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.
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.
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.
Don't under estimate the power of stupid people in groups.

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?
