    Working only in Excel , my screen gets distorted and data disappears

    Hello,

    I am currently have an issue in Excel 2007 that is quite baffling. My help desk has no clue what it might be.

    Basically, I'll be working in excel and all of a sudden, my screen sort of blurs; gets scramble like below. any ideas would be much appreciated. This only happens when using Excel.

    Thanks
    Patrick

    I've seen this happen before, not sure what causes it, but try pressing F9 to recalculate the sheet, or minimize-maximize maybe

    Not sure
    You should hit F5, because chances are I've edited this post at least 5 times.

    Agree with speshul, I have had this before too. I think it has to do with memory, but recalc or window min/max seems to clear it
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools

    Could it be the graphics card?

    It's a Lenovo X230 which I use with a docking station and external monitor. right now I am using the pc stand alone with out dock and external monitor. I want to see if I can narrow the problem down.

    I too believe this to be a RAM issue. As suggested, refreshing the screen should do the trick. If the problem persists, consider closing down one or more other applications you may have open.
