Display colors distorted - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I have elements 1.0 I think. When go to help-about elements it does not give a rev #. It has workd well for the last 18 months- I've done about 5000 pics using it. In order to make a new game work right, I just unstalled the latest drivers for my ATI Raedon 7200 and went up to direct X 9.0.

    Default Display colors distorted

    I have elements 1.0 I think. When go to help-about elements it does not give a rev #. It has workd well for the last 18 months- I've done about 5000 pics using it. In order to make a new game work right, I just unstalled the latest drivers for my ATI Raedon 7200 and went up to direct X 9.0.

    Now when I scan pictures 1) sometimes when I hit preview, the pictures are displayed with distorted colors (like negatives or some kind of thermal image)2) sometimes they scan alright and when I go back to elements, the pictures are messed up the same way on the elements work surface, or 3) they are on the work surface just fine, but become distored as I described above when I go to edit the picture (i.e. change brightness). Sometimes if I minimize elements and restore it, the picture will display correctly again. In all canses, the puuctures look grainy on this machine now. When I take the scanned picures to another machine, the as displayed with good clarity.

    I'm thinking I need to reinstall Elements or that I do not have enough memory. HELP!!

    I have an AMD1800+ with WIN98SE and 256MB DDR400. As I said before, I am using an AIT Raedon 7200 with the latest drivers set at 1152x864/256 colors and Direct X 9.0.

    Hey you lazy dog,
    Try going into display setttings > troubleshooting and turning off the video acceleration. See if that helps. If it clears up the problem, you have a video driver problem. It's all I can think of , at the moment. Let's hope ! <G>
