Hey Guru's, Please bear with me because I am no graphical expert nor do I know the proper terms for the issues I am expericing. I will do my best to explain them in detail so you will understand. Background: Inspirion|E1705 Came with Windows XP -- Had no problems at this point. Upgraded to Windows Business Vista (Business because it was free through my college) Issues started occuring on World of Warcraft. My system is a 2.0 Centrino Technology dual procession, 1 gig of ram. nVidia 7900 GS card 512 mb. I'm not 100% sure switching Windows Vista caused this issue, but I do know that before Vista I had no such graphical issues. I'd like to give Vista a proper shot and not just switch back over to XP, so thats why I am here. Problems: While I play World of Warcraft, LoTRO, I notice graphical glitchs such as horizontal lines flickering, randomly all over the screen at different times. In WoW I notice specifical huge glitchs where sometimes my entire screen fills up with polygons and other shapes that are just colored in a prismatic way and are completely out of normal. normally swinging my camera around wildly for a few seconds will remove this effect. One of the most annoying problems is I randomly see spots on my screen. VERY small pixles that are different colors, most of the time RED. I think I may have a pixle out on my monitor but when I change screens or scrollup/down they disappear. Its some of the wierdest things. Possible Solutions: Some possible solutions I think may be heat related. I have no way of knowing what my temperature is at when I'm playing these games, but a lot of the times my laptop feels extremely hot. I used to let my laptop run all day and night, just at desktop, but I found that I get much better performance for a long time of gaming if I let my computer rest at night when I do. So I think temperature could be causing some of theses effects. But why would temperature be a problem now that I switched to Vista? Another thing I've noticed. I have some crap driver from Vista that has no nVidia controls on it and its a year old driver dated and I cannot upgrade the driver. I tried downloading the 160 drivers for Vista 32 bit which is what I have, and installing it. When I double click Setup it checks for hardware that it can use an driver to and says none is found. But I clearly have a nVidia 7900 GS which the driver says it supports. All over my game forums I've noticed 7900 GS popping up as problems, but I think a lot of them are at the wrong place instead of being here at guru3d.com with their problems they are at a forum with idiots that troll forums regarding the game. Any help is appreciated, if you need Anymore information please let me know.
