    So today my friend and I traded gfx cards. I have him my 9600gt and he gave me his 9800gt. I plugged in the card and the thing installed perfectly, according to the desktop icons. Then I updated the drivers. I noticed these annoying lines on the screen, so I changed my refresh rate from 60 to 75. The lines were still there, but barely visible, also giving me the biggest OCD ever. I tried installing Nvidia Refresh Rate Fix to fix this problem, but it just simply says that it cannot find my graphics card. Same thing with ASUS Smart Doctor. Okay, so I uninstalled the card, then reinstalled it. Same problem. What the hell is going on? I ran some games and the performance was good, so it seems that the card must have installed. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Here's another problem that's not related: my DirectDraw Acceleration and AGP Texture Acceleration keeps becoming not available, but enables only after I keep updating my drivers EVERYTIME I start up the pc. Does anyone know how to fix this too? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

    I left out a bit of information for the last part: the DirectDraw Acceleration and AGP Texture Acceleration problem happened while I had my 9600gt too, but right before I switched.
