Video fades in layers

By aplustoz ·
WinNT4 Workstation, SP4 (tried 5&6a), Asus440BX, Celeron433, 64MbPC-100, AGP video, Office97SR1 (triedSR2) & Sidekick95.

Once every several weeks, one workstation fades out toolbars, then starts to get this freakish blur going across it. I was always told that it was in Microsoft Word, but witnessed it the other day in other programs also.

It tends to lose toolbars in stages.

Antivirus definitions are updated religiously, changed memory, processor, video card, flashed BIOS, re-installed OS (including low level format of hard drive)...kicked at, prayed over it and the thing still won't work.

What's going on here?

I'll try to give more details if you need them.

It is possibly the monitor, but much more likely it is the Driver. The driver may be corrupted, not the latest version or not the proper driver for you OS.
Try getting the latest driver for your OS....

NT and AGP don't play nice to each other, whatever MS would say that since SP4 they do. Install the drivers after the SP6, and then reinstall SP6 again, and again after all your programs have been installed. Is it a I740 AGP? Had problems with thosecards. Try a PCI card.
