Windows 7: Starcraft Coloration Not Working

Well, it's hard to think back on those. I did try installing new drivers to no avail. I through it was working on my previous graphics card, but it wasn't really a graphics card. It was an integrated graphics card which is why I wanted to get a better and improved graphics card. I've been looking around the internet and determined it could be either 1) an issue with nVidia graphics cards specifically or 2) it could be artifcating of the game where the game is just too old and won't work for 7 at this point. Regardless, the .bat file fixed the color scheme, but the graphics continue to perplex me. Again, a redescription of what I have is as follows. In the top left corner, where the single player button is, a black box flickers on the screen. On the entire left side of the screen, black lines flicker everywhere. Some people have this issue as well, but I've tried many things and still can't come up with an answer. Perhaps I'll just have to go without for a while. :?

Sounds like a bad card. Can you try it with another one?

Na. I got nothing else. :? Like I said, I may just have to wait until I can try another card or until I get a new comp. :P Perhaps I could try it on my laptop and see if it works...

If your card is OCed, STOP. If it is not, it might be going bad. Does this occur on any other games?

Scratch what I said earlier. I went back to Warcraft 3 to see if it had any problems. Low and behold, it does. I tried reinstalling the game to no avail. Not sure if it's a graphics problem as well, but if it were, something definitely might be up with the card. Although I have no problems running most my other games. I'll let you know if I have any other games that have problems.

Well, turns out my graphics card is bad. The fan has stopped working and I'll have to get a new or fixed card in order to get anywhere. Thanks for all the help though guys.

Somehow I am not surprised.
Get a new card, and you should be fine.

Ya. I'm running back off my integrated graphics card and have no issues with games at the moment. The card probably was the issue. Hope after I get a new one I won't have any problems. :?

Hi Moochmaker,

Sorry to hear about your card :/ let us know what happens whenever you get around to getting a replacement though. We'll be happy to pick this thread back up.

Well. As I mentioned a long time back, my graphics card had gone bad and Starcraft wasn't working properly. nVidia fixed my card (fan issue) and sent it back. Since then, I have upgraded to a much better HD monitor and cable now. But, as I wanted to play Starcraft (the original) again, I tried it out to see if there was any problems. Again, the coloration is all screwed up in the game. I remember that when I switched back to my integrated graphics card, the game ran perfectly, but on this GeForce 9400 GT, I get nothing but problems. The main problem is that when I go into the game, the left side of the screen goes crazy and a bunch of lines show up on the screen as well as a big black box in the upper left corner. I ask again, is there any fix for this or does my graphics card have a problem with the game itself.

Note: None of my other games have graphics issues that I know of. Just Starcraft.
