This sounds like another bug in another game. Since the game works up to that level, I would not suspect the hardware. Only the game maker may have a fix.
Hello. I recently built myself a new desktop. the specs are
windows 7 64 bit home premium
3.6 ghz zambezi quad core cpu
2 x 2 gb 1600mhz ram
amd 6670 sapphire gpu
500gb western digital 7200 rpm hd
asrock 990fx extreme3
corsair 600w gamer series power supply
I have been playing mass effect 1. i am about 15 hours into the game, no complications thus far. can run the graphics at ultra but play on medium just to not stress the gpu that much cuz i know its not the best gaming card. I went to the planet noveria and got to peak 15. when i enter the garage, all of the characters, myself and my 2 teammates, turn in to black blocks. i can run out of the garage and it is just fine. i puts me back to me. but as soon as i run in, i turn into a blob again.
I checked to make sure my gpu was not overheating cuz it is only running around 45-53 celcius while playing mass effect or world of warcraft( which runs fine btw).
I next went to check my drivers were up to date. first let windows 7 check to see if it needed an update. it said no. didn't trust it all the way so i went to amd to check. their site also said i was up to date
next i went to the catalyst program to change settings. i went through 1 by 1 and turned everything off and would load ME1. still broken. Next i turned everything to max. same result. I changed all the settings in game in the same manner. No change.
i figured the files for ME1 must be bad so i uninstalled and reinstalled and i was still a black blob.
Any help that you can give me would be great cuz i am really at a loss for what is wrong. its not like that section is more graphic intense, all other games have worked fine. thanks a lot.
