Here is the pictures: picture 1, picture 2, picture 3.

Hey There,,
Maybe try running the Direct_X-08 distribution over win7. I had to do it to get
AOC running.

Windows 7 Home Basic 64bit

I had a similar problem a while back, when i had nVidia Ge Force 7900 GS. My problem was manifested as discolored or single color triangles and stretched or
missing textures in games, it looked like this for example :

The problem was that my card was overheating due to dust buildup on the cooler of the card, so i got it cleaned and checked and it didn't exhibit those problems any more.

So I think your mate's graphics card is either overheating or dieing, tell him to clean the dust off of the card's cooler, and test it some more to see if it is still making these kinds of artifacts.

I have the exact same problem that you have guys, and I trully beleive that is not My grafic Card overheating because she goes to 70C tops.

She doesn't do that in windows XP, only with Windows 7.

Any help??

This happens regularly on my Dell Latitude D630 running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 32-bit. This is a fresh install not an upgrade. The icons return to normal by simply passing the mouse over them but the desktop stays the same until I reboot. See screen shot attached.
