SAPPHIRE 100265L Radeon HD 4830 512MB 256-bit
AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
Just updated to latest version trying to fix this problem, do not remember the previous version. AMD Vision Engine Control Center has less options after the update and I cannot even find out what the current version is.
Windows 7 64-bit Service Pack 1
Basically, I cleaned out my computer, took out the video card for what I believe to be the first time, cleaned out the fan and heat sink with a q-tip, blew it off, etc.
Afterwards, jaggies have shown up in EVERYTHING. Games, YouTube videos, even my my Windows mouse cursor is jaggier than it used to be.
Thinking I might have gotten dust somewhere it wasn't before, I did a more elaborate cleaning with a toothbrush, which got LOTS of dust off of it. And wiped the PIN connectors with a q-tip with rubbing alcohol. (Gave about an hour to dry, q-tip did have some greyed out spots.) However, this did not help anything.
Everything was fine beforehand.
I am wondering what it was I might have screwed up, and if I might be able to fix this.
