After hybernating with .avi file open, using a new nvidia card (I usually go ATI), all the image is conentrated in an ~4 inch thick horizontal band. I can hook it up to laptop with radeon 9000 card and get it working fine after fiddling with composit, horizontal (+,-), and vertical (+,-) a bit, but when I put it back on desktop it goes bad again. To start, the image widens and contracts until finally it collapses to the horizontal band. I have changed the desktop back to a radeon 7000 to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Go to your toolbars bottom R/H corner and look for the VGA settings icon ( nVidia or ATI). Right click on that...and look for rotation settings, from there just followed the settings... Have nice day!

I recommend that try to download the updated driver for the Video Card because I've encountered that kind of problem with my Sapphire ATI Radeon 6870, I've just downloaded the updated driver through the ATI website.

Do your PC support the above hardware requirements?
The most common input no support would be your graphic card is not up to the mark to play the PC games.
Is your graphics card drivers up to date to the latest?
Have you updated your DirectX to the latest version?
Pixel shader error is usually beacase your video device or video card is not able to run the game.
You can try going to your video device manufacture website and downloading and installing the latest video drivers.
If this doesnt work, your going to need to get a new better video card Nvidia and Ati are two good cards for gaming,please make sure your motherboard will be able to support what ever video device you decide to buy.
As described above it depends on the card. If you have two nVidia cards (TNT upward) and the nVidia detonator driver running you can just change the cards. I did that with my 16MB Elsa TNT and 32MB Asus Geforce2 mx a couple of time for testing after some major power supply problems. I had never problems with that.
If you try to replace a nVidia card with an Ati try as citronym suggested. It should work well.
But if you try to remove an Ati card better make a backup first. I did it once on my brothers computer and even use the original uninstall software that was on the driver CD. After installing his new TNT2 card he had massive problems with crashing games who worked before. I took a look and found quite a number of leftover files with ati in it in windows\system. I removed them all but there had to be other left. At last we ended up with a complete new installation. It was a new preset computer so it wasn't that worse but be careful with ATI cards! Maybe try it like Othe Hill suggested because I don't know the right way. Or check the ATI site to see if there is some help!
Your Motherboard has an onboard video chipset made by Nvidia. Nvidia and ATI have a history of not playing nice with each other.
I have 2 possible solutions for you.
1.) Remove the Radeon card and use the Nvidia onboard card (Essentially a Geforce 6100)
2.) Enter the bios (Usually done by hitting <Delete> or <F12> while the computer is booting up) Your Motherboards manual can tell you for certain. Then find the options for onboard video and disable it.
Then boot up the PC, When it say starting Windows press <F8> to bring up the windows boot menu. Select "Start in Safe mode" Once this loads up open the device manager, look under "Display adapters" find the entry for the Nvidia adapter, right click on it and select either "Uninstall" or "Disable this device"
Which you choose depends on your personal preference Whether you like Nvidia or ATI boards better.
If it makes your decision easier a Geforce 6100 is roughly equivalent to a Radeon 8500 in performance.
If the error message says "Cannot find any compatible Direct 3D devices" it means that you do not have a supported video on your system, and that you need to upgrade your video card.
