Mask tool does not refresh - leaves masking lines

Using PS 5.5 on a PC, I have experienced the mask tool not refreshing its own masking path. It leaves traces of where the tool has been.  I have 96MB of RAM, and have tried reinstalling the program.  Everything still works properly, it's just messy looking.

Thank you for your suggestions.

looks like a bug in the display driver.

contact your display card manufacturer and ask for a driver update (or better take a look at the driver webpage on the net...) .. this should do the job...

I have tried troubleshooting your suggestion already.  I do not have a high end graphics card, it is just on onboard video card.  I do have the latest drivers currently installed for it.  Any other suggestions, besides upgrading video cards?

Thanks

yep...

somewhere in the control panel there is a slider where you can set the hardware acceleration.

in win98 it's at system properties -> System -> performance -> Graphics. I don't know where you find this on a nt system...

You can try to disable some of the cards features. maybe this helps.

Thanks again for the suggestion.  I have tried that already too, and it did not make any difference.  Thanks!!! You will get the points if a solution is not found outside of replacing the video card.

ok, thanks.. I suggest, that you first borrow a vga card from a friend and take a look if the problem dissapears before buying... it could also be a bug in the program..
