I have XPS 8300/i7 2600/12GB RAM and a Radeon 6870 video card. Monitor is
a Dell UltraSharp U2312HM 23" HD Monitor with LED
Not terribly impressed with my videos but that's another thread.
With the video card I have, should I be seeing residual window outlines and
definite lines in shading? This is a new system.
Here are links to two examples. Is there anything I can do about this?

I've added another screen display abnormality. It looks like rays of
sunshine Also, I've narrowed it down, at this point, to using the
Windows 7 show desktop/Peek @ Desktop option in the far right corner of the
taskbar.
Does anyone else have display issues when using this feature? But, this
doesn't explain the lines where there should be a gradual shading effect.

Don't you just hate it when are new stuff is worse than our old stuff?
Anyway the first thing I would do is to check to see if it is using the
native resolution. In your case this is 1920x1080.

sure you can blame it on 'new stuff', but you can also choose to learn
about the new stuff and benefit from it. aero glass (and more
importantly aero peek) is just about the only interesting feature of
windows 7. if you don't want to use or learn about it then you can turn
it off. but if you turn it off then you might as well still be using xp.

sample 2 suggests that the color depth on the video card is set rather
low, hence the choppy color transition rather than a smooth one. try a
higher color depth setting in display properties

sample 1 and 3 are features of the windows 7 visual features called aero
glass. this specific feature occurs when you hover the mouse pointer
over the show desktop button - the windows on the desktop become
transparent but an outline is left behind, and subtle wide diagonal
lines are painted across the screen to further indicate that the desktop
is in peek mode. if you actually clicked the show desktop button then
the open windows display on the desktop would be minimized.

Display is set to it's native resolution of 1920x1080

Display is set to True Color, 32-bit. Is this what I'm looking for?

Having video playback issues too. I don't know if it's the card or monitor.
I'll post examples later but at this point, I'm more impressed with my 6
year old
2005FPW UltraSharp than this 2312HM HD UltraSharp

>>but if you turn it off then you might as well still be using xp.<<

Where do I sign up?! I'd LOVE to still be using XP

Shake and Snap (see? I DO read the links & watch videos) Cute
One thing I noticed tho is that when I "peek" at my desktop, my Accuweather
gadget is gone. It's the only gadget I use.
Just put other gadgets on the desktop and "peeked" and those gadgets
remained on the dt. Guess it's an Accuweather issue.

So, the only difference between Win7 and XP is the Aero feature?

Is that so Christopher? I started using Windows 7 around July of 2009 on
three computers and I learned it in about two hours. And even after two
years of using Windows 7 my impression still hasn't changed. It is cute,
yes! Practical? Naw! XP still runs 100% of what I want to run. While
Windows 7 only runs 95% of what I want to run. To me, that isn't very
good. As if I use Windows 7 most of the time, I would have to fire up
another computer to run XP for the other 5%. To me that is crazy since I
usually only have one computer running at a time. Why not just stay with
XP all of the time?

Then Windows 7 eats more processor and GPU power than XP does too. That
means you have less power for more productive things like 3D games,
video editing, etc. If this isn't bad enough, Windows 7 heats up your
CPU and GPU more than XP does as well. Now you have to worry about
heating problems more and your hardware not lasting as long as it might
have.

I know it sounds bad enough already, but some Windows 7 tasks also takes
more mouse clicks to do some of the same things that XP does. Now which
brains came up with that idea? Now you went from bad to worst. So
forgive me Christopher if I am just not very excited about Windows 7.
They say beauty is only skin deep. And Windows 7 is indeed cute on the
outside (and when XP first came out we thought XP was the cute one). But
deep down Windows 7 is really pretty ugly (is "pretty ugly" an
oxymoron?).

i don't think you really need me to repeat what i said. you can re-read
it yourself for what it say and perhaps this time not read into it and
exagerate things. or just go ahead and answer your own question. seems
like you want to.

sounds like you have misunderstood my comment that if someone is going
to turn off aero in windows 7 they might as well use xp. that is not a
slight to xp.

Well those three computers had different CPU speeds back in 2009 running
Windows 7. They all had 2GB of RAM with Intel 915GM integrated graphics
which the hardware is said to support Aero, but the drivers didn't. So
the first year running Windows 7 I didn't have Aero ability.

A year later, I had lots of computers with Intel 945GM and Nvidia GPUs.
And they both can handle Aero without any problems. And to be frank,
before and after having the ability... it still doesn't seem like a big
deal to me. Sure it is cute and some might call sexy. Maybe it is just
my age catching up with me. But cute and sexy just doesn't do much for
me anymore. It's performance that gets me all excited nowadays. ;-)
