    i've had an ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series video card for a while, and i decided to update my drivers today, install seemed fine, it brought up Catalyst Control Center, but now when i log on to my game(World of Warcraft) the letters in chat are all messed up with random symbols. When i scroll through the chat it goes back and forth between these symbols, and regular letters. i have a Vista, and i attached a file showing the problem. so far i've only disabled Anti-Aliasing on Catalyst Control Center, everything else is default

    Try going into device manager (rt click computer then properties, then hardware or device manager depending on your OS), rt click your display adapter, then properties, click on drivers tab and select 'roll back driver'.
    If this fixes your problem you will know it was the driver update that screwed it up, otherwise it may be your card that has become faulty.
