Simcity 3000 Intro page flashy

#1
when i load up my Simcity 3000, the intro page (lets you pick from starter city, load city, preferances, ect) flashes, i think its the video card, but im not sure what i would do to get it right.

DX9.0a
TNT 2 Pro 64mb
1152by864 resolution
32bit highest color quality

drivers are as up to date as windowsupdate.com will get them
theres no option to turn down vidoe quality

*my girlfriends computer is an old PII, hers is definitly older than mine, but plays the intro screen better than mine.*

btw: the intro page is just flat surfaces which when you mouse-over they start to wave, and the verticle lines that get all fuzzy occure the entire time mouse-over or not.. goes away in the game though... any help?

Not sure what is wrong, but you may want to find the latest drivers for your GFX card from the manufacturer's website.
I done this to fix the fuzzy image i got on some other game I tried to run.

windows update drivers tend to blow slightly - especially for nvidia cards. I recommend getting drivers from http://www.nvidia.com and giving them a go. alternatively, turn down the colour depth to 16bit colour - I cant honestly see that 32bit is going to do an awful lot except cut fps on a tnt2 graphics card (I've had one myself in the past to know this).

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
