing last night the monitor was showing the open page (actually Win Live Mail) but the screen was also sjowing a number of rectangle areas a couple of inches wide with pale green and pink lines. The curser was still visible but the mouse an w]keyboard did not work. There was no response at all. I had to close down by pressing the on button for 5 secs. It appeared that the HD had closed down as had the monitor but the image stayed on the screen. Onrebooting I get no response on the Monitor at all. Not even a flicker. I have tried a different monitor but the result is the same. I listened carefully when I pressed the on button and I could hear the HD spin but it stopped very quickly and no other sound emitted aprt fromvery slight fan noise. So I'm stumped as I can't even get into the bios.
Can't think what to try next. Any ideas gratefully received
Thanks

PS I am on my old XP at the moment!

Answer:Blank Screen on switching on

Wellfor hat it is worth, I have just tried a PCI graphics card and the result is the same. The HD is spinning when switched on but still not a flicker on the screen. I have no way of knowing if the system is booting up. Have completely run out of ideas of what more I can try.
Any ideas please?

Hello

I have my Asus CG5270-BP-004 hooked up to an HDMI cord which goes to an Monoprice HDMI switcher-to my Onkyo TX-SR605 receiver w/7.1 and onto my Home Theater(Secondary Monitor) TC-P54G10. My primary monitor is the Asus VH203. Since I hooked up this system, whenever HDMI is selected on the TV, it hijacks the Primary Screen without me doing it. I have powerstrip setup and I have been having to unplug the HDMI cord in order for the TV not to steal the primary display. Even if I don't have the PC HDMI cord selected it still does this.

Also, for sound I am trying to get 7.1 on my HT setup while connected to the secondary monitor. It says under Realtek-2 speakers @ 24bit-192HZ, and HDCP no. Why am I getting 2 speakers and no?

Thanks

both of the problems that you are running into are not uncommon. You're not the only one
1) video cards will sometimes automatically switch the primary screen to a certain output. In your case this is HDMI. Your card is smart enough to realize though that if there is nothing plugged in to the HDMI port it should not do this. I Suggest you try are a) forcing the primary screen back onto your computer monitor by right clicking the desktop, go into video resolution and doing it here every time or b) going into the system bios and designate the output to your computer monitor as primary. That would only work under very limited circumstances and would re... Read more

Hi guys,

My motherboard is a Asus P4S333/C.

Theres a serious problem with this computer i have. When i switch it on, i can hear the fans running, dvd drives work (ejecting works), everything seems fine. But nothing comes on the screen. I know for certain it's not the monitor or monitor cable because it works fine on my other computer.

When i turn it on, the hard drive light (yellow) and power light (green) both go on and about 15seconds later the harddrive light goes off and it just stays like that. I've taken the CMOS battery out overnight and put it back in in the morning but nothing still comes on screen. I've also tried taking out all the pci cards, changed the ram, even changed the harddrive but still same problem. I don't hear any beeps to indicate any error when switching on the computer. Is it a CPU problem?

Can anyone help? How can i tell if it's a motherboard or CPU problem? Thanks in advance...

Regards,
Brandon.

Answer:Nothing on screen when switching power on!!! :(:(:(

Try to hit F8 upon booting and start in safe mode.If that works then uninstall your video drivers reboot and reinstall your drivers.Make sure you use the right ones...

My Windows 8 laptop keeps randomly switching from the desktop to the Start screen. I've read that it's when you swipe your finger half way across the touchpad from the left and that to stop it you need to go to and that if you turn off switching between recent apps it should stop it.
 
However, it's still switching to the Start screen randomly. Sometimes I'm not even touching the touchpad and I'm certainly not always swiping across it when it switches. It's not that I've been catching the Start key either on the keyboard.
 
How can I stop it randomly switching from the desktop to the Start screen?
 
Thanks.
