Solved: White Box in upper left hand corner

Q: Solved: White Box in upper left hand corner

I had a "System error 32" on my PC screen and went search the internet for a solution. I found one that said to go to the windows folder and delete a file that had "warnhp in it". I did so, but now if have a white box in the upper left corner of the screen under a group of my icons. I can move the icons, but the bos remains.
When I right click on the box, and select "Properties", the file listed is file://C:\WINDOWS\warnhp.html
When I right click on the box and select source, it comes up with file titled C_WINDOWS_warnhp (1) -Notepad with the following info.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello there

So after installing and tweaking windows 8, some small annoyances remain. One of them that i encounter every day is as follows:
I have 2 monitors. Primary on the right, secondary on the left.
If i take my cursor up to the top left of the primary monitor, it gets "stuck" and will not move over to the left hand screen (secondary monitor). I believe this is caused by the APP bar which I have disabled as per (http://www.ghacks.net/2012/08/19/disable-windows-8-mouse-over-corner-interfaces/).
However the problem still remains. If i go aproximately 10 pixels down from the upper left hand corner, i can mouse over to the other screen fine. No menu comes up, my cursor just hits a wall. I have made sure both montior tops are in line in the screen resolution

I tried to shoot a video of it, but of course camstudio does not work in windows 8 (sigh).
steps to reproduce are, drag your mouse to the very top left corner with the intention of moving it to the second monitor.
How can i disable? I have tried the GPO setting for EdgeUI which creates the registry key ( DisableTLcorner) in the link above.

As a bit of background, if one is constantly using VNC to manage other peoples computers, I do not want to steal focus from their mouse by dragging my cursor over the centre of the screen. So i bring my mouse cursor to the very top (title bar area) and try
and move between screens. Obviously this is a windows 8 "feature". Anyone else a... Read more

A:Cannot mouse over upper left hand corner on dual monitors

Um no, I have never in my life found that installing a monitor driver ever fixed anything.

there is nothing in the application log that has anything to do with this problem as its a mouse event. No event is obviously generated when i am moving the mouse around the screen.

you cannot reproduce? I have installed a few more windows 8s and the problem exists on every single one.

here is a video of the event. Finaly got camstudio working properly, just have to do the whole screen. in the video, i try and move the mouse in the upper left and lower left of the screen. the two screens are different wallpapers to make it easier to see.
I have managed to find a service that allows uploads, the video file is here so you can see what im talking about. I hope that makes it clearer.

My computer is about a year old now, built by me and my dad. Recently it's been having some issues though-- for a while I think it was over heating, causing it to reboot. At least I hope it was just overheating. One time when I booted up my computer it told me overclocking failed, which was odd because I hadn't messed with any of the settings (all still defaults).

But heres the major issue: If you boot it up, after the BIOS it'll give you a black screen with a blinking underscore up in the left corner. If you're quick enough you can get it to go into safe mode, etc. You can also choose which drive to boot from--- I found that it only gives you the black screen with certain drives. But, I did notice that its very slow when you have the "loading" screen for windows-- it'll slowly fade in and start loading, then it goes to a normal speed.

A:Black Screen + White Underscore in Upper Left Corner

I could be a memory issue. Try removing RAM one stick at a time and seeing if any of them are causing it. Then try them individually in each slot. It could be the motherboard if only one slot is faulty.

Apologies if this question has been answered elsewhere.

I have a Dell GX Piece of $H!t and when I boot it up all I get is a flashing white line in the top left hand corner. I don't see a BIOS screen. Am happy to install linux on it - just need to get to the BIOS screen so I can boot up off a USB drive.

I'm a network admin for about 30 users. About 10 of them are having a problem with any new document in Word (both XP and 2003). A small hollow square appears in the upper left corner. They're unable to delete it, and it freezes the "File" button on the Menu bar. Sometimes it freezes Word totally. They are able to print existing documents opened in Explorer. Very annoying! Any thoughts?

My laptop will unexpectly move the mouse to the upper right hand corner. It will also occasionally open up the action center window or settings windows. It also sometime dims the display. This has been very frustrating. I have tried a lot of recommendations online but nothing appears to work. Also while it is doing this I notice circles on the right had side of the display that come and go. It is almost like someone is controlling my laptop.

> My new protege has heating issue. upper left corner(power button area) is heating up pretty bad and doesn't cool down easy. Is this common for everyone, or is there anyway that i can reduce the heat?

I guess this is your first ?small? notebook which supports such big CPU/GPU performance. You will notice this on all small (~13?) notebooks. Why? Because the cooling modules are placed on the left and the whole warm air flows from this direction.
I?ve got U400 series. It?s 13? unit and the left area is warm too because of the cooling modules.

Furthermore the unit supports an overheating protection which means that the notebook would shut down automatically if the temperature is too high.
Does the notebook shut down automatically? No?
Well, in such case the temperature is ok and not too high.

Of course you can change the Win 7 power management settings in order to decrease the CPU and GPU performance which would lead to lower heat dissipation. This keep the temperature at lower level.

Ok so there's a really old thread about this already. But it didn't solve my problem. When I boot vista, a little white square appears in the upper left corner. It's not my wallpaper. On the old thread they have resolved the problem as being an ATI GPU Driver problem, and the update fixed it. But here's my problem, I don't have an ATI GPU.

When I right click the little white sqaure I can open up its properties, and in the properties it has a name of some website. Shortly after I even read it a "close program" window comes up. I click on close and the sqaure dissapears until the next time I boot.

Leaving the white square on just messes with whatever programs Im running. For example: If im watching a movie in full-screen, it will randomly just exit out of full screen. It doesnt do that once the white sqaure is off.

Well thanx for hearing out my problem, any help would be great.

For an unknown reason after every restart some icons will return to the starting position in the upper-left corner of the desktop (Windows7_64ult), even though I previously located elsewhere. I.e. they are listed below each other, according to updated. It is not happening to all icons, but that on the desktop since few days back. Others are on their position where were before. I hope it describe clearly. Some icons simply don't want to remain at the position where I moved them before. It sucks a bit, can be done something about it? Thanks for any advice

My laptop has an indintation in the upper left corner of the touchpad which normally may be double-tapped to disable/enable the touch pad itself, however, it has recently ceased working. I use it quite frequently as I write to avoid the complications of my palm on the touch pad as I type, however now I attempt to double tap this corner and it acts as if I am double tapping any other part and it is simply moving my cursor to wherever my mouse is hovering at the time and highlighting that portion of the writting. Essentially, it's acting as if this location on the touch pad is no more special than the direct center.However, the scroll bar I use on the right hand side of the touch pad is working perfectly, and the pinch-to-zoom feature is flawless. In attempting to find help on the issue, I only find people trying to figuer out why their touch pad is disabled because they don't know about the upper-left trick.This might, perhaps, be a problem with my computer itself as it is several years old, but I sincerely hope not.

My laptop has an indintation in the upper left corner of the touchpad which normally may be double-tapped to disable/enable the touch pad itself, however, it has recently ceased working. I use it quite frequently as I write to avoid the complications of my palm on the touch pad as I type, however now I attempt to double tap this corner and it acts as if I am double tapping any other part and it is simply moving my cursor to wherever my mouse is hovering at the time and highlighting that portion of the writting. Essentially, it's acting as if this location on the touch pad is no more special than the direct center.However, the scroll bar I use on the right hand side of the touch pad is working perfectly, and the pinch-to-zoom feature is flawless. In attempting to find help on the issue, I only find people trying to figuer out why their touch pad is disabled because they don't know about the upper-left trick.This might, perhaps, be a problem with my computer itself as it is several years old, but I sincerely hope not. Any help at all is appreciated.

I have a Pentinum 2, 350 MHz computer running Win98SE. I have attempted to down load new video drivers or other programs and when I do I do not get the window that allows me to complete the download. Instead I get a little multi colored checkerboard in the upper left corner. How do I get rid of this so that I can complete my driver or program downloads ? It is getting very frustrating as I do not know what is causing this little checkerboard to appear instead of the expected program.

Any help to correct this problem would be appreciated.

Hi, suggests it's not seeing your disk at all - nothing to boot from.

Check your connections, check your disk - e.g. using a live boot disk or connect it to another PC.

If you can manage to read it again, run chkdsk on it.

First backup any files you want off of the computer with an Ubuntu Live CD saving to an external USB HDD/Flash Drive.
If you have a Windows 7 DVD or Restore CD put that in the computer and choose your language and then Restore Your Computer.
If you do not have a disc, then you probably have a restore partition. Restart the computer on the logo screen when you see the message Press (Key) to Enter E-Recovery do so, this will restore your computer to Factory Defaults. Be sure to backup first.

I have an excel screen with a couple of top rows frozen.
I scroll down the bottom section, row after row, using the regular excel scrollbar.
I do NOT select any cells.

I would like to display in one of the frozen top row cells the address (or contents) of the cell currently showing in the upper left hand corner of the non-frozen screen as I scroll along. Again, I am not stopping to highlight the cell (or any cell; just scrolling along).

So, for example, if I've scrolled down to row 102, I would like cell A1 to show "A102" (or its contents).

Hi guys,i have a problem, i was working on this PC that had a problem. the problem was - when it is turned on,nothing comes on.There is a black screen and blinking cursor (looks like an under-score) [blink]_[blink]that just keeps blinking.Okay this is what I did. I thought the hard disk was damaged, I get a brand new hard disk drive (SATA) and inserted in, and start installing the System Restore Discs and Operating system CD, it is a HP Compaq Desktop dx2200 MT.Every thing goes perfectly well, it starts up fine, XP is installed up and running, all other software are being installed.It all looks great up until I slave the original hard disc in order to copy back the users files back onto the new disc. By the way all copying goes well until the PC suddenly freezes, it doesn't respond to all the keyboard keys or the mouse whatsoever, even pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL in an attempt to open the the Task Manager doesn't work. I turn of the PC by pressing the power button. Remember there are 2 hard discs connected now in the PC, Master and Slave, both are SATA.When I turn it on, the blinking starts again.I try removing the original hard drive (the one I slaved) and still it doesn't boot correctly. I try booting either of them alone, still nothing,I don't think it is a virus problem, because I installed Sophos and had it updated straight after the OS, and if I had connected the slave hard disk it could had detected it.these are things I have tried.1.Removed RAM card and p...

It's a Compaq system...did you check the Compaq support site?

From what I see, HP system have proprietary boot mechanisms...which isn't necessarily good for what may be the problem.

My guess is that the MBR is damaged, Black Screen (fixmbr) - http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;314503. Using the fixmbr command from the XP Recovery Console of a MS Genuine XP CD...is the normal cure.

But you have a Compaq and I don't know if that command would be effective with your system.

I don't know if this is the correct place to post this question. My daughter was using my MSI laptop and when she tried to start the computer all that came up was a black screen with the cursor in the upper left corner. She selected the restore option which came up because the other options would not do anything.

Is there any possible way to recover my files, pics, etc. or is it just gone now? I'm really upset because I had five years of photos of my grandchildren. =(

I have a blue screen problem. Don't know if I should post it here or not but here is my problem.

I have windows 8. I updated to 8.1. So far so good. That is until this morning. I don't know if this is in fact a Windows 8.1 issue or if anyone has ever experienced this before. I turned on the computer. I got the 'Hi' message followed by the next message of windows getting my apps updated. I then had a blank blue screen with a 'start' in the top left hand corner and an arrow in a box pointing to the next page. On the next page I had APPS on the top left hand corner and a blank box. I typed in 'desk top' even tho' that is not an 'app' as such. It took me to a blank black page with a bin in the top left hand corner. It looked liked my machine had been completely wiped. This has never happened before and I tried to Google it but the answers given did not have any correlation to what happened to me...any clues anyone?" Sorry guys, I just reread my post....I forgot to say that my computer has been functioning as normal all day .. What I did was to turn it off and back on again and it worked as normal. The thing is, I don't now trust it and want to know what? why and is it something I need to address.

Hey guys,

I recently had the moneypak FBI virus and cleaned my registry using Ccleaner and also cleared my Temp files manually (which actually got rid of the problem).

Since I cleared this, the top left hand corner of my screen (roughly 2 icon squared in size) does not allow any direct clicking or interaction. The area is not obstructed by any objects and I can still drag things out of that area as long as my cursor is on an area outside of said area.

This affects all programs I use, including my browsers, Steam and Explorer.

I realise I have probably deleted a registry file I shouldn't have but have had no luck finding any other people who have had the same problem, any help you guys can offer would be most appreciated! Cheers!

Hey guys, i honestly can't believe how many people are having this issue, so simply once and for all... there is an easy solution to this problem. You do not need to uninstall/reinstall anything, change bios, get a new graphics card (in most situations, only significantly old graphics cards cannot play this game on minimum settings), or anything.

To fix... go into properties, compatibility and tick the box that says run in 640x480resultion... this minimizes the work the GPU needs to do and tricks the game into thinking it is adequate. In game, you can then alter the resolution to the correct one for your monitor.

Hi guys,

The other day I was using my old desktop and using firefox when suddenly firefox froze up while browsing and I was unable to ctrl+alt+del or click start or anything for that matter in order to close it down. I then turned off my computer manually by pressing the power button as I sometimes do when my computer freezes and turned it back on. Unfortunately, when I turned it back on the computer is stuck on the black screen with the blinking underscore in the top left hand corner.

I unfortunately am not good with computers and would like to avoid reformatting my computer, as this old desktop contains the largest amount of my media such as music and movies that I had been meaning to put onto an external hard drive. Furthermore, I do not have an XP installation disc and am unable to locate the system recovery discs that came with the PC (like I said, it's old, circa 2006, and they are most likely lost somewhere in the house or thrown out by now). Thank you for all the help and support in advance.

A:Windows XP black screen with blinking underscore in top left hand corner

if you haven't tried, as you switch on press the F8 key up and down repeatedly, if this works you will be at the safe mode menu - try last known good config. If still no go, try booting to BIOS - if this doesn't work I would say hard drive issue. Download the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic program, this has to be burned to a disk. Then put the disk in and let it boot the pc and run the test.

A:Holding X240 by bottom left hand corner causes screen to black out and flicker

Hi, I had this problem several times as well. First time it happened was I picked up my x240 (with lid open) from the corner to the left of the trackpad, and the screen flickered and crashed. The x240 crashed the same way when I was using the x240 on my lap, while resting my left elbow to the left of the trackpad, supporting my chin reading the a document on the screen. I think the crash happens when there's pressure to the area to the left of the trackpad. It would be great if anyone else could replicate the same problem, and hopefully somone can find a fix!

I have an issue with a white rectangular box appearing in the top left corner of my laptop screen.

It covers the icons behind it and renders them 'unclickable'.

Nothing happens if the box itself is clicked on.

It does not stay on top of other windows, just the desktop.

It appears after the laptop has been to sleep and on occasions, just seems to appear randomly.

I believe it may be a problem with Display Link drivers i use for a universal adapter for multiple monitors. I have asked around on display links forums but i am yet to find a solution (updated all drivers, uninstalled, re-installed, etc.), so i thought I would ask you guys if you have any ideas.

Other places i have found similar issues:

I have attached a screenshot of the issue.

Hey I just went through something very similar. I found that my SATA cable connecting the hard drive to the motherboard had failed. I replaced it with a new SATA cable, and it booted right up. Try the cable first if you have one lying around, plus its a cheap solution. If you replace the cable and it still won't boot up, it might be your hard drive. Seeing as how your machine is that old, it could fail at any time.

Do you get anything on the screen when you turn it on?
