Ok so I tried installing WoW onto my computer, and it wouldn't work, everytime I tried to start the game it would just put the monitor into stand by (sleep) mode.

So it would then boot up to a blue screen and say that the file ati2dvag was on an infinite loop, so I did what I thought was right and deleted the file in safe mode.

Anyway so after that I uninstalled WoW but my computer graphics are completey messed up. I have lines all over the computer screen and the colouring of my desktop is all wrong and such.

Basically I need help in fixing the graphics card I assume, because maybe something WoW did to it or when I delted that file or something along those lines...

I got my computer specs from that Belarc program, please help me big time as it's not my computer and I'm going to be killed if I can't fix it! Thanks!

You will need to find drivers for the ATI video card and download them to somewhere on the computer where you can get to them. A good idea is to make a folder called downloads on the "C" drive and put the drivers there. Read up on the ATI website to see if you can just double click on the new drivers to install them without uninstalling the old drivers. You should find some sort of instructions on the ATI website.

If new drivers do not fix the problem you may have damaged the video card and it will need to be replaced.
