• Getting Triangular holes everywhere

  • So yeah, I have triangular holes every where, here's a screen shot [url]http://imgur.com/Ms5Yb[/url]. This problem appears in both movie mode and in game mode. Sorry if there is another thread already addressing this problem, i can't search yet for some reason and i have already posted this on reddit (only to get no response) and the steam forums won't even let me post yet because it's pending activation by an admin (which is retarded especially now it's been over 24 hours...) Here's what I've tried so far 1) Updated Drivers 2) Ran Steam in Admin mode 3) Verified Game Catch (in admin mode) (it always says they're are two files missing and I have done it several times) 4) Restored everything to default on SFM PC Specs CPU: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T4300 @ 2.10GHz RAM: 4 GB OS: Windows 7 Home Premium Video Card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4300 Series 512 MB Anti Virus: Norton 360 Thanks for your help guys :smile:

  • Driver problem. Update or rollback your drivers. Also Mobility graphics.. Good luck with that.

  • A friend of mine had this problem on his laptop with Garry's mod, I think he switched to dxlvl 8 or something.

  • it could just be your graphics card or computerset up isnt good enough OR. if all else fails you can try backing up your stuff and reinstalling windows with a fresh install then load sfm back on. see if that helps. sometimes downloaded stuff or whatever can clog up windows cause conflicts etc and youd be suprised how sometimes if nothing else works a simple windows reinstall might do a trick. fresh drivers and all that :-). just a thought. if THAT doesnt work.. sounds like you need a better graphics card my friend.
  • Tried running dxlvl 8 and it didn't help. Re-installing windows for this is last resort, I also tried running Garry's Mod and Team Fortress 2, both of them work perfectly.

  • Not at all, the only thing I've tried is to add a garry's mod map into it. I don't even own left 4 dead

  • [QUOTE=panomama;36918278]I had the same problem, download the hotfix driver from AMD[/QUOTE] This or updating through Device Manager (usually a bad idea in normal circumstances) is the permanent solution.
