A have a problem with the graphics of old games. Many colours are swapped and in some places there isn't even colourq just black and white dots. It's similar to when you are viewing corupted video files (it looks like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnqe... I try to get a screenshot, the screenshot is just black with some colour line like this

This only happens with some old games (like Diablo, Starcraft, Command and Conquer, Red Alert and others). I tried running them in different compatibility modes but it didn't work.

Try installing and using different driver versions from ATi.com, or omega drivers.

Is there another way. I don't want to have to change my drivers every time I want to play an old game.

Buy Nvidia next time?

Not saying that IS your problem, just saying try it out and see if that works for you, alot of issues with artifacts on ATi cards are due to their less than lackluster drivers. It is well known that one game may work just fine with one version, but than another fails to function or has artifacts and is only fixed by switching driver versions. Sorry.
