They were having problems with the radeon cards with AA:O. I suggest that you check that your drivers are updated from http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and your video card website. If that does not work then use tech support on americasarmy.com

ok, i've downloaded the drivers on te Microsoft website,but i only had to download the drivers for my soundcard(creative 5.1) After they were downloaded, there was a error for installing them. They are downloaded to my pc; but not installed.

I've found the windows update log and it says that while installing there was no more data available... i know, strange.

now is my question: i found the downloaded stuff on my pc, but i cant install or anything else. So i tried the creative labs site were i had problems again with problems with finding drivers. I send an email to creativ... i hate this soooo much..

I would recommend "reformatting" your pc!!! It helps a LOT! Then reinstall ALL latest drivers! Give that a try! :D

Have you checked to see if your video card isn't overheating? My 9700 pro fan burned out about a month ago without my knowledge. The screen would go orange, yellow, and red keeping the shapes and outlines respectively. I had tried all the driver crap, using different settings, and I even went back to the Geforce 2 just to see if it did it. The GeForce 2 didn't do it so it was the card and not the rest of my system. I had to find what was wrong with my 9700 pro card. I just so happened last week to look in to the case and notice that the fan on the V-card was not spinning. Very problematic. During a month and a half of problems with shutting down had the fan not turning evident. It's hard to see so make sure you check it out. The easiest way to tell is touch the heatsink. If it's hot as hell then it ain't coolin that card of yours. Good luck and tell us what you find.

If you plan or reformatting your hard drive, than I suggest you get Partition Magic and create another partition on your drive and save all your info there and then format the drive. Creating the second partition allows you to save all your downloaded stuff to that partition and you won't loose it when you reformat unless you format that drive too.
