    The only thing I can think of to suggest is rolling back your ATI drivers. That and maybe finding some older ones to see how they work for you.

    Did you do a upgrade install or clean install when setting up XP? If you did teh upgrade, i would recomend doing a clean install. Upgrading one OS to another can sometimes be less effieient and compatible
