View Full Version : Kneeboard Display Problem
07-20-2003, 01:20 PM
LAST EDITED ON Jul-20-03 AT 01:30PM (EDT)[p]Hi,
I recently installed a Radeon 9800 Pro graphics card (using 3.5 drivers). Whenever I open the kneeboard window and try to move it, the remnants of its previous position(s) remain displayed in the window along with the elements at the new position, and the window becomes unreadable. This only happens in "full-screen" mode and changing the resolution does not make a difference. I'd appreciate any help with this. Thanks.

LAST EDITED ON Jul-20-03 AT 01:39PM (EDT)[p]This issue has been reported with certain installs on FS2004 as well - AND it's been shown to occur on the 9500, 9600, and 9700 cards too. It appears to be some sort of driver issue which is causing the full screen mode to have issues. Windowed mode is just fine.
Do you also get a flicker when switching from a full-screen 3D mode into a 2D "Windows" mode (or menu mode)?
It should be noted that while not all users have experienced this problem, it has been apparently verified as a legitimate bug somewhere in the chain. Probably a computer system software vs. driver card software porblem.
Report your issue to ATI and describe the problem to them - be sure to include a VERY detailed description of your computer - as much as you can (audio card drivers, vid drivers, etc. etc.)ATI has been quite good about fixing any bugs in their drivers, so the info won't hurt!
See this thread for more - although it does get a little off-track with other problems and opinions at the end...

I had a similar issue after switching to an ATI 9700 Pro. I beat my bald head against the wall for almost a week. I tried everything, including a clean install of windows. The sim would work fine for a day and then would whack out again. In desperation I tried to retrace my steps and could only think of one change I had in common.....I like the gold 3D pointers in windows and keep turning them back on after reloading......I turned of the pointers, going back to the default and all was fine again. I have never used the pointers on a gaming machine in my house since and haven't had any wierd issues either.
I don't know if this will solve your problem, but it's one more thing to look at. I would also recommend getting rid of Window's Blinds if you run that program....I found it causes very similar issues.
