i went to play a game (well my dad) Playboy Mansion (i don't like it personally) but started the game but the gra[hics is all weird all really whitish and can't see anything. i was wondering if my video/graphics has died. i have a RADEON 9200SE and i have a ATi thing in the system tray which has something to do with the monitor.

Everything for the system requirements is fine. But i'm not sure about ATi Radeon,

i think mine is fine. 9200SE the game says 7500 or greater.

Any help?

Did you try uninstalling and then reinstalling the game?

Dear Izzy,

This happened to me while I was playing doom 3.

This is how I fixed it:

1. Got a new hard drive cable. A good one not cheap.

2. Added a Vantec fan card for extra cooling to my vid card.

3. Replaced power supply to Antec 550 watt.

4. Download updated drivers for vid card.

ATI and ASUS both said to replace power supply. I didn't believe them but after I did the above my game worked.

ATI also mentioned that heat plays a big factor. Since then I have been on a mission to cool a extreme gamers computer properly.

Do you have FryCry...the game? Try playing that and see if the same happens. I use FryCry to test my vid cards. The game really puts vid cards to the grind.

Let us know,

junkdk :thumbsup:

Dear Izzy,

Good. And you didn't have to spend a dime.

Although, everything I told you was a true event.

It just goes to tell you, try the simple fix first. :thumbsup:

Take care,
