Problems I think started a few days ago when I was net surfing and playing some Runescape. Suddenly, There were these vertical thin green lines on my monitor - they were bunched together into about 5 bands that went from the top of the screen to the bottom. After a couple of clicks and site changes, they disappeared, but game back later. Also, display issues on sites started happening, though video and DVD capability seems fine.
In the meantime, I decided to get back and play some Oblivion so I went out and got the latest update.
There are flickering shapes all over the display. If I look at people, it almost appears as if there is the kind of snow that you used to see on TV. I can play with the flickering for a short time, then the screen goes blank, locking up my computer completely so the only way to get out is for a power-button power down and restart. It's not the resolution or anything like that, I have played this game a great deal in the past with no issues. I tried re-installing the game with the same results.
I have a Dell Dimension XPS Gen 2 3.2 GHZ with a Radeon 9800 XT video card, and I run on XP Home Edition (5.1) with Service Pack 2. I am running DirectX 9.0C.
Is this my video card starting to give up the ghost or is this a problem that is out there that I don't know about?
Oh, about the same time, my mouse seems to get 'stuck' temporarily in a spot if I leave it there. It takes a couple of seconds of moving the mouse around the pad or clicking the mouse (no matter what it is over, so I get taken a lot of places I don't intend to go) to get it moving again, then it is fine until it sits again.
