Hiya,

Im hoping someone can help. I have recently built a new PC. Specs will follow.
It seems when I play games, Star Wars Battlefront or Raven Shield the display goes skew, walls and sprites become distorted.

will try and post a screenshot as its hard to explain.

AMD 939 3500+ MSI K8N Neo4
Gecube R X600XT PCI-e
1024MB Transcend SDRAM
200GB SATA seagate 7200.7 HD
160GB SATA seagate 7200.7 HD
Windows XP home SP2

I have tried trouble shooting, tried updating all drivers. so far no luck. I've had no other problems surfing the net, playing movies etc. everything else seems ok.

Drivers;
BIOS: Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG
DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)
Driver ati2dvag.dll
Driver Version: 6.14.0010.6497 (English)

standard install on everything, no overclocking.

ok, i've added some clues to teh screen shot. The red box should show a outside belcony with a downwards stairway. Instead theres a mess, hence the problem.screen shot (http://forums.overclockers.co.nz/showthread.php?s=&postid=217538#post217538)
The blue oval should be seemless sky with that needle tower in the middle.


Any ideas? :annoyed:

Cheers,

Vic.

sorry to tell you this, but i had the exact same problem with an old GF4 Ti card. i took it in and had it tested. it came back and was told me VESA RAM was fried.
