X1900XT showing odd colors in 3dmark06 canyon test

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
ok my problem is that when ever i run 3dmark 06 when i get to the test with the dragon thing and the flying ship( i think its the canyon test?) half of the test will look fine and the other half will turn everything to bright green and blue.

This only started to happen when i used ATT to OC so im thinking its a option thats making it happen im just not sure which one?

I think its the HDR/SM3 that is messing it up cuz everytime a bright lighting effect shows up on the screen it will do the weird colors. From what i can tell it is only happening when there is bright areas like the sun reflecting off the water.

Has anybody had the same problem or any idea of how to fix it?

Drop any overclock you have on the card and see if you still get it.

Also what temp is your card at 100% Load ?

Also try installing the G-card drivers again by doing the following.

Installing Graphic card driver efficiently!!! When you Update your graphics cards drivers theres ways that you should go about it. Follow these simple steps below.

1.Download and install ''Driver Cleaner'' Here:
http://www.drivercleaner.net/professional.html
2.Uninstall your Current Display drivers such as your ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' drivers.
3.Now run ''Driver cleaner'' and depending on the Drivers you have you will have to select either ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' from the drop down menu. Only select the main title of the driver in the drop down such as just ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia''
4.Once you have selected Your driver click on the ''Start'' button and this will now start the driver cleaning process. ( Do this twice to be sure )
5.Now reboot your system and Download the latest Nvidia or ATI and go ahead and install them.

Doing this avoids driver corruption and conflicts so you can now enjoy smooth gameplay.
