  1. It seems like most of you think I need a new graphics card, so I'll pick up a decent one online (I'm not a gamer).

    Marty - I can't set my refresh rate to anything higher than 75hertz. Also, my resolution was 600x800 since I bought the computer, which includes the time when I noticed the poor display.

    Thanks for all the help,


  2. sorry for not being more descriptive.. i was sorta in a rush.

    anyway, here are the answers:

    NVIDA Geforece2 MX

    I tried mulitple resolutions: normally i keep it at 600 x 800, and i tried it at 1024 x 1280 because thats what the monitor instructions said

    Monitor refresh rate is 75hertz

    I have Windows XP on a Dell Dimension 8100

    As for the linux, i gave it a try with Knoppix, and the display was the same...



  3. Recently my computer's display became fuzzy with weird colors and dark bars across the screen... immediately i thought the monitor was dead, so i went out and purchased a new monitor. I received the monitor today, hooked it up, and found the same display problems as my old monitor...

    i was wondering if this could be a graphics card problem, or any other type of problem? Any information or help diagnosing would be greatly appreciated!
