  1. I recently bought world of warcraft after checking blizzards homesite for minimum capabilities. I'm running a intel pentium 4 processor with 3.0 ghz. I have a gig of ram and a radeon x300. According to the site, I easily pass. The only problem is when I go to the login screen, I get a black backgroud with flashing white vertical bars completely omitting the statue-portal background My friends say my video card is dying but my computer is only 4 months old. Went through the troubleshooting that blizzard had. Nothing had any effect except when I opened it in opengl. then it turned had the statue-portal background on the right side facing inward and rotating back and forth. Would it be my video card? Could it be defective? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Dude, i would seriously go to www.ati.com and grab the latest drivers for your card. They are updated all the time there and this sounds a lot like a driver issue. Hope that helps mate :giddy:

    EDIT: almost forgot. make sure you uninstall your old drivers first and reboot. then install the new drivers and reboot again.
