Have you installed the lastest drivers for your video card as well as DirectX9c?
Is your PC free off spyware/parasite?
I have noticed that when things leave the screen they peel from the top to the bottom instead of leaving in one go as they used to. Any ideas? Even half the start menu was missing when I clicked start - the missing parts (eg run) appeared when I moused over them however. All virus protection etc is up to date and correct and I have xp home sp2.
The start menu returned to normal after reboot. But I have tried to run chkdsk from run twice - once with /f and once with /r. It doesn't give the normal option to do a scan once the system restarts due to it not being able to lock the drive. The command window appears with a little text in it but it disappears too fast to read. When the system is rebooted no chkdsk took place on wither reboot. What has happened to it?
I'm mainly wondering about the screen behaviour for the moment.
