Default Help - VGA gone CRAZY

Check out the pic of my screen.

I have a ATI 9800 Pro 128mb VGA card
I don't know why it's doin this... What's strange though is that it's fine in dos but in Windows [while playin games] it freaks out. I just got some new cooling on there too - but that doesn't seem to be helping. I think it possibly be a virus too. does anyone know of some good virus software. I have Norton '04 but it craps out half way though the scan... PLEASE HELP! Ps I've already tried alot of different drivers - including Omega.

Cool "Screen of death!!!"

Oh SH**** ! How did you get this thing to print to the screen?

Heres an idea:

Since the card only works in DOS mode, try scanning for viruses thru the cd. Just start your computer thru DOS mode, and then type:

c:\>

then:

dir

press enter, type:

nswsetup.exe (or whatever .exe file is in the 'dir'rectory...)

Now that SHOULD scan for viruses... If it dosn't, i have some outher ideas...

What operating system are you running? Multiple remove and installs/Norton failing/It may be time to zero fill the HD and do a fresh install .

Before i use to have mcafee. I switched over to Panda AV Platinum 7. It's the best! It found 10 viruses when I got it! Its an amazing program, and I suggest you use it!

There are several programs Home Users should have for scanning for Virus', Trojan Horses, Adware etc.

To get rid of any latest virus use this scan:

McAfee Virus Scan

To get rid of Adware I suggest you download both of these:

Spybot: S&D

Lavasoft Adware 6.0

Spy Sweeper (registered version) is the best IMO!
