White Specks and In Game Graphic funk

Q: White Specks and In Game Graphic funk

Ok so 2 days ago my computer started showing white speck on the background and mainly on the windows taskbar. These specs only seem to appear when the computer is processing information. Every key stroke and when the computer is receiving information from the internet. Also Graphics in game seem to be really jacked up. Walls appear where they shouldn't and at weird angles. Characters have large spikes growing from their hands, feet, and end of weapons. I have tried to install an updated driver, scanned for viruses, unplugged monitor and still nothing has worked. Any information to help resolve this issue would be appreciated.

Also, have ATI Radeon HD 4800 series vid card and an AMD phenom 9850 quad core 2.5
I tried screen shotting the specks but they dont show up on screen shots.

Preferred Solution: White Specks and In Game Graphic funk

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)



As you may already know, by the title, I'm having trouble with the graphics of the game 'Black & White'. Everything like the trees and people, are very WEIRD things like eyes, or colours such as green. I have tried everything that I can think of, like downloading a patch from this website (I think it was voodoo 3DFX tools) unzipped it, then tried it, and it still didn't work. Everything else seems to be running smoothly, and problem-free though. Does anyone know what the cause of this problem ?

Help greatly appreciated, aswell as five million pounds.....


EDIT: Website is www.voodoofiles.com/3201
EDITEDIT: (Man I'm obsessed with these!!) Oh yeah, and I've updated EVERYTHING such as drivers and graphic things, so don't ask about them.
EDITEDITEDIT: (Thats it I give up!) I also forgot, that before I had to reboot this computer, that the game was fine, except for the err, occasional crash (due to too many temple things) . And may I add, I hope this is the last edit I make

A:Black & White (the game) graphic problems

Post your system specs, that will help more.

Did you check if there was a patch available for the game, and if so, did you install it?

I need help with taking a picture (Let's say, of the face of someone) then make it so the background is black and the face shadow is actually white.

I'll show you an example.


This is a shirt I bought yesterday. I'm talking about the face (That's an exemple, by the way xD)

Another Example

If you are able to do that, could you tell me how. Thanks in advance (=

A:Graphic Question... Change to Black/White.

You should get near to that effect by changing the image to a negative in your graphics software, then reducing it to two colours. If it's still not quite right and the white areas are black then change the result by making it a negative image again.

Does anyone know a quick way for a newbie to create the black/white checkered graphic like you see in auto racing? I need it for a border. THANK YOU!!

A:Solved: Photoshop CS2 - Black/White Checkered Graphic - like Nascar

Create a new doc the exact number of pixels across and down as the number of squares in the graphic you want.

Zoom in on the new canvas (it's small!)

Then use the pencil tool, set it to 1 pixel in size and create the squares in their approx location - at this size the pencil will look like a square.

Once done, resample your image (Image -> Image Size) to the size you want it to be - with Constrain Proportions checked and the interpolation method as Nearest Neighbor.


oh yeah, zoom out again!

Today I noticed a strange process in the task manager named "BEND FUNK.exe". Google shows nothing. I havent seen any suspicious behavior out of my computer except that when I open the task manager after a few seconds BEND FUNK.exe will disappear, and then if I look back after a few minutes there it is again. An image is attached, and my hijackthis log is below. BEND FUNK.exe does not show up in hijackthis.

Can someone please take a look at my HJT log that I ran. I have something that takes over my internet connection and makes the whole PC run very slowly. I thought I saw a FUNK.EXE in the processes but don't see it here in the log. I've run anti-virus and anti-spyware and it seems like everything has checked out.

Any further advice would greatly be appreciated.

I have Windows XP and every video that plays has little green specks/lines/dots on it. the videos themselves are not corrupt, as I recieved them from a friend whose computer played them perfectly. This also occurs on DVD's, DIVX, and some 3d game intro videos. The specks usually appear in the dark areas of the video and last from a split second up to 5 seconds. I've updated my Allinwonder radeon 8500 to the latest drivers, and the update went through flawlessly. is this a video card problem, ram problem, or as I hope, simply a software problem?

background info for Pirate Galaxy:
Harvester: enemy that drops 10 smaller enemies (this is the only way to make money quickly in the game i play)

when i try to farm harvesters to make money, my game gives me a white screen. this white screen only hapens in the area where i would normally see the game, i have to refresh the page after that and log back in to see what happened. i am wondering if anyone here would know how to fix this issue.


My guesses why this happens is because it is giving more stress than the rest of the game, but this is a normal thing for players to do in that game, and i seem to be the only/ one of the few that have this issue. i have uninstalled directx and reinstalled it, i have done the same to java, i have tried different browsers. all of these have either helped marginally for about 2-3 days and then stopped helping, or not worked at all.

i would greatly appreciate any help.

computer is agonizingly slow.
Slow to start XP and slow to open any applications.
- Upped the RAM from 256 to 768
- clean start with msconfig in diagnostic mode seemed faster
- AVG found nothing
- ran spybot and ad-aware and removed all
- did basic clean out of all temp files
- defragged HD
- still very slow
- trying to ID all the stuff in the startup

I found this web site while searching for information on one of the Startup items funk.exe.
There are other items loading as well and I guess the best thing to do would be to post the

I'm not too good with computers so I'll try my best to explain...sorry if it's too long with useless information...
I have a T41 IBM Thinkpad, around 4/5 years old and I haven't had too many problems with it before. I took with me to India last year and had no problems, and I brought it here again this year. I couldn't use it for around 5 days because I didn't have a converter, and it was working fine for around half an hour. The power fluctuated for a second or two but nothing happened then, but I disconnected it right away for 10 minutes after just in case. I left it for 20 minutes and it went into standby, and when I came back and moved the mouse, the screen was black for a bit with colorful specks and it went away little by little. The mouse was a white box with specks and the screen had horizontal stripes with the specks. It went back to normal eventually, but the background became like this until I changed it
It was then normal, except for certain pages and the ehome window
so I continued working, but then when I set it down the screen turned black and then normal and black again. I left it to see what would happen, but when I picked it up and put it on my lap the screen showed up again. It kept doing this for a while and then the colorful specks came back and when I tried to use the spacebar to look up what was wrong, the file menu kept dropping down on anything I did. I turned it off immediately after and am really worried. I have a ... Read more

Hello, i need to ask people of this problem because i cant figure this out...

Recently, iv upgraded from a GeForce 5500 (which had no problems in the past) to a GeForce 6200 (which is fine for me, out of date i know).. Im finding that whenever i open anything pretaining to Video games or even just random occurences, that it hard-locks and the graphics get very odd.

So, i figured that maybe my computer cant run the game. And it can. So i ruled out that aspect. So it must be my GeForce doing this to me.
So, does anyone have any idea what my problem is?

hey, didn't know whether to put this in utilities or games. it's all game-related so i figured here would be best.

ok. *deep breath* lately i reinstalled windows XP Pro SP2, and i believe my CPU is slightly unstable, either that or my memory. either way my computer needs some new parts. but it runs fairly well. but when i reinstalled it, i gained an unsightly problem.

Upon installing xfire, i discovered that at least 3 parts of it were malfunctional. the ad bar at the top, the info sidebars of the chat windows with avatars, profile links, etc, and the screenshot window you get when you exit a game are ALL white. i can't even click them. and i soon discovered that my problems were not limited to xfire, and this confused me even further.

Steam suffers as well. I installed Steam today and everything works fine. i can see the buttons, tabs, and toolbars at the top, but the actual content in the window is white. nothing. it gets even better....

I own the game pack Star Wars: Best of PC (amazing game pack btw), and when i run the autorun, GUESS WHAT? IT'S BLANK!

this is bugging the crap out of me, because i don't know what's causing it. my main thoughts were Flash Player, Shockwave, or Javascript. nope. i installed them all(correctly as far as i'm aware) and it didn't help a wee bit. my antivirus is Avast!

nevermind. it turned out to be that my ATI Radeon 9550 video card's drivers were corrupted. i uninstalled them, ATI Catalyst, redownloaded the drivers without getting catalyst, and got ATI Tray Tools.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine. If you have uploaded DMPs before please only the new ones.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if ... Read more

Hey out there,

I came upon this site via Google and saw a "thread" from Brenda about the Legos Star Wars game and a graphic card that supports Pixel Shaders v1.1. I read some of the responses which prompted me to visit the Toshiba webpage. I downloaded the detailed specifications for my laptop but I still can't figure out if I have PCI card or AGP card port. I tried to put the information into the designated slots for the registration profile but there is not enough room. I am a Mom of a 10 yr old who was given this game for his birthday in June. I have just finally come upon this website mentioning the same problem. Our laptop is not very old, maybe 2 years. Any help in directing me where to look on these specs for the card info. I need would be greatly appreciated. I see it says expandability "1 PC Card slot support 1 Type II PC card". Is that what I'm looking for? Hey, I email and can find things I need on the web but games are beyond me. I'm just trying to see if I can get this Lego game working without having to buy a new computer.

Thanks for your time and comments.

PC is 3/4 years old with new PSU and HDD in use.
PC was fine after new hardware install.

Had my graphics card OCed for a while (1 year) and had no problems with gaming until about 1 month ago
to which i started getting freezes playing World of warcraft.

I have stopped OCing but this hasnt effected anything.
These freezees still occur in game only but BSOD's happen randomly no matter what.

These BSOD's have only just started.

I haven't ran any tests yet as i wanted to ask for your opinion first with my crash result.

Updated my ATI drivers but had no effect.

Thanks in advance.

Ok, I have read everything I can find and I feel like my head is spinning. I just received a game for my son (Zoo Tycoon 2) we have been playing the demo from the web site and had accidently purchased marine mania and dino digs first. Now I am trying to start it and I don't have the proper graphic card. I have Intel 82810E. The message I get from thier "help menu" says - Intel 82810E - due to limitations with direct X compliance of these graphics chips the game will not start. Driver updates do not resolve issue. Which is true after reading one of the top threads that says to read before posting, I tried all those things and nothing worked. I guess I have to buy or download a new graphic card? I don't know much about computers so my question is - can I find a site, like this one or majorgeeks where I can download a more updated graphic card or is this something that actually has to be purchased and installed in my computer "physically"?

Heya.. I've been searching for an answer to this question all over the internet for about a week now, and I still haven't found anything, so I thought, that I write here...
There's absolutely no problems with MAFIA installation, as I know, many people do. Also, I've reinstalled it about five times, so don't recommend that to me. When I open the game, then first of all, NOD32 determines something.. if you think, that it would help, if I wrote here, what it actually says, then I will write it here, but you gotta let me know. Besides, there's nothing that could be a virus, I have original CD's, right from Gathering of Developer's. Then I close NOD32 form task manager, and open Mafia again (the last time nothing but the NOD note appeared). This time is almost the same, only without the NOD notification. When I look at the task manager processes, then Game.exe appears for a half of a second, but that's all, and even that isn't happening every time. Once, way back, about 3 months ago p) it gave me 'Init error'. Then I looked up in the internet and Illusion Softworks had said, that most of the 'Init errors' comes from the graphic card drivers or not updated DirectX. DirectX is up to date, but here comes my problem, there's just no drivers for my graphic card on ATI website. Ofcourse, I've looked from other sites but still notning normal..

Now clearly: If I open Game.exe, nothing happens, what to do? I ... Read more

Hey guys, my laptop's been acting up and I was hoping to get some advice on what to do. I'll start by saying that I don't know much about computers, which will likely become clearer and clearer with the more you read of what follows, so please bear with me.

Two days ago, I started getting green and pink specks/snow/lines showing up on my laptop's screen, and I have now graduated to blue and yellow specks/lines as well. My initial thought was that I could have a virus, so I ran a virus scan to no avail. I started poking around the internet looking for people w/ similar problems and saw some similar things, but nothing that quite matched my problem. I did however make a few observations that may or may not be helpful that I have listed below.

-emailed a screenshot of the desktop to a friend, who reported seeing the same green and pink specks on the image on his computer that I was seeing (can post if it would be helpful)
-no problems seem to be present when I boot into BIOS memory
-seems like there might be some relationship to the heat of the computer, as the specks/lines seemed to take longer to reappear after allowing the computer to cool off and then turning it on, whereas normally the problem would be evident immediately when I turn the computer back on after shutting down
-there is a definite relationship with the orientation of the computer (tilted) and location and degree of pressure on the case, if I push down hard enough in the right ... Read more

A:Graphics card problem - pink, green, blue, yellow specks/lines on screen

Longer posts mean more information and that's ALWAYS a God-send to anyone trying to troubleshoot a problem. So no apologies are necessary.

As for your problem, I'm going to agree with your roomie. There is very little you can do to fix this. Right now, the state of your computer follows one of the following options:

1) The graphics card is dying from years of use, and may be sensitive to heat now that it has been in use for a while. Computer components follow the same rule as any other piece of equipment or appliance. They're made with planned obsolescence. Eventually, things die for no better reason than that's what the company wanted. Your graphics card is overheating and it's causing what are known as "artifacts". Whenever you see specks or lines appearing at random, that's your graphics card screwing up and outputting random things onto the screen.

2) The graphics card has come loose and needs to be reseated. I'm not entirely sure about this one, but it might be the case given that pressing down on the computer solved your issue. BUT! (and this is a big but) I have no idea if you would be able to access and reseat it. Nor do I know how one would go about doing that with a laptop graphics card. I've never seen what they look like, how they're installed, replaced, or whatever else. You also risk breaking MORE things by opening it and trying to screw around in it. If you felt like spending a bit of money, you could ta... Read more
