Default Acer Aspire SA80 windows 7 video probs

Hi guys.

My parents got me to install windows 7 ultimate on their Acer Aspire SA80; I have everything working including sound, Ethernet ect but my parents have a Nvidia 7600GT AGP installed in the system and the video seems to be having problems even with the latest nvidia drivers.
What is happening is colored lines appear in games even in solitaire when the cards are being dealt.

I dont think the video card is to blame since I cannot find anybody with the same problem with the same video card; I how ever think it could be the motherboard; Acer has no windows 7 compatible drivers listed on their website or vista.

So should I swap out the motherboard? do you think this could be the problem?

thanks in advance.
