I don't have this problem, but anyway, I'd suggest to check out if there's
been any drivers automatically downloaded from Windows Update for your video
card, or that you downloaded the beta driver from ATi.
In device manager, try to roll back your driver if it's possible.
While, as I mentioned, I don't have this problem, the ATi website drivers,
and the WU drivers (dated 19/12/2006) are causing some minor problems (like
IE7 flickering on live.com, etc.), so, for now, I'm better off with the
included out of the box ATi drivers.
Maybe, all I've said isn't applicable for your case.
