Thanks for the input.  I think I'm going to try a clean slate this 
weekend(wipe out and reinstall).  If that fails I'm going to get a new 
video card.  Maybe it's having a breakdown of some sort.  How do 
hardware breakdowns manifest themselves?

Thanks for your research time,

Charlottesville, Virginia
