I have just re-imaged a computer and after that was done there was a problem with the video.   The computer is running dual monitors before it was re-imaged.   When a window is moved from one screen to the other screen it is distorted.  I have installed the correct video driver, it is a ATI fire GL3400.  This driver has also been removed and reinstalled later.

If you re-imaged the computer, then the same video drivers should have been installed (as you know). You might want to try a previous version of the ATI driver to see what happens. That will at least eliminate the driver being the issue.

Where would I find a previous version of the video driver?

I was luck enough to find a disk that has a FireGL driver on it but after the install the result was the same.

Is the entire Windows desktop distorted...or only the contents of the Window being moved from monitor to monitor? If it is only the Window being moved and that window looks fine once it is in place on the other monitor, try unchecking  "Show Windows Contents While Dragging".
- Right click on desktop
- Properties

Did that make any difference?

I am curious to ask.  I have the same issue with one of my clients.  This started to happen as soon as I updated Quickbooks to R7.  "contents of window being moved is distorting when moving from monitor to monitor".  Do you happen to be running Quickbooks?  If so we have a common denominator.

I managed to fix this problem by checking the device manager I was using vnc to remote into the computer.  When I check the display adapters there was something called VNC hook in I removed that and it was fixed!
