Weird display issue with ATI card
#1
Hello boys and girls, I need some help. I just recently(today) upgraded the drivers on my dad's PC for his WIndows 7 partitio. It is an ATI x1600 AGP. ATI only recently put out drivers that even had legacy support for this model, so he was eager to get things updated so he could game without switching back to XP.

The drivers seem to have installed fine, however there are some pretty weird ghosting effects going on, nicely illustrated by the attached screenshot.

I even did a clean install of the drivers by totally removing ATI drivers with Driver Cleaner (which hasn't failed me before!) to no avail.

Yeah I'm not seeing anything out of the ordinary either. Could you possibly be confusing some of 7's pretty GUI details enabled by the newer drivers?

Open up the screenshot yourself on separate PC and see if you see the same issue. As nataq01 noted, could just be your monitor.

Ok...that is very strange. What's even stranger is that everything was displaying perfectly until I updated the drivers. After that I got some seriously weird ghosting on static things like pictures and text. I'll have to try the monitor on my computer and see if it's the same.

Ugh.

Degauss if you can. Not sure what monitor you got. But on the flip side i recomend you ditch The yahoo tooldbar and Norton.
Two bad progs you dont want to be caught using. I also recomend using mozilla for your browser.
More tips later. My bed beckons me.

It's not my PC, it's my dad's. He gets comfortable with things and hates switching...ugh.

What do you mean by degauss? It's an LCD monitor...

Well, except for the many tool(spam)bars, that picture is just fine.
If you get ghosting however, it might be your LCD going bad :/

I sure hope not. It's a nice Samsung he's had for like...2 years at most? Also, like I said, it was displaying perfectly until I went to upgrade the graphics drivers, and immediately after installing them, the streaky problem hit. Very confusing...but I'm going to try the monitor on MY computer and see if the problem is still there.

If it's not the monitor, what steps should I take to tweak the graphics card to display things properly again?

if it would be graphics card malfunction, then we would be able to see visual errors on your screenshot, also you could check your cable that connects gfx card into monitor.

You could boot windows in safe mode, see if the display is fixed then.
F8 while the bootloader loads.
