Did you uninstall all your old drivers before updating any new drivers on your system?

hi thx for your reply i have all the latest drivers installed. The full story is my old card was making this buzzzing noise and was lagging as well so i called up the insurance company they replaced the card so the noise has stoped but the lag is still there and i have tried many times installing the latest drivers after uninstalling the old drivers but nothing seems to slove the problem

hi the lag appears when a window is moved over another window it would leave a trail behind it. You can see the pic of it here http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/2544/50319818.jpg

Hmm, yha.. That shouldn't happen at all.... Very vtrippy though.

When did this start? It seems like somethings fighting for your gpu.

Would Vista AREO cause this? If its a recent issue, could you try a restore before, i'm thinking maybe An update tweaked a visual setting the 8500 can' keep up with. Like a direct x 10 thing.

For the record... theses are just wild thoughts.

i don't think its window aero doing it i have recentley reinsattled the windows due to get rid of that noise i have mentiond before and thats when all started but shoudn't the lag aways as the graphic card has been replaced. I have also tried updating my mobo drivers but that hasn't helped and i don't really know wats causing this. If i can't sort it out then the last option will be to call insurance company but then agian that why i pay them
