Please view the images attached
(the screen is magnified to the left part of the actual one)

this happened sometime ago after i :

-reformated my PC
-installed a new graphic card (512 ddr agp)
-ran a complete registry scan a fixes (registry mechanic)
-upgraded to XP sp3

it is not an LCD monitor
i cannot do a system restore cos i dont have a restore point created.

The games below are Age of Mythology + Ragnarok Online. They are some low requirement game. My usual screen resolution is 1024 x 768 and 32 bit... i didnt have any problem playing the games before and did not tamper with the game setups. It just HAPPENED!!

Did you install the driver for the new video card?
