re: missing textures in games

Hi, when i play half life:source it plays ok until i put antialiasing mode on and i get white lines and artiacts in distant view (but short distance is ok.) In the intro when he's on the cable car.

i also have a problem of  missing textures in the distance in warhammer:dawn of war and call of duty.

In call of duty long grass and trees disappear.My card is new its a geforce 6800 gt.

Sounds like you need to update your graphics card drivers. Go to the Nvidia website: http://www.nvidia.com/page/home Also check that you have the latest version of DirectX installed. Check the DirectX diagnostics tool (from system information) to ensure that it's working properly.

In the diagnostic tool try disabling Direct3D & AGP Texture Acceleration, exit and re-boot. Open diagnostics again, and re-enable D3D & textures. Does Directx7 work now?

Suggest try an older driver then, I see the Nvidia site has version 61.77 in the archives. May be worth emailing your card manufacturer to see if they can advise.
