Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

We have deployed Virtualbox 3.0.8 to a number of customers. They are all running a web browser in seamless mode on a variety of laptops and desktops including Dell and Lenovo. The guest OS is Windows XP as are most of the host OS. They are having an issue where the entire screen turns into a multi-color hodgepodge of lines and static. It looks similar to when you have poor television reception with an antenna. I have seen this issue myself on a Lenovo laptop running Windows XP. At the time, I suspected our video drivers were the cause and updated them to the latest. That didn't fix this problem.

One of our users described the problem like this: "I had one this AM that occurred as I opened an email. Others have gotten it while opening Office apps. Others have received it while surfing the web. The entire screen becomes skewed and starts shaking. You can still move your mouse and can actually do a graceful shutdown, but the screen looks like it is having a seizure." These users only use a web browser within the Virtualbox guest. The other apps them mentioned run on the host OS.

Has anyone seen this and know what is going on?
