Hi

I'm running XP on a AMD Athlon64 2.2ghz with 512Mram.

I'm having problems with my display (graphics). My machine is about 3 years old with no major problems so far.
On initial start up the display seems fine but after a while the icons on desktop appear as a series of
vertical broken lines (picture,gap,picture,gap) - hope this makes sense. This is also true on IE7 where some of the graphics appear the same way. The problem is starting to get worse and is now affecting the screensaver.
The only game i run is doom3 - this was fine for the last 3 months but is now running poorly - with the graphics breaking up into large triangles and what looks like data across the screen.

My graphics card is a Radeon9800 pro and secondary.

Any advice appreciated.

Graphics driver update would be a good starting point.

And what do mean by "secondary". secondary what?

Radeon 9800 PRO
Radeon 9800 PRO - Secondary
