ghost box on screen, video driver setting??

198 Views, 5 Replies
12-10-2002 06:29 AM
I have a "ghost box" that stays on screen after opening a tool like measure
which has a drop down. If I pick any option from the drop down, then I get
a "ghost box". It will go away as soon as I pan or zoom, but it is annoying.
Is it my graphics card setting? I'm not sure how it should be set up for the
best performance with IV6.
Any help or suggestions would be great.
Thanks, Josh

The graphics driver has not been certified.
The graphics driver ID is NVIDIA Corporation\Quadro4 750 XGL/AGP/SSE\1.4.0
Graphics driver file nv4_disp.dll is version 6.13.10.4109
Using Full optimization (this is the recommended setting)
SwapType = 2
Workarounds = 0x10080000
Workarounds2 = 0x00000040
The display is using 32-bit color

HW Library Version = Win2K - $Revision: #3 $
HW Library Date = $DateTime: 2002/11/11 13:09:54 $

Options = 0
Warning Options = 8


Settings for optimized and conservative:
SwapType: 2, 3
Workarounds: 0x10080000, 0x10080000
Workarounds2: 0x00000040, 0x00000040
Text Options: 0x00000000, 0x00000000
OpenGL Version: 14, 14
Recommended Optimization Level: 2
Texture Font Precision: 32
Stroke Font Precision: 0.001000
Driver Rating: 0

Using OpenGL 1.1
swap behavior: swapCopy(1 or 2)
OpenGL errors: None.

I occasionally get a ghost box around my cursor in 5.3 and 6 and my video
driver doesn't seem to make a difference.

try

RMB on desktop / properties (don't recall which tab) but look for effects.
Uncheck this box. Sometimes the fade effect can hang up and produce what
you are seeing...

You should have no problems with that card...

Try this in Win2K and XP Pro - Turn off pointer Shadow (Control Panel - Mouse),
Turn off Use Transition Effects (Control Panel-Display) These settings will
affect all systems regardless of card & driver.

Thanks guys. I've been putting up with this too because I had assumed it
would take some serious voodoo to fix such a graphics problem. That's why I
need to read every post in this NG.
