Sounds like video card problems. Do you have a video card that can emulate 3D textures?

No, you know if your video card is good enough or not. That\'s pretty much the whole reason of \"buying\" games that you know your computer can handle.

But...try updating your DirectX...

DirectX is such a bitch. Especially when I reformat my computer. I wouldn\'t say it\'s his video card. First see if your resolutions are set at the right options. If all else fails, TOG answered your question.

DirectX

There\'s like 10 versions of direct x 9.0c, all with the same name. So get the latest. Try reinstalling quake 4?
