Hi MJT –
I think I may have an idea of what is going on. Without going into too much detail, the gist is that you'll want to check out ALL the shortcuts that point to Messenger, and make sure Run as Administrator isn't checked. You'll also need to go and do the same on msnmsgr.exe directly.
First, check the shortcut on your taskbar. Right-click on the icon, then right click on ‘Windows Live Messenger' -> Properties -> Compatibility -> Privilege Level. You'll also want to do this on the Start Menu shortcut, the Desktop shortcut if you have one, and any others you can find.
Then on one of the shortcuts, click ‘Open File Location' and then right-click and change the compatibility settings on the msnmsgr.exe.
Let me know if that helps.May 1, 2011 at 11:55 pm in reply to: is there going to be a next new big social network? #177338
Definitely. We may not see the waves as before (e.g. myspace went from being huge to oblivian in a span of a few short years), but we'll definitely see a lot of innovation in this space over the next decade. I'm not sure whether Facebook or Twitter will mortph or go away, but new ideas like Color (Color – photo sharing based on location) are sure to be huge eventually.
Network Attached Storage (NAS)
I've got these too – I opened the attachment (on an iDevice anyway), and the text is even more confusing, since its legit Amazon links… probably embedded Java, ActiveX or something… strange.
What happens when you start the computer in Safe Mode?
ShellExView can probably help. Be careful though, you don't want to disable many of the Microsoft shell extensions.
Use 2 instead of 1.
What happens when you plug the laptop into the router via cable? What happens when you plug the laptop directly into the modem? Have you tried restarting the router?May 12, 2010 at 2:49 am in reply to: IMing Questions to the Instructor in the College Classroom #176930
Those are some interesting requirements. I don't think you're going to find anything off-the-shelf that does all of that.
Jabber or even Office Communicator will satisfy some of the requirements, but things like saving all the messages to a text file… that isn't a standard feature, one would have to save each conversation manually.
I think what you are looking for is an app that would run on the instructors computer, and students would connect to using a web browser. Anonymity isn't usually a standard feature, but each computer could be configured to use a generic account (Computer1, Computer2, etc)
I suspect bad memory. Does 2hrs into your session happen to be when you are also under the highest memory load?April 15, 2010 at 6:34 pm in reply to: Windows moves app focus away from chat boxes every 10-20 secs #176828
Boot your computer into safe mode. (F8 just before the ‘Starting Windows' boot screen). Does it happen there?

Wow, you were right on about the cabling interference! I unplugged everything from my laptop besides the VGA cable and the screen was crystal clear. Thanks! Anything I can do to combat this problem besides keep everything unplugged? Basically just buy a better VGA cable?
EDIT: Does this cable seem like a good choice?
I looked at that cable but I really can't determine if it is of a high enough quality.
The key word you are looking for is shielding, a cable with a lot of shielding will prevent interference.
Without getting a new cable, you can probably set up your cabling such that the wires don't touch. I'm guessing that the problem is from the power cable, but it could really be anything.
Btw, I also have an M1530 and totally love it. 🙂

I'm using a VGA cable with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
Is it a good cable? Is it running in close proximity to other cabling?
The next logical step would be for you to test the all 3 variables (computer, cable, display). It looks like that display doesn't support any digital inputs (DVI/HDMI), but if it does you should definitely give them a try.
If I had to guess I'd say it's cabling interference, but analog monitors always look like crap. Sometimes I can see scan lines on a few older analog monitors that are hanging around.
Are you driving it with HDMI or VGA?
With software like AIM, I don't think x64 is going to cause any problems, and yes it works on Windows 7. What kind of problems is s/he having?
