    Ok heres the most updated information. Its a fresh format of Windows XP Home and I have tried to uninstall and reinstall the drivers I have all the chipset drivers installed for the board and it still does this. I run virus scanners and they find nothing. You think maybe the MBR could be infected and I need to make a new one? But if I do this will the information on my hard drive still be retained? If not its no big deal but I would rather try to keep all my stuff that I have on my computer.

    Asus P4R800-VM
    ATi Radeon 8500/ ATi IGP 9100 (onboard)
    384MB DDR RAM
    80GB Seagate HDD
    40GB Maxtor HDD
    P4 2.8Ghz w/ HT

    Getting the errors on both the onboard and the add-in card, and only in games, points to a software problem rather than a hardware problem. Have you run windows update and installed the latest version of DirectX?

    Also, sometimes problems like this have simple solutions, check the game's manufacturer for any updates, defrag the hard drive,make sure your motherboard chipset drivers are installed, make sure the hard drives are set for DMA.

    If you can give us any more information on what your seeing; IE: blurring, stuttering, jagged lines, fuzziness, tearing, etc, it would be very useful in determining the problem.

    At this point, the MBR isn't a suspect in the problem. Are you asking this due to having hard drive problems, or virus problems lately?
