Colors messed up

Post by FinnishSaint » Tue Jun 15, 2010 6:37 am

Hi
Got a new Asus AH3650 video card few months earlier. It had it's own drivers that were installed on startup. Now the drivers got wiped out when the GPU card slipped out of the PCI slot. I had to find(and that was so freaking hard :help: ) new drivers to the card. Finaly found Saphire's Catalyst 10.5 Hotfix that seemed to work just fine in everything. But when starting ET and joining the server, some colors were different. In some maps the ground is black and/or white, weapons glow always and few more abnormal things that I don't remember.
So if anyone could help me out cause it's quite hard to spot axis from black groung :duh:

I wonder if it is the card itself. If the Card connections touched slot leads it wasn't supposed to, and some circuit(s) got more voltage than expected...

I had the same issue. Use 10.4 drivers

Thanks to both, I'll go check the video now and try 10.4 tomorrow.
It must be due to drivers 'cause the problem appeared when I installed the 10.5 drivers.
Should I download Catalyst 10.4 from the Sapphire site, they have the Hotfixed versions?
And last but not least, can I keep the CCC from the 10.5 version?

Ps. Is there any option of getting sound from the card some other way than using USB Audio? I don't know is it possible to get sound via HDMI and how does it work(I use DVI-D cable to BenQ monitor). Onboard audio would be nice but many have said that you have to disable them from BIOS to make the card work correct?
How did you get sound, Blood?

This ain't that important and it's off-topic but...
any idea why my CCC integrated Video Converter produces MPEG-2 video files that have only audio, no picture at all? :D
It would be nice to have my movies in a format that fits in DVD's
