I have some problems with the graphics and colors in some games on my G73Sw 3D.

My graphics card is up to date, was the first thing I checked. There's more info at the end of the post, if there's any more info you need, let me know.


I recenlty got GTA Vice City and this is how it looks:

It's not always that bad like in these 2 pics, but the walls and floors are still not smooth.

I played it before a long time ago on my old pc in XP and it looked fine so it's frustrating to know on my gaming laptop it looks like this.


It happens also in Sims 3 but only with the walls and areas that have a plain color and because of the lighting get a gradient.. You barely even notice.



Other than that.. new games and old games look fine..

Hmm.. I feel so stupid, I think I got it fixed. There aren't many display settings in game but when I changed the resolution I didn't go through all the options to see the 32bit was at the far end and not right next to the 16bit so it was set to 1920x1080x16, I now changed it to 32 and appears fine. But I still have some problems in Sims3, not as bad as this but still annoying to me. Will look into it and post pics if i can't solve it.

Do you have smooth scaling options.
As far as i know some older games dont work that well with newer Graphics cards i myself get this on old games most the time but with new games is perfect try se'ing if the games have smooth scaling options.
