I've got some issues with my pc at work and would love to know how i can determine if my video card is working properly.
the screen resolution is at 1280x1024 and any images are fine.
When i watch video on media player the picture is a combination of red, green, orange and blue - as if codecs are missing.
going into the media player options and switching off the hardware rendering for video and dvd fixes the problem.
I assume from that then, that i've switched off the video card and the CPU
is processing the video rather than the video card.
I should add that because of my employers IT department being so poor, i'm running IE6, media player version 9 (i think) XP with SP2
(but no updates since May 06) and graphics drivers that are 2 years out of date - the card is ATI Radeon X700 with drivers dated may 05
I'm not an administrator for my office pc so i can't install any programs - is there anything i can do or check that will confirm if my video card is working properly?
