In Desktop Displays, make sure the options match your monitor's info, and ensure the game has the right resolution. Also, use the drivers guide in my sig to update your drivers.

If the game isn't running properly, a lower resolution will help, although it may affect the resolution. Fill in your system specs and the game - use the preparation section of the troubleshooting guide in my sig. Try the info in the above post too.

Go to the catalyst control center, click on "video", then remove the check on "use application settings"... You'll need to open the control center on advanced mode to do that... I also changed the 3D settings back to balanced as I'm on a integrated GPU, and this seems to work, not only on Warcraft III but also on other games as well... Hope this helps!
