Running for: 1 minute, 21 seconds

here's the new error that's occurring with the panelled doors (all varieties using panels).

Also the same issue effects the dresser but in a very minor way and also in a minor way the arcade machine too.

the AMD Mobility driver update is an automated install from AMD so its in its full default state.
dunno what the issue is (other than me not really playing on a gaming machine lol)

thanks in advance for looking over this.

Update: having done a bit of research on this it appears to be a common issue with a lot of programs, the issue is with the most recent AMD driver update for the AMD Radeon HD series including 4xxx, 5xxx and 6xxx. The issue has existed with the game rage which required the graphics settings to be edited in a certain way, word is there will be a fixed in the next driver update for AMD or by the changing of the .bin textures files or something.

Update 2: For those super eager like me to have this fixed AMD 11.10 driver preview found here fixes this texture issue, at least it did for me, however be warned its a preview one so you might break other stuff.

Hi theKodu,

Thanks for your updates on this. It will certainly help other users to figure out what's wrong if they get his sort of graphical destruction.

If you don't want to wait for the new drivers you can always roll back to the previous drivers you had installed.

Yeh I would have rolled back but then I found out my system checkpoint system has been turned off since its last system restore lol

Ah I see,

I still think it's possible on the control panel.

Go to Control Panel and select Device Manager.
Extend the Display adapters and select the graphics card.
Right click over it and select properties.
Go to the Driver tab and select Roll back driver.

I did this myself and worked very well, although it was a desktop.
I'm sure AMD will solve that problem soon though, if you don't feel comfortable doing the roll back
