I'm running Windows XP SP2 with an NVidia Geforce2 MX 400 graphics card.
When I enter Windows, there is a grid of equally spaced purple dots on my screen. When I drag a Window across the screen, these dots somehow get "dragged" along with the window, making the window contain a flurry of purple lines. When I minimize and maximize the window again, the lines are gone. Also, when I scroll up and down, the dots get scrolled too resulting in vertical lines across my screen.
I tried printing the screen to mspaint, and the lines show up there too.
This problem has been around even before I reformatted my PC just awhile back. I've also tried downloading the latest drivers afrom the nvidia site after the reformat and installing them but to no avail. I know it is not a problem with the monitor or the cable because I have plugged this monitor into my laptop and it works fine. Also, I noticed that the dots are not there when the computer boots up and during the Windows loading screen. They only appear at the "welcome" screen.
Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
