Confused

Hey all, never seen anything like this before. I just installed Windows XP on my desktop and have only been using the computer for about a week and then when I launched TF2 my entire screen went haywire. I'll show a picture of how it looked when I tryed to install SQL Server 2008,

I will to you if you can figure out what the hell is going on. I have a GF 5700LE gfx card, haven't seen anything like this though.

Any thoughts?

I moved this thread to the XP forum as this is not malware related.

It may be moved again later on depending on your problem.

Hello Rahzizzle

When you installed XP did you get all the drivers for the system from the manufacturers` sites?

umm, I don't think so? Could that be the problem? I have never seen anything like this before. Should I reinstall the drivers or just reformat and start from new with drivers from the manufacturer?

Yo, that definitely worked. I installed an older version of the driver from the NVIDIA site and everything is dandy.

Danke!
