also, what kind of vid card and what kind of chipset on the MBD? Via and NVidia have some issues. Also, try going into safe mode (not sure if you have) and set the adapter to standard pci graphics adapter and then get the most recent drivers. if need be delete the associated drivers (inf, vxd) and search for it in the registry. Unless you know EXACTLY what to look for, I would just suggest doing the beginning of this and forgo the regedit and the driver deletion or that'll cause a serious headache. However, if you DO have a via chipset (for AMD) and NVidia then do a search for "VIA NVIDIA"... there is a compatability problem there.. should hopefully have a patch.
If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
