Okay I have ATI Rage P/M Mobility AGP 2x.
Its a old laptop so I followed these settings http://www.nexle.dk/win2000-32mb/ to improve performance.

Ever since than my display looks like this http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2666/4194004030_33b02ea8...

I tried changing some things back that has to do with the video card or display but to no avail. Whats going on!! youtube videos are grainy and all images and icons. I have also tried reinstalling drivers, didnt work.

Its set at 1024 by 768 32bit
Please help

Huh?
I don't see any troubles in your pic...
it's a windows 2000, right? So that's it... That's the appearance of win2000.
Could u be more specific?

What do u mean by normal?
U can't expect more from win2000, it's an ancient OS...

removed Monitor drivers and increased resolution to 1280 by 1024 fixed it
