it seems to me that you have some sort of corruption with your video card driver. Try uninstalling the driver you have and installing the latest driver.

Also, check your monitor driver and make sure you have installed a driver for it and not the Generic PnP driver that Win 7 installs.

But my monitor is a bit old, I don't think there is a new driver for it. I've updated my graphics driver. No dice. I didn't uninstall though. Strange thing is I tried playing NFS: MW, it works just fine.
