Thanks, I'll give it a try. I couldn't find any definitive information, so I figured it was safer to go way back.

EDIT: Tried 258.96 and the problem came back. Retreated to 197.45 and it works fine. Maybe if I get a quiet afternoon sometime, I'll do a binary search and try to figure out the exact point where it breaks. What weirds me out is that I've definitely run drivers newer than 197.45 at one time and it worked fine. I can't really understand why newer drivers would be a problem all of a sudden, unless maybe I picked up a Windows update that screwed me over somehow.
