what video card did you get? What did you have before? Are you willing to uninstall and reinstall the game?

Hi there,

So you previously had an Nvidia graphics card, you uninstalled it and installed an ATI card. How exactly did you do this? i.e. when did you remove old card, when did you uninstall old software, when did you install new card, when did you install new software? Please give the exact order.

Doing some research on the 2600 Pro AGP version, it seems like there's quite a few problems people are having with this card.

Have a look at some of these results, and follow through some of them to see if they help.

Cheers

Troy

Okay, try this:

Uninstall the original card (all drivers should then be removed with it) by right-clicking My Computer, select Manage, select Disk Management.

Open the [+] next to Display Adapters. Your graphics card should be listed here. Right-click it and select uninstall, then reboot.

Install the drivers again after a reboot.

Let me know if that changes anything.
