The graph panel gets garbled when I move it to my secondary display in Layout (I also get similar distortion in modeler on any display window that extends onto the secondary display). Other panels (numeric, surface etc.) seem to display ok.

I'm using an ATI9600 and an Nvidia GeForce MX 4000.

I know the first response, judging by alot of posts, would be "ditch the ATI". The problem is, the corruption occurs on whichever monitor is not selected as the primary monitor in display properties panel in windows. This would suggest that it's not a specific card-related issue. Maybe I need to tweak some settings? I have all updated drivers and patched for the cards and LW. I've tried messing with the acceleration, color depth, resolution etc. Nothing that you would normally think to check seems to have an effect.

Maybe it is still the ATI..? I just don't want to trash a $200 vid card if it's not necessary..

I appreciate any insight.
