WoW Weirdness

I've been having some strange problems with the game since... a couple days (possible a week). I log on, which works fine, then I watch the blue bar move to the end of it's box on the load screen and...it just sits there.

I know the game's done with loading as I can ALT-TAB out of it (which it refuses to do while loading). This happens both with and without addons loading. Occasionally I do get in, and the game seems normal. Then today it lost the content of the minimap and when I got back to the character screen is was a single solid colour, with just the buttons and the labels showing.

Suggestions?

Do a Repair scan first. If that doesn't work, fresh install of the game. This sounds like a corrupted file issue. After that, we're looking at something wrong with your hardware itself -- drivers, fragmented files, failing hardware, etc.

Scan (check) suggested everything was alright.
After logon, I seem to be in the game, as it actually responded to /exit...

I guess I'll go for the reinstall... =/

Sounds more like a video card problem to me.

Update your video card drivers. Graphic glitches are usually associated with bad drivers or a dead/dying card ... not corrupt game files ..


If an update does not work then maybe a complete uninstall and than a reinstall of the drivers will work.

Remember to restart the PC after each install / uninstall of your video card drivers to complete the process. Even if it doesn't tell you to do so.

i would also check your gpu heat, had similar problem.
i had graphic corruption etc, and turned out my gpu was running way to hot. as that was down to the vents round the fan being clogged up with dust...

worth a look )

good luck

Must have been (hopefully) a glitch with addons. I removed (physically, rather than disabled) all of them and it seems fine. I moved them back a couple at a time and it seems gone.

Thanks for the suggestions though. I'll keep those in mind should it recur.
