After seing your screen shot, I remember now I have seen the same
troubles  with Mathematica version 2 for Microsoft. Maybe you might try
to check if  all keys in your register are free from data coming from
version 2.

Anyway, a similar kind of troubles happens to me (version 3.0 and
Microsoft  NT4 SP3, with video card S3): the help browser window does
not refresh  correctly when this window has for some reasons been under
another one; and  I have to scroll it to refresh it. This does not
happen all the times.

Hope this helps,

Objet:	[mg10600] Diamond Video card problems?

Hello again!

I just wanted to ask for further suggestions about that problem I posted
a while back.  Since my description of the problem wasn't very clear,
I've posted a screen shot of the aftermath on the web.  If you go to
http://www.wam.umd.edu/~dwarf/computer.htm there are links to both the
screen shot and a sample notebook I can use to duplicate the problem,
along with what I do to reproduce it.

I called Wolfram tech support, but they couldn't reproduce it.  I can
reproduce it an any computer I've tried it on, and the common link is a
Diamond Multimedia video card.  Not necessarily the same card either.

Today I downloaded the newest drivers I could find with no success. I
have to say, if this means I have to go buy a new video card to use
Mathematica  I'll be *quite* unamused.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'm *dying* to hear them.

Thanks!
