View Full Version : open gl problem lw 7 b or hardware

03 March 2002, 02:42 AM
Hi everyone im trying to find out if im having open gl problems due to a bad gf 3 card or lw problem 1st heres my ssytem set up 1.4 gig amd athalon , msi k7t limeted board and a gf3 card second card is a pci ati card with 768 memory running xp

the problem im having is when i back the obj im working on from the scene (zoom out) a lil i see wire frames broken up a lil through the shaded part in the corners i see just the frist part of the back facing wireframes and when i move an obj isee what looks like the normals breaking up its not real bad but real distracting ive heard other people say they have this problem once in a whil especialy when gettting into higher polys im wondering if its a 7 b thing or my harware

Ive reinstalled drivers and tried other drivers ! i have no other problems with my card settings for nvidea drivers are at default my card is about 6 months old so i havent really had it that long dont know if its going bad but i could use some advice ?

thanks in advance

also reinstalled lw and the patch for it

Have you checked the newtek forum, it seems that GF3 is the problem:
Newtek forum: Dual Moniters under Win 2k, Open GL only on primary? (

I think you could find an answer
