I tried the search function, but I couldn't find anything that fit what I seemed to be looking for. The nature of my problem is that in the startup, graphics, video, etc., there are multicolored (generally green) graphic distortions (not quite sure what else to call them) taking the shape of boxes and both horizontal and vertical lines. As well, the mouse is severely distorted as well - various lines go across it horizontally and as the lines go across the mouse, the gaps are transparent. Needless to say, this makes it somewhat hard to see. My video card (ATI Radeon 9800 Pro) has been working flawlessly, and I have never had a single graphic problem since I've had this computer. Below is the data gathered from dxdiag in case it's needed: Name: 128 DDR ATI Radeon 9800 Manufacturer: ATI Technologies Inc. Chip Type: Radeon 9800AGP DAC Type: Internal DAC(400MHz) Approx.

Thank you.
