Hi Folks,

I have tried your suggestions with with reinstalling the DirectX and also the new Via drivers, but the problem still persists. Thanks for the suggestions anyway.

Try reinstalling Windows XP again. It could be a missing Windows file. You won't lose anything though so you might as well give it a try. I had a similar problem once and I think it was a Windows XP reinstallation which fixed it.

Hi Jediknight007

I tried what you suggested but the problems was still there. I have now changed my graphics card and the problem seams to have stopped the only conclusion which i can come to is that the Geforce card must the faulty.

Also thanks for all your help with suggestions on this matter.
