For some strange reason I cannot access the screenshots. This may be a driver problem. Can you please email both screenshots to MichaelSammels@gmail.com with your computer information, and what type of graphics card you have so that I can try to solve your problem? Thanks.

Have you tried updating to the latest graphic card drivers? Which graphic card do you have? Is it a separate PCI-e/AGP graphics card or a built-in graphics solution?

Yeah - I got the pics. If you go to your manufacturers website and search for the drivers for your type of card. If you have trouble doing this, I can do it for you and email them back.

I had a further look, and would also like to add that this may be your monitor, and not your graphics card.

Scott,

This looks odd to me, like a monitor problem. :S I can never see a card doing that.

While that may be true Michael, waterpolo asked for his video driver's website. I am happy to oblige.

Then I do belive this may be the monitor. Does it get hot when your PC is on for a long time?

Right. Try getting some air into your room, to make it, well, colder. =) Then see if that helps.

Having had my computer to bits recentley i was amazed at the amount of crap and dust that had collected in the cooling fans and fins....... i would check that any fans you have inside are working and clean them out..... it could just be overheating.

Yeah - you can also buy a can of compressed air to clean them out.

Dust kills more computers than viruses, power surges, etc.

"Dust. Man's greatest enemy. How I shall miss the first server to make a bid for freedom. This is local papers view:

The dust pellet flew in from the side vent. Time stopped. The only sound was the intake of air from the fan, and the sickening crack as the pellet came into contact with its victim. Small pieces of chips and silicon exploded from its rear, as the pellet carved a hole in its casing. The Server lurched in a sharp movement, breaking its motherboard, as the pellet ejaculated from his keyboard jack at the back, causing another hole. It stood there for a second, the energy flowing from its wound. It shutdown its main settings, took one last breath, fell to its side, forward, and off the desk, his top collided with the ground and he was gone."

xD - sorry just for a laugh.
