Hi Bob,Seeing as we have the same video card, I hope I can help out!I had close to the same problem as you with the ground textures looking "sky" blue but the environment textures looking normal. Seems that you have to disable the "TABLE FOG" option on the Radeon for things to look normal. Only way I know how to disable that option is to download a tweaker and do it by hand :-). The tweaker I use is Rage3D Tweaker which can be found . Another avenue you may try is to try using Radeon drivers made by Omega. They're better than the "official" ATI drivers and are set-up to avoid having to tweak every option/setting. They can be found [link:www.omegacorner.com]HEREGive that a go and see if it helps.As an aside In the past I would always install the VIA drivers first, reboot, then install my display drivers. Never caused me any grief. Good luck!!Mike

I'm running into same problem, just started happening. Trying to figure out the problem, don't think it's my vid card though. I thought it might have been an incompatibility with a sound driver, but I think it's something to do with the latest VIA drivers. Still trying to work it, if I come up with something I'll let you know too.Joe

My problems have been intermittent, but you may have hit this nail on the head. last night I had loaded a "profile" for my vid card from my tweaker...and I just checked and it has table fog enabled. This evening I've not had that problem and I'm running a different profile...table fog happens to be disabled in this profile.Thanks much!B

I am still getting a random hard lock, not sure what u mean by the rage3d tweaker. I have the "Radeon Tweaker" by Todd Kulesza and Dan Giralte. Not sure how to lock the refresh rate.Looking forward to learning more...I'll go study the tweaker some.Bob B
