    I searched the forums, but I didn't see anything that seemed to match the problem I'm having. For the last maybe six weeks, I have been having visual distortion problems on my computer whenever I do the following:

    • Use 3DS Max
    • Use Google Sketchup
    • Watch any video file from the hard drive
    • View slideshows on my computer
    Here are some examples of what I am seeing:

    My computer otherwise works normally, but while watching a video or trying to use a 3D program, this happens. It happens on both my CRT and LCD monitors. I have checked and double-checked the cords and I've had this video card for years, yet this problem just started happening.

    The only thing I can say might be the cause is the installation of 3DS Max, which I did in early June, yet uninstalling the software did not eliminate the problem.

    If you've seen anything like this and can offer any information or advice, I'd be very open to it. Thanks in advance.

    What kind of Video Card do you have?

    What OS do you have? (edit, I see you have vista lol)

    What are you overall PC specs?

    Sorry, I thought I'd posted that info before...guess I forgot.

    Anyway, straight from my Welcome Center...

    Windows Vista Home Premium
    AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3500+
    3 GB RAM
    Nvidia GeForce 7300 LE

    Please let me know if there are any other specs you might need (and the easiest way to go about getting them...)
