family, you've never told us what your video card is... What is saying you have a problem with your color scheme?

What does dxdiag say?

Click the start button in the lower left corner of your screen, type
dxdiag
in the Search box and OK it.

When dxdiag appears, choose the Display tab.
What does it say for the Name: of the video card?

Here's an example of what you might see
http://www.windowsresource.net/cimages/dxdiag2.jpg

The top circled thing in the picture is the "Name:" and it should say something more specific than just ATI.

Is this a laptop?
If it's a brand name computer, what's the brand and model number?

Any thoughts on why the video is "jittery" in Dracula 3?


Like Jenny said, it may be a drive issue. I seem to recall having a few jitters myself, and I used a GTX 460.

No, we were asking what is the brand of your computer. We know you have an intel processor. What is powerspec?

Examples of brand name and model number of computers:

Dell Inspiron 660

Dell XPS 8500

HP Pavilion p6-2400t

HP Envy-Phoenix h9-1440t

Gateway DX4370-UR10

eMachines EL1852G-52w

b810 seems to be a processor number.

Unless you computer is a homebuilt or custom built in a shop, it will have a brand name, like HP, Dell, eMachines, etc. -- and a model number, like XPS 8500. Do you see anything like that written on your computer case?

OK I found this
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2352518,00.asp
so there is a Powerspec brand after all. But there's very little about the b810 on the Internet about it. There's a powerspec.com website, but unfortunately nothing about a model b810 at
http://www.powerspec.com/support/support_archive.phtml

So I guess we can't tell much about your computer from the model name and number. I was hoping we could look up whether the video card had discrete video memory or only "borrowed" memory. Dxdiag doesn't distinguish.

By the way, did the computer play all these games that aren't playing now before it was "upgraded" from XP to Windows 7? If so, maybe it's a driver issue.
