New Video Card causing problems

I just received a new graphics card after the old one blew out. It's an NVIDA Geforce FX5500.

Problem is, two of the games my dad an I play - Maple Story and ijji's Golf King - start messing up while we're playing either game. The Maple Story game suddenly gets a heavy red tint and all the text gets screwed up, and in Golf King, the 3D effects go out of wack (Hard to explain). I assume it's because of the new graphics card, and I have updated to the newest one, but I have no idea how to fix this without changing to a new card. Any advice? Thanks.

That was already done when the computer was fixed, actually. But I reinstalled it a day later just to be sure.

I'd recommend you take it back to the "FIXER" because as jigga211 has just suggested, it doesn't sound like the old drivers were properly removed from your system. But, if they were uninstalled and new drivers were installed correctly, your machine wasn't quite "FIXED", actually.
