  1. Taking a screenshot of Windows won't do anything if your videocard is faulty.
  2. I think it's your monitor, since the screenshot appears fine to me. Try downloading the latest drivers for your X1900GT and see if it helps; if not... then yea, it's the monitor.
  3. hmm so you cant see the aqua green flickers in the button? its suposed to be solid gray, yeah altough teh problem is that i have tested teh screen on my servern and it wasnt the screen.

    ive read somwhere that ati cards and nforce mobos can be a hazzle, anyone care to elaborate on this?
  4. No there shouldn't really be a problem with ATI-nVidia compatibility. Try updating the drivers, otherwise I guess you just have a bad card.

    PS: make sure that your gamma is set correctly.
  5. i concur, the picture up above looks just how it normally should, silver colored xp taskbar, properly colored icons, etc
  6. Have you used any monitor calibration software? My dad did that and all his grey stuff went green. Never use that junky stuff.
  7. You probably have a bad card. That exact thing happened to me with my 9600xt, but luckily it was still under warranty, so they sent me a new one.
  8. could also be a "jiggle the cable" problem. move the connector a bit and see if there is any difference.
