    Monitor specs

    I currently have an on-board video card: ATI Radeon HD 3200. VGA and DVI Outputs. I am open to installing a new video card if that will help. I don't play video games so I don't think I will need a "gamer" type video card unless it will help me get better color.

    Tool tip font gone awry (CS5)

    The tool tip dialog font on my tool bar and in the photoshop panels somehow got messed up. When I hover the cursor over a tool or an element in a panel, I see a blank yellow dialog box most of the time. Sometimes I might see a little bit of text but its all screwed up. This leads me to believe...
