Hi, I am using a Dell Inspiron 8200 with an ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 video card. Just a few days ago, while using the computer, out of nowhere the display has color distorions that flicker and change constantly. It can begin as blue rectangles and then change to other colors. Mouse and keyobard strokes seem to affect it also. I am running Windows XP Home Ed SP2. I tried reformatting the whole drive and reinstalling Windows but that didn't work. I also tried reinstalling drivers but that hasn't worked either. I hooked it up to another monitor and it also displays the distortions, leading me to believe it was either a driver problem or something with the video card. The problem occurs everywhere, including BIOS and Windows. I have no idea what to do next. Here is a screenshot of the problem:
All help appreciated.
