I use Windows XP home and Office XP. When using Word, after a time the monitor picture scrambles in vertical stripes. I have replaced the monitor and the problem still occurs. The monitor/display info is RADEON 7500 SERIES Display adapter and CTX 16.3 monitor(16.3"vis). Any ideas?
You might want to check out if you still get the problem with a different graphics card, if you have access to another one; or try your card in a different PC. I experienced this stripes problem with my old PC and it turned out to be the graphics card overheating because the fan stopped working. I had a similar problem six months ago with a brand new MESH PC and they eventually replaced both the graphics card and the PSU.
More than likely just a duff card, and nothing to do with MS Word. When my graphics card went the thing that seemed to set it off was scrolling through long Word docs using the mouse wheel. You don't say what else you run on your PC, but if its only MS Office you don't need a fancy / expensive graphics card.
