Video card problem

Hi!

A few months ago I had a virus-attack. It was stopped quickly. But after that I have experienced some problems with my graphic.

Most of my 3D games had "cutted" or "broken" lines. (se the attachment) Then I decided to format my HD and reinstall everything. I did that. But the problem was still there. At this time I had a ATI 9600XT with 256 mb ram.

Then in June, I brought a new video card (N6600GT). And that helped a little bit. But today everything was as bad as before the new video card.

I have a P4 2,8 Ghz. 1024 DDR-ram and the N6600GT with 128mb ram.

I have anti-alising on (the highest setting) and everyting is as high as it can be. The Vertical sync is OFF. I'm running 1024x768 on a 4 year old 17" CRT-monitor

What do you think it can be?

Maybe it's something in the hardware or maybe it's in the software.

EDIT: I'm not using the lastest Nvidia drivers. If I do, I'll get a black screen in some of my games. I'm using the lastest driver from the Video card manufacturer.

do you experience the same visual diffeciencis during normal window use?

if not then it's your video card settings? turn the aa to none and see if there is any improvements or turn them down to low and check for diffeciencies if none set a setting to a higher lvl and check again.

use up to date video drivers, use up to date directx drivers, use up to date sound drivers, use up to date bios drivers

I think I have tried everything I can remember if there are some problems with your VC. and also alot of advises from one of my friends who are quite good at hardware. But nothing has solved the problem.

a 400w NorthQ

It worked well when I had my ATI9600XT. But then I got the virus and after that (still with the 9600XT) it was bad.
