Radeon 64MB DDR VIVO

Help!

I seem to be getting "flashing" areas of the screen when attempting to play games. Some areas are drawn correctly, while others seem blurred and fuzzy. Objects like trees etc. seem to flash when turning in-game (Medal of Honour etc.). Also, there appears to be a diagonal line across the screen, (one half fuzzy, other perfect)
I have a realatively low spec PC:
PII 350Mhz
Radeon 64MB DDR VIVO
512MB RAM
Soundblaster LIVE!

I thought it could be the game requiring more resources, but it happens on low detail games too.

If I need a new graphics card my parents are gonna have a fit!
PLEASE HELP ME

What driver revision and OS are you using? Try updating to the official .6043 driver release if you haven't already. Seek 'em out at http://www.ati.com

Hrm. That's the same card/driver/OS that I'm using, and so far it's working fine for me. Did you clean out the old drivers you had before installing the 6043s? If I remember correctly, the flickering issue was an old driver problem with meshes or some **** like that. If you think previous driver leftovers might be the problem, try searching the http://www.rage3d.com forums for a "driver uninstallation guide" or something to that effect. Best o' luck with it.

Uncheck vertical sync?
Your bargaining posture is highly dubious.

Save yourself some time, keep it as a flakey second computer and splash out a few hundred on an entry level PC, it'll still rock compared to your 350!

Alternatively (and prob more usefully) ask around for someone with a gfx card with comparable perf and do a swap (a new GF2mx200 is only 40 notes).

Finally, see if you can plug it in someone else's PC as it could be a fault with your monitor or gfx card!

Hope this helps :wink: .

If all else fails, reformat. It's a little bit of a hassle, but hey, it's free, and a miracle cure for all (well, most) ailments!
