Hello everyone. I recently purchased an ati radeon 9200 128 mb agp graphics card. The installation instruction were very vauge, so i searched the tehcguy forums for input. I originally had on oboard grpahics card. My motherboard is made by asustek and i do have an intel chipset. I unhooked the cpu and plugged in the new graphics card. I reconnected my monitor to the new graphic card , and installed the new drivers. Everything seems to be working fine. Windows Xp detected the new hardware etc. I did notice today , after a restart, that some of my icons seems to be of lower quality. Slightly distorted and pixilated. I was curious if there was some steps that i did not complete after installing the new graphics card. I read that with xp you dont necessarily have to uninstal the old drivers for the onboard vidoe card, as xp will archive them. Is this true ? Or is a conflict between graphics drivers causing some of my icons to look corrupted ? As well, my windows logon screen seems slightly corrupted.
