First of all hello everyone, I just registered here.

I got battlestations: Midway in Italian (I'm italian), but sometimes, during the game, some strage glitches appear.

I made a screenshot here:http://aycu40.webshots.com/image/11359/2005877346470655781_th.jpg (http://allyoucanupload.webshots.com/v/2005877346470655781)


Now, if someone could tell me how to fix this, because it is getting more and more annoying and this problem isn't restricted to just battlestations midway; I'm getting this strange lines in every game.

My PC:
- Athlon 3500XP
- 2gb RAM
- ATI X1900PRO <- I think that the problem should be caused by the GPU

I got the latest drivers for my video card and I installed the Direct X found in the Battlestations:Midway DVD.

Thanks in advance for any help.

You could try rolling back your graphics card drivers and see if it clears up. Your card could also be starting to go. Does this happen with any other game?

I already tried to roll back. No effect.
This happens in every game. At the moment, I'm playing these games and this problems happens in every of them:
- Supreme commander
- Silent Hunter 3
- Medieval 2
- World of Warcraft

maybe your card is going bad or you have a heating issue.

I cant see your screen shot, but IF you have had your video card for a while, AND the problems you are seeing is flickering, lines appearing that shouldnt be there, etc, then you probably have a heat issue.

First try cleaning out your video card. Sometimes, they get dust in the openings that air is blown throuh, clogging them, making the card get hot. You may have to get a tiny screwdriver, and a pair of tweezers.

If thats not the problem, and you arent overclocking, then its time to buy a new video card.
