Have some disturbing issues on my rig. Artifacts ocuring from time to time, and whenever it feels like to. In windows for exampel. Just moments ago, I was about to enter a www-page, then it frooze up for a couple of seconds, the the artifacts came along. Messed up the picture in the shape of little squares, and when I tried to move a windows i just got worse.
Also, my monitor, a samsung 244T is having problems. It flickers from visible screen, to black, back to visible, and everytime displaying the "digital" text in the corner telling me it'srunning dvi, which it is. Just feels like it would be a glitch somewhere, like the cable is not in place...but it is.

psu 650W
winXP sp2
amd dual core 3800+
2 GB ram
3 hdd's
asus 7800 gt w. 81.95 forceware
msi motherboard k8n NEO4-F
1 dvd-burner, nec
3 fans

Everything is running at factory settings.

Please advice.

Have you tryed the 81.98 drivers, I would try taking the 7800 out of the pci-e slot and reseating it. If that still doesnt do it slightly wiggle the cable in the back of the monitor to see if it acts up when you do that. Plus whats the temp of the 7800? & case temp?
