Default Distortion

When I move a window Fast or playing a game on an emulator the image distorts to what I call a Book effect

the image distorts to where it looks like a book.

I tried fiddling with my settings and going to 16 bit color. It eased it a little bit but it's still a problem.

My Graphics card is a g force fx 5500 and my OS is XP pro.

This isn't a problem that effects the performence of my system it's just annoying to be playing a game in MAME and the image distorts when a character moves a cirtan way (it happens in many games and when I move windows fast)

what do you think the problem is?

Sounds like a video card issue, possibly going bad- or overheating. If you had another video card to test with, it would tell if it was simply the video card, or something else, such as the AGP port itself.

Going bad on a new PC?
