I recently had to re install windows XP, ever since I have I have had problems with both my processor and graphics card. My processor used to be 1.8ghz but has suddenly dropped to 1.1Ghz, and now most, but not all, games have irritating white lines all over them, and not only graphic instensive games, but simple flash games and the menus have the annoying white lines. Whats odd is they are not consistant. One day a game will render perfectly, the next day the exact same sequence will render full of white lines/blocks.
I can find no situation like this online, please does anyone have any advice on how to fix this? My xp service packs are up to date and I have installed the latest drivers for my graphics card tm.
Any help would be massivly appreciated!
Thanks

System specs
Xp pro sp3
Nvidia GeForce card (can't recally exactly which at the moment)
AMD Athelon rated 1.8Ghz, 1.1Ghz effective
512Mb ram.

Not the worlds most stunning set up I know but it would still be nice if it worked as it should!
