  1. I'm running windows XP pro. I up graded my video card to Ati Radeon 9600 Pro 128MB. I picked up on ebay for $30. On the boot screen the lines are up and down all over it is even hard make out. The next screen is fine working great. Then the windows load screen is messed up. The welcome screen is fine and clear of lines then right before going to the desktop screen the mouse pointer disappears it is their but can not be seen the lines are gone but so is the mouse pointer? Every time I reboot more lines are removed still no mouse pointer? What is this. running micro star mainboard 1200 mz athlon cpu ,512mg memory keystone. Dragon eye scepter montior.

    It might be that the graphics card is faulty.

    Could you try your card in another computer in order to see if you get the same result?
