Hi there

Wondering if you can help. My bro has an ATI 9800 Radeon. On Prince of Persia there was this strange glow effect he could not get rid of, and now on splinter cell PT the same kinda thing is happening on the thermal goggles. I've downloaded the latests driver but its still doing it, even when we turn the graphic settings down.

Think he has a 3.2 P4, and 1024 DDR RAM, so its well up to the spec.

Anyone any idea as to why?

I believe its the very latest, which I think might be version 9.1? I may be wrong. Basically he has a new game every week and normally they will have the latests direct x version on the CD.
