Aero Theme Black Dots RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I've just bought a new PC with pentium dual core 925, 2gb Ram and intel 82945g graphics, vista home premium, Phillips 19 inch widescreen 1400x900 resolution.


    When I enable the Aero theme it works fine but I get lots of little black dots on things like title bars and on the side bar. These dots move about whenever I hover the mouse over them .  When the bubbles screen saver kicks in, The bubbles are inside a visible rectangle which is filled with the same black dots/squiggle things (sorry hard to describe).

    I've downloaded and installed the latest intel driver but makes no difference.


    Any help greatly appreciated.

  • Does this occur at all resolutions? Have you tried a more standard resolution perhaps 1280x960.

  • Hi Tim,

    Yes even down to 800x600 and that makes the effect even worse (bigger dots).

    What I can't understand is the graphics properties show dedicated video memory as 0 mb

    total available graphics memory is 224 mb

    system video memory 32mb

    shared system memory 192mb
