Did anything change on your computer? Did you allow XP to update itself automatically and if so, what did it update?

Is anything else on this computer not working right, come graphics?
Did you try to reinstall your videocard drivers, your DirectX version?

All-In-Wonder 128 AGP
BOINC 4.72

Interesting. Just tried Show Graphics on this old host that was always able to show graphic.
No graphics this time. Just white display and sixtack 4.67 not responding.
Three finger salute to end task, BOINC complains it must restart computation of LHC wu, but mercifully snags the last checkpoint and continues on.
I don’t view graphics often but am reasonably sure no software install/uninstall/updates during the time i last viewed (1-2 months ago?) other than client and LHC app update.

Maybe this is a problem appeared in sixtrack 4.67
I recall a similar situation with Pirates@Home when upgrading app to fix the problem with certain ATI Video Boards. I think that fix was to remove debug tags that were left behind. Maybe something similar going on here.
Anybody else having problems?
Could this be related?
