    It's been like this for a few weeks. Luckily Winamp and VLC don't seem to be affected so I can get away with using those for most things. It's just a pain because it affects Endorphin and other animation thingamabobdoofas as well as lots of games. I've noticed that things that use directx seem to be okay but opengl things seem to be a bit buggered. It started when I was on a bit of a demo downloading spree (I'm really into the independant game scene) and I had just installed a couple and I think one of them buggered it up. I'm not too sure though.

    I've tried digging around on the net for solutions but I've had no luck. I also tried installing newer drivers for my graphics card but still no luck. So yeah. I'm a little scuppered.

    I'm on some Advent Laptop or other
    Here's a bunch of info

    Operating System: Windows Vista (TM) Home Premium* , (6.0.6000)

    Graphics Memory in Use: 133 MB
    Processor: x86 family 6 Model 15 Stepping 13
    Processor Speed: 1496 MHZ (Duo Core)
    Vendor ID: 8086
    Device ID: 2A02
    Device Revision: 03

    * Accelerator Information *

    Accelerator in Use: Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family
    Video BIOS: 1471

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Cheers :)
