I am having a corrupted video and not sure what is causing the problem. I have reinstalled STO and also reinstalled my ati drivers from Alienware. Earlier in the day it was working fine and then boom they turned to this. I have been playing for months on the same drivers without so much as a hitch and now this.
As a test I went and ran 3dmark 05 and 06 which came up just fine. I also have Lord of the Rings installed and I was able to play it just fine with no corrupted video. I even went as far to try windowed mode, I turned v-sync on which was not.
My fear is that I may have burnt up a card. But here is what gets me, I uninstalled the ati drivers completely and logged in and the video was normal. It wasn't as sharp as it normally is but it did work. Well here's the link to see my screenshot. Also the Laptop is an Alienware M17
