Default Weird Display problem.. Please assist

Greetings people.

Breifly put, i sold my PCI E graphics card to a distant friend of mine because hes into gaming and i no longer am, but when my monitor is connected to onboard video my picture is really fuzzy and distorts a lot, sort of like a rippling effect. I have installed the drivers for my onboard and the problem persists. I get the Rippling effect from the moment i cut the pc on.

The problem goes away when I switch the desktop resolution to 800x600, but the icons are extremely big and things dont fit the screen ( but the distortion, rippling/fuzziness ceases)i'm used to working at 1024x768 and this will not cut it for me..

Is there a solution to this problem?

My Onboard Video is ATI Radeon Xpress 200 series.
I am using Windows XP pro Sp2.
Motherboard:Intel D101GGC
Pentium 4 3.0 ghz hyperthreading
Direct X9.0


Thanks

Thanks, i will try the latest drivers when i get home. But do you think it will solve my problem since the fuzzyness/distortion/rippling commences right on boot?

Uninstalling the old drivers and installing the up to date ones did not work.

any more ideas?


seems like the resolution 800x600 gets rid of the problem, but everything becomes to bloated for the screen to capture.
