Default Issue with MSI GeForce FX 5700 (256meg)?

The type of monitor would be helful information.
The resolution used for your desktop would also be helpful infromation.

From your description, and without additional infromation, a guess would be
that you have a video cable problem or a video connection problem. How old
is your monitor, and is there evidence of strain on the connector cable
(sharp turn at the connector end or at the monitor end?)

Hi all,

Iím not overly computer-savvy, though Iím thinking my issue is a video
card problem.

What Iím experiencing is this: I get "fading" or "auras". Almost
like a burn in the monitor, but it isnít the monitor. It looks like
any graphic is echoíd, so to speak, to the right of the actual graphic
like a fading stamp trailing off to the right.

This is present everywhe desktop icons, video played from desktop,
images being viewed, and in games. (it does not happen prior to
Windows welcome screen; ie, in bootup there is no problem) I also
sometimes get "lag" in games when I shouldnít, and my screen will go
solid black, then flick back to normal.

Is this a video card problem? Perhaps faulty video RAM? Any help
would be much appreciated!

No unless you provide more information, as requested.
