Default Video Overlay Problem FX5200 (green video)

I just purchased a XFX FX 5200 from futureshop on boxing day for a mere $69.99 CND i got it so i can connect it to my TV (I used to use an old school ATI Radieon 32-no tv out) long story made short

Installed it love it but discovered a HUGH problem with the card

really bad refresh rate when playing a video (overlay i believe)

when ever i am in windows media player/ or /RealOne when i fast forward or zoom or full screen the screen the video becomes choppy from (a "LINE" would appear due to refresh difference - upper left to bottom right diagonal line) then the bottom triangle would turn GREEN and then the top triangle.

I phoned up XFX many times they say blah blah install driver update bios blah update XP service pack blah directX

ALL done even before I called them

I need some help on how to fix this
tried 5303 5304
screwed around with refresh rates

BTW the problem occurs less if i stay in the default refresh rate 60Hz
currently I am in 1024x768x32@85Hz
