Ive been facing this for likea month or so...


After playing a movie or two or using windows movie maker or running limewire, my gfx get wierd, the shadow effects get ruined and so do the gradient. I'm scared taht my graphics card is conking off

I run Win XP Sp2, with an nvidia fx5600xt (XFX) ,

i tried like 4-5 nvidia drivers, goin from the 77.77 to the 78.03 , i tried nvidia default, Tweaks are us, guru3d.
All end up giving me the same problem.

ALso when this problem occours, if i keep my cursor over any file, the info box comes very slowly and again has a wierd shadow..

Please help me if possible.

Thanks.

Could it be my windows install?
