"Windows Vista Ultimate Full Edition (32 bit version)"
Maybe somebody out there can help me with a video problem with my PC. This has been an ongoing issue, and has wracked my brain for some time. I will try to explain in as much detail as possible. Thanks in advance for any help offered, or just for taking the time to read all of this.
Almost ALL of the time, there is a delay in my display. Imagine opening a window on one part of the screen, the dragging it across the screen. In trying to do this, the image will move in slow motion, and leave a "trailing" delay effect. Videos will play with a choppy delay, as will games. Mind that this does not happen all of the time (only about 90% of the time). I also get a notification that my "display driver has stopped working" almost every time I bring the computer out of screen hibernation mode. Another issue, being that the screen will sometimes (but not frequently) become littered with random pixels (sometimes to the point where I can't see what I'm looking at)(a reboot fixes it).
Windows Vista Ultimate Full Edition (32 bit version)
OEM AMD Phenom II x3 720 Black Edition Triple Core 2.8 GHz CPU
ASUS M3n72-D NVIDIA 750A SLI Motherboard
NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT Graphics Card
Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Sound Card
1. All video card & other system drivers are up to date
2. Motherboard drivers & BIOS up to date
3. Upgraded power supply to 1050 watt (but nothing changed)
4. Windows current with updates
5. Plenty of internal fans, so no overheating issue
6. Checked all connections, cables & card seeding
Could this be a compatibility issue with the motherboard & video card?
Could the video card be defective in some way?
If it is a video card issue, what are some recommended brands/models that are good for gaming, but won't break my bank account?
