    Run ATI Tool and see if it video card or not. When running this you will see
    if it is or not.

    My Dell 4400 just went bye bye so I moved all my peripherals to a Soyo K7ADA
    mobo running an AMD Athalon 1700+.

    Several times a day, the screen will go black and about half the time, the ATI
    Smartgart utility will recover so it's a GPU Lockup issue (right?).

    Also, the fonts on the Start menu and several other places are corrupted.

    Is this a known issue? Any cure?
