Show full version of the posting: drawing "skewed"

I have a problem when switching from paperspace to modelspace. THe drawing allows me to do it once. After that, the next time I go from PS to MS the drawing is "skewed". THe crosshair appears skinny and the drawing is "squished" and when I click, the window begins further to the right. I can go back into PS and everything looks fine. I can work inside the viewport fine but if I try to go to MS I will have the same problem. I can save and reopen the same drawing and everything is fine until I switch on the second time. It seems to be happening on all drawings.
I am running AutoCAD 2002 LDD, with WinXP on a dell D630 laptop. THis didn't happen to me when I ran the same stuff on my HP. Could it be a graphics card?

What are your system specs?Is your viewport locked or unlocked?How is your UCS set at the moment?When did the problem first occur?AutoCAD 2002?  All updates applied?

I figured it out. I had the properties box docked to the left hand side of the screen. When I close it, the problem goes away!

Those self-inflicted gunshot wounds are real killers.

Do you have all the updates and hotfixes? I thought they tried to fix that a while back.
