first time I got in graphic mode..and was ready to insert my user name and
password when, i noticed that my screen was moving(like the "a" for example
was not focused it kept moving from right to left constently) then i
uninstalled Redhats, and bootted in windows same deal, even when i boot my
pc were it says the name of my video card...its a little out of
focus..(never gets focused).
