I just installed a new motherboard and used the onboard graphics until I
could install my nVidia card. There were times when the display went
wonky, showing blips and tears, and running slow. There were some
settings in my bios that I dinked with, which seemed to help. One was
setting the video ram to less than 4 megs, when I was running on just
one 4 gig chip. Makes sense... so you might check. Now that I have my
dedicated card in, no prob. I'm just not a laptop type person. I like to
get into the innards. :) Ric
