Exclamation shadows on icons and text.

My mothers computer appears to have shadows of every icon and text that appears on it. The shadow is to the right of the actual image. I'm assuming it's probably something to do with either the video driver being bad or the on-board video possibly could be going bad. Some input appreciated.

She left the house with there being no problem and was using a like $80 brand new video card that I had put in it for her. (parent's are snow birds) My brother while down in Florida said she didn't need it and took it out. (somebody ruined the card and now it doesn't seem to work... I tried putting it back in) When she got back home from Florida, the picture on the monitor was all screwy. I have no idea what happened during the 8 months that she was gone. I tried doing a video driver roll back, but it didn't help. Also tried going into device manager and searching for an update to the video driver, which apparently there isn't a newer driver.

Thank You.
