I'm not sure how to describe this problem, hence not being able to find solutions using google or the search function. Just 'checkered tile'-like appearing. I'm using Windows 7 7100RC, was playing game [Savage2, fullscreen] and it just SUDDENLY happened. All of a sudden. I've tried system restore and it didn't work. I'm pretty sure its a video card problem, I tried disabling and enabling, uninstall and reinstall, updated drivers, windows updated... [only thing left to do is reseat it, but only if someone knows for absolute it will fix it]

So anyways....please refer to the images and see if you know anything about it.. if you recognise it
Thanks.

the pics show the checkered tile thing which covers part of the screen, it changes location randomly when i click around or drag around.
Ingame, it covers the whole screen. it affects the taskbar too [probably because of transparency]
one of the pics show how text disappear when i hover mouse over it, and in some places makes text unreadable, or doesnt exist at all. somehow doesnt affect the internet.
Thanks, any help is appreciated.

Looks like a badly seated, damaged, or overheating card (or perhaps not enough power? though I don't think so) What are the temperatures your card is reaching when this occurs?
