Re: Fuzy pointer

HI NIXnerd, If your getting a crosshatched or disrupted box around the pointer then it sounds very much like the pointer accelerator is on it's way out. The pointer is displayed by a sub-unit of the GPU, you can think of this as a mini graphics chip built in to the GPU that is there for the sole purpose of displaying the pointer. Sounds like you know what you're doing re: configuring X so try turning off pointer acceleration and see if it makes a difference, sadly if the pointer accelerator is indeed on it's way out then the rest of the GPU will not be far behind so turning off acceleration should be thought of as a temporary solution. As ever, if you have any questions or need more in-depth help post back.

EVGA GeForce 6200 512 MB card + mouse pointer

sounds like yo had the same Problems that I had with my 5200 geforce The install did not go well. what was happening was the direct x was binding to the old mother board graphics system and not the new card . to make it rebind just change the refresh rate in the nvidia icon in your task bar . disable the display adapter from device manager for the motherboard graphics .put the card in the slot change the monitor cord boot up check you direct x by typing in run dxdiag and test directx to be sure it is running with your card you can also see that from the about nvidia you must have the driver for the card installed to do all this.. hope I helped install the driver first then disable download latest drivers here

Stripped screen after boot up from XP SP2 Home edition

are the stripes repeating in a pattern across the screen? if so you probrably have a video ram bus problem or a video ram problem, either way its probrably an issue with your graphics card, thats the worst case scenario. if your feeling lucky just give your monitor cable a wiggle and see if anything changes
