    i would guess you have a fucked up video setting? What did you change before this happened or did it just randomly happen(ie you didn't install anything, youdon't have a virus, you didn't change to 32bit color, etc)

    i'd say video card, but then you've changed it, so maybe video part. hell you could have 2 bad video cards.

    is AGP Fast write on? I know when i changed my video cards, i had to disable it cause i was getting weird problems.

    What about your RAM?
    Does it do this in safe mode?
    What if you change the resolution?
