i keep getting pixelated image just on my skills the game i play is vindictus. and also freezing up sometimes. the pixelated just started last two days ago. the freezing up thing on everything i play. always play on window mode and lowest settings the game has to offer. also listen to music on YouTube.

my specs:
Microsoft Windows XP
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU
6300 @ 1.86GHz
2.00 GM of RAM
ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series

ohh its also a dell a computer

i dont know what am doing wrong and let me know if i need to upgrade anything. i think its the graphic card. also the icon on the ATI is all pixlated too, just that one tho.

also i can see videos am watching through other pictures am looking at

 
Solution
also just found some NVIDIA files and directory and registry NVIDIA was my last graphic card should i remove these as well

yes you should. sometime the old registry entry will conflict with the new gpu driver (especially if the gpu is not from the same vendor) which can lead to system instabilities

first you need to uninstall your current driver via control panel. you have to uninstall the driver and catalyst control center. then run driver sweeper to clean any left over by the driver. you can get driver sweeper from here:

after done with the sweeping re-install your driver. you can use the one that supplied together when you buy your card (driver disc) or download the latest driver form here (which is more recommended to be used):

ok got that part now
how to do this (uninstall your current driver via control panel)
also just found some NVIDIA files and directory and registry NVIDIA was my last graphic card should i remove these as well
 
i haven't use windows xp for a very long time :p. basically from the task bar you go to start> control panel> programs then select ATI driver and Catalyst control center to uninstall them (you might have to uninstall them one by one) but you might want to install driver sweeper before uninstalling your driver.

i think it is better if you have someone with computer knowledge to show you directly how it was done. it's easier to understand and remember.
