Hi there.

I'm sorta back here cause I'm dying from these pixels. The situations gotten really bad recently and now in google for example when I scroll down the page. This is how bad it's become ->

it's seriously getting annoying now that its happening to text as well. I'm desparately trying to get rid of this problem now and posting it everywhere I can. All I can point it to is something to do with the graphics driver for my Geforce 4 Ti4200 which keeps failing install in Windows update.

See example -> http://cxfiles.orcon.net.nz/failed.gif

I've tried loading in safe mode and trying to install the driver but windows update doesn't work in safe mode >< Does anyone please have any suggestions? Does anyone think I should just get a new graphics card? I'm certain I couldn't have damaged it cause I don't overclock or anything but I'm thinking anythings a possibility now.

Thanks.

I wouldn't let windows update install drivers for any hardware under any circumstances.

Anyhow,remove the drivers and start over.

First via add/remove programs,then clean out what gets left behind with Driver Cleaner,there is a link in the Video faq *beta*.

Then install the drivers from Nvidia.

agree with metla, visit Nvidia download page:
