Question about Computers & Internet
I did as you suggested and updated the graphics card driver. This did not help. I also tried lower resolution. The problem is that there are big splotches and lines of purple/red pixels (even when i lower the resolution), and these areas of pixilation change according to whatever appears on the screen, so for example, if there is a photo of mountains, there will be pixilation on parts of the mountains, and if i am viewing some graphics, there will be pixilation along the graphics. It's not just a couple of bad pixels. It began this evening a little after downloading a photo from a disc that my sister had send me, so i assumed it's a virus, but a complete virus scan didn't turn up anything. Any other suggestions will be most welcome. Many thanks.
Hi Shaidan ... try going into the system settings and advanced then visual effects under performance ... put it on custom then disable (remove checks) beside everything ... also many graphic cards have fans on the graphic processor these days ... you can take a look at that and make sure it is clean and performing ok ...

you need to be installing a graphics driver for your onboard graphics or your graphics card, the monitor driver won't change the resolution, when you installed XP there wouldn't have been a graphics driver installed, only a VGA driver to enable a 800 x 600 resolution.
Find out your card manufacturer or your onboard graphics or use the cd that came with the motherboard or card.
