    I got my new pc back in January of this year and everything has been fine for the first couple months. Recently there has been this problem where the display of the monitor flips sides. It is difficult to describe so I attached a picture of what happens. It occurs when I am playing a game or watching a video, which I assume would be graphics card related. The card is and AMD Radeon 6950 with no overclocking, everything in the pc is running at its default settings. This has been a problem for 2 or 3 weeks and is really bothering me. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

    Yeah I have the same card (6950). For some reason the exact thing happens to me when I'm in a game. It comes at different times. It can happen 5 minutes into the game or I can play for a hour before it splits. It doesn't split when I play video for some reason. I hoping it has something to do with the driver and not a hardware problem. My rig is still fairly new. (w/in 4 months old)
