  I had what I think is a similar problem with my Dell Inspiron laptop which 
uses an NVidia graphics card.

  I went into msconfig, on the advice of another screen reader user, and 
disable the running at startup of all the nvidia utilities (all the ones which 
began with the letter "N"), and rebooted.  It seems to have solved the problem.

  I only did this yesterday, so haven't had time to do much testing, but it's 
something to keep in mind anyway.

    Hi people.
    I have a spanking new Dell vostro 1400 laptop running win xp pro sp2.
    I have jaws 8.0 2173 I think the number is.
    When I type in wordpad or notepad I can't read what I've typed on the 
braille display. I have to use the display. I have the same problem with speech 
but not always. The display is a pacmate 20 3.70 it says when it starts up.
    I know the display works as it displays when I focus the desktop and it 
seems to read parts of controls in dialogue boxes but not always the text, just 
1 of 3 etc.
    I think there must be something sitting on top of the windows or a screen 
animation in the way or something. I threw google desktop out the window but no 
    How do I fix this?
