Forgive my lack of computer knowledge, but when i start my computer and it starts to load, (prior to the windows logo showing), everything on the display is in an hour glass shape. When i play games like flightsim that are on my hard drive, everything is ok, however,when I put int he disc to play Tiger Woods from a CD, I am unable as the screen immediately go to the hour glass shape. I have checked that I have the correct drivers to my monitor, etc. Can anyone shed any light on this? My resolution is set at 1024 X 768 on my display. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi vman72, welcome to Geeks to Go! <_<

Sounds like your monitor is adjusted to display 1024x768 and an improper refresh rate. Try changing your refresh rate (75mhz), or screen resolution, then readjust your monitor to fit.
