Hello,
Since the last patch the graphics are going black. The characters gear turn black, the scenary turns black. If I go to "system" "graphics" and hit "recommended" the whole screen goes black for a second or two, then comes back up and everything runs normally for a little while. When I zone into a different area, it does it again. It is doing it on my desk top and lap top so it has to have something to do with the game. Is anyone else having this issue? Thanks...

This might be the issue, come back and tell me if it helped.

1) are you playing in full screen?
2) if yes, what is your resolution + desktop resolution?
3) set your game res to the highest your monitor allows and see if that fixes it.
4) alternatively set it into windowed mode.
5) what are your specs and are your drivers up to date?

Yes

Highest, I went down one, then two, and it still does it.

Still does it

4) alternatively set it into windowed mode.
Also same in windows mode.


5) what are your specs and are your drivers up to date?

All drivers are up to date and running properly. Ran 3D Mark Vantage to check graphics, computer running properly.


It has to be something in WOW since my desktop and laptop both have the same problem. But, now the WOW repair tool is no where in my folders.
