refresh rate problem?

I have a minor problem with my monitor. If I have a small window (ie; not full window size) on my screen and drag it around, some of the colours are left behind. Theses are only very small dots and usually come from the edges of the small window that I am dragging.
I have tried a faster refresh rate, I have it maxed out to 100Hz now, but it still happens.
I have the latest video drivers installed, as far as I know. It is version 6.13.10.2311
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.


ASUS AMD A7A266-E
AMD Athlon XP1600+
512 SDRAM
Nividia GE-Force2 64MB MX400
Creative SB Live!5.1 (WDM)

I downloaded the latest drivers from the link you supplied but I am still getting the same problems. It couldn't be a monitor problem perhaps?

even if it's not overclocked, make sure the fan on the video card is still spinning. while you're at it, take out the video card and give it a good cleaning. this means unscrewing the fan from the heatsink and getting the dust that always gathers in there. a heatsink covered in dust is useless.

lemme know if this helped... or if i should stfu and stop giving obvious suggestions. }:>

The card is clean and free of dust and the fan still spinning. I still get the same problem though.
Maybe I will buy a new video card, I would like a better one anyway, one with DVI.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
