I know this forum is about IM but I've been having issues with my monitor screen
moving up & down at a high rate & I'm thinking it's a bad driver or would a virus do it.

Is there a software program that can diagnose the problem
here's my computer & video specs.

Computer: Dell DImension 8300 2.8 Mhz
NVIDIA: GeForce4 MX 440 with AGP8X
Monitor: COMPAQ 7500
DivX Plus Directshow Filters
DivX Plus Web Player
Java 6

    haha

    If its physically moving.. then you have some serious problems

    But I take it you mean the picture is moving. This is either a driver problem, a virus or the cable or video card is not connected properly or is on its way out.

    I had a similar problem and it was a defective video driver. Apparently there was a conflict with something I had installed. I updated the driver and it was fixed. Hopefully you will be a lucky

    Significant Changes to the Facebook Newsfeed Algorithm

    Facebooks just announced substantial changes to the news feed algorithm with changes to the types of content that will be given preference in the news feed. As has been expected for a while Facebook is tending more and more towards killing organic page traffic. Probably motivated to increase ad revenue. Also sounds particularly tailored towards taking down url only style posts.

    What to do with your Content?

    Imagine that you have just finished writing a blog or a piece that checks all the boxes. It has great value, is well designed, interactive and can be a hit with the audience. Now, you are sitting there and wondering what to do next. That is a situation which most bloggers and content writers, especially beginners, encounter on a frequent basis. Most people do not know where to go next and what to do with their content, once they are finished with everything. Well, the answer to those questions is fairly simple. When you are done writing a blog or content page and are satisfied with end product, the logical next step is distribution and publishing. The top content marketers and bloggers today, are of the opinion that while content may be king; it's the distribution which matters. Jonathan Perelman went on record to say that content is king and distribution the queen.
