  1. My start menu and video games have flashing blocky squares and corrupted text. Help?


    My video games all worked fine until today. From the menu screen to the actual gameplay, the screen is constantly filled with a lot of small squares/rectangles that flash constantly and models in the game deform and flash too. What's also weird I noticed is that even on the start menu, there is some spaces where you can see the flashing rectangles and the text is corrupted with some letters not appearing and stuff like that. It all worked fine until today and I don't know why?


    My computer specs:

    Intel® Core™ i3-6100U 2.3 GHz, 3 MB L3 Cache

    NVIDIA® GeForce® 920M with 2 GB Dedicated VRAM

    4 GB DDR3 L Memory

    1000 GB HDD


    P.S. All other apps work fine as before, just the videi games and the start menu is corrupted.

    :)

  2. Freelancer Menu text corruption

    Ok I'm on Windows 7, using a GMA 950. The game runs smoothly at full graphics at 640x480 resolution in a window. The only problem I'm having is that the menus are corrupted as in the text is all bouncing around and distorted. Also affects certain fonts when in game as well, ie text on space stations and other ships. I have googled around for various solutions and still haven't found anything that has worked. Can anyone help me sort this please?

  3. Games main screen blocky instead of text

    I have this game, ARMA, and the main screen is all blocky instead of text.. like it doesn't render properly. I have an ATI 5750 1 gig ddr5 video card on win 7 64 bit. Never saw anything like this problem before.

    Ideas? Thanks.

    Freelancer Menu text corruption

    Ok I tried the mod and it was still showing corruption in the menus, I tried playing on this lappy's full resolution 1280 x 800 and the same corruption, also tried an updated config file which added support for my IGP and it still displays corruption. If the 945 was originally unsupported would an older driver actually help?
