    Default Weird llines on open programs

    When I have just a couple programs running, I get all these weird lines that cover the screen. Once I close one of the programs that are open, the lines go away. It's weird. What could be the cause of this? I have BT5 installed to my HDD.

    Maybe you could give us a bit more info to work with, like what programs you were running. Do you have your graphics drivers installed? Are you running any gpu intensive programs?

    Just WICD and a few consoles. I don't have my graphics drivers installed. How do I do that?

    Are you using laptop? On my laptop(Thinkpad X200 with 6GB ram) it had the same issue. If using the laptop with 2GB ram, no issue. On windows 7 also same.
    I think it's the graphics card compatibility issue with 4GB RAM.

    There are numerous threads that deal with specific models of gfx card and installation of drivers. Just do a search.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
