Plugged a new gpu and installed the latest drivers but I am getting small boxes on my screen. They are "ghost images" of what was on my screen before, and they multiply if I scroll up of down. Also, the same thing happened when I put my old card in the same system. That card was a GeForce 7600. Here are some screen shots of what it looks like.

and a video (sorry about the quality)




My specs are:

CPU: AMD Athlon™ 64 Processor 4000+
Motherboard: ASUSTeK (A8N5X)
Mem: 1023mb DDR400
HDD: 300gb (WDC WD3200AAKS-75L9A0)
Video: NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT 1GB DDR3
Sound: Creative Audigy Audio Processor (WDM)
OS: Microsoft Windows XP SP3(2600)
Monitor: SyncMaster 940BW/199BW/941BW, SyncMaster Magic CX915BW(Digital)
ISP: Time Warner
Power Supply: 350W

I have tried to re-install the drivers and rolled them back as well. I was thinking my psu may be too weak for both cards, but it meets the minimum requirements for the gpu. Also, I may need more RAM, so that might be the problem. Any other thoughts on what it is or what I should do?

It looks like your mouse cursors are all messed up.

Do you use custom mouse cursors?

I do not use custom cursors. Also, they always appear in the center of my screen.

I see you are using a custom theme, try going back to the Windows XP Default theme, and see if the issue still occurs.
