    Weird graphics problem


    When I play any 3d game on my pc like Bullet Run, The, um.. I cant explain. Heres a picture.

    Notice how the back of the mp7 has parts that are see through. Although this may seem minor, in other games like Batlefield Play4free, The sky is messed up, houses are messed up and the game looks like a graphical glitched up piece of garbage. Is there any way to fix this without having to pay?

    I see you're running Windows 8. Is it the RTM or the RP. Check to see that your graphics drivers are up-to-date, and that they support Windows 8.

    OK, first off, do you know what graphics card you have? Go to Win+X -> Device Manager and look under display adapters.

    Found this on AMD Dev. Central


    Step 1: Make sure you have the older graphics drivers (the ones that you are sure they work).Unpack them somewhere on your HDD for later use(don't install just unpack, the idea is to have access to the .inf files for your driver)

    Step 2: Open Device Manager (Control Panel) & locate your display adapter (you should see some Microsoft's stock drivers installed here)

    Step 3: Right click "properties" and go to "events" tab. Here you should see a list of the latest events (which driver installed & when). Search for the file that has the .inf extension ( in my case it was "atiilhag.inf").

    Step 4: Go to C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository (this is where Microsoft stores all the default drivers for windows) and search for the file you found earlier (using windows search).Once you found it open the folder that contains the file & copy it to another location (for backup purposes).This file contains information about which driver to install (open it and look around you should see information on the driver version and other stuff we don't need).

    Step 5: Go to the folder where you unpacked your older drivers( the ones that work).There you should see alot of files and folders.Here you must search for the location of the .inf files (mine were located in a folder named "Packages", but it may differ from software provider to provider). The goal is to locate the .inf file for your older driver. Once you found it open it, it should be almost the same as the one you found in the driver repository folder earlier( the driver version will differ of course) but probably it will have a different name. Rename this file to match the .inf file from windows and copy it to the folder where where you found Microsoft's .inf file (in the Driver Repository).

    Step 6: Go back to device manager and uninstall the current display driver (right click: uninstall). This should switch your screen resolution to a lower one(so you know the driver got uninstalled). After this right click any item in the device manager and click "scan for hardware changes". This will refresh your hardware list and a new item will apear (your graphics card, marked as unknown device. Right click it and select "update driver software" select "browse my computer" and browse to the folder where you unpacked your older graphic's driver (the folder where you found your.inf file). It should now install your older display driver without any problems.
    For step 1, try these drivers. Use the Windows 7 version.

    Sorry! I tried to think of ways to simplify them, but if I do that I end up screwing them up and making them even more confusing. If I'm not helping, you may want to wait for someone else to discover this thread.
