hi,

i have a toshiba Tecra M2 notebook with XP Pro and a NVidia GeForce FX
Go5200 32M/64M graphics card. The complete unit came preloaded from Toshiba.

When i start the machine, the wallpaper loads up crisp and clear and then
after XP has loaded up.... and before the startup programs (Microsoft
anti-spyware and ALRoboform) starts loading the screen goes black for about
6-8 secs and gthen the wallpaer comes on.....only to have the wallpaer with
jagged lines and not crsip as it was before the black screen.

Any ideas as to why this shouild be?

Thanks for your help.

Ravi

    Have you been to the nVidia site and grabbed the latest driver pack for it?
    Have you disabled the driver helper that loads? Beyond that - I'd check to
    see if a different wallpaper looks okay or if there's some changes being set
    to your resolution after you've logged into your account. For instance you
    can check another account and see if the results are the same. If they're
    not that gives a place to start debugging something like this.
