    This might be a hardware problem?

    Thank You JMV

    unfortunately it did not work in fact it made it worse

    side note i used the laptop driver as i have used the desktop one previously but is seems the laptop driver makes it even worse
    than the desktop one

    i doubt it is the fiscal hardware as it worked fine on win 7

    any suggestions
