    Hello, I'm back.

    My dad has been busy but recently he's not been very well and we haven't had a chance to try what was suggested in my last post.

    We've already tested the memory and I think the problem could be with my graphics card. I think my dad's said it is integrated onto the motherboard and it does not have it's own memory and therefore uses my PC's.

    I was just wondering whether there is a way to check it for problems? I've got the driver up to date and my graphics card (probably already mentioned in one of my previous posts) is an ATI Radeon HD 4200.

    Another thing we are going to try to solve my problem is my brother has recently upgraded the graphics card in his computer and he's offered me his old one that we can try. This one I think has it's own individual memory and might be better.

    Many thanks,

    Check it by putting it in a known good computer.
