    Distorted graphics in DirectX

    A friend is having some serious graphical issues, he sent me the attached screenshot(s).

    I told him to:

    • Update graphics drivers
    • Reinstall DirectX 9.0c
    • Check DxDiag for any problems
    • Test it out with other DirectX games
    • Change game resolution/color depth

    Some info about his system:

    Graphics: Intel 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics controller
    Memory: 256 mb

    Hes tried it all, nothing's working.. Anyone have any idea why this happens? Post if you need more information or a different screenshot..

    And for those of you who are wondering what game the screenshot is from:


    Some more information:

    Just before this started to happen, his game crashed to the infamous blue screen of death with the error: 'Beginning physical memory dump', after that happened, he started getting these 'artifacts'.

    How can you tell the graphics are distorted when the game looks nasty anyway?
