vertical lines on screen & icons disappearing

  waah 18:14 24 Nov 2003

Im running Windows XP Home, P4, 1024mem, GEForce FX5900 Ultra, Audigy2 sound.

During boot up the screen often has sets of vertical parallel lines in pairs, sometimes mouse pointer also has two vertical pink lines to its right - also some icons in taskbar and on screen (and in menus) disappear although are still usable.

Does anyone have an explanation and solution please.

What graphics drivers are you using?

Is it OK in Windows

You may have graphics shadowing in BIOS you do not need this. If it's only when you boot then it's related to BIOS before the Windows Driver takes over

PS new drivers will not have any effect on the prob
