It would appear that my video card is about to go out. the problem is static and flickering on the screen (started this morning). I've tried a different monitor but that made no difference. I uninstalled and reinstalled the driver. Uninstalling the driver made the problem stop, but not long after the driver was reinstalled, the problem started again. Finally, I went to NVidia and downloaded the latest driver. Same problem. I no more than start writing again and this comes up. I just about feel like throwing the computer out the window!

If anyone feels they can afford it, I would appreciate any donations you can offer. I've found equivalent display adaptors on ebay for $40. I have Paypal. use my email adress (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you in advanced.
