Default Screen freaks out when i try and play NBA Live 08/Madden 08

It started happening once i changed the theme to Windows classic, and color scheme to classic, and downloaded NBA Live 08

I load Madden 08 and the screen turns all sorts of colors, and when i try and turn the monitor off and on the colors change and i get weird lines and crap.

If i load Crysis Demo everything is fine.

So i changed the windows theme and color scheme back to XP, and that didn't help.


Could it be a EA Sports problem? Because both of the games giving me problems are made by EA Sports.

Also of note when i first downloaded NBA Live 08 my screen resolution bugged out on me a couple of times. And ever since i cant play Madden 08( i could play Madden 08 fine before). I just cant ever since i downloaded NBA Live 08, and did that theme, and color scheme change on my desktop.

I also deleted NBA Live 08 off my PC, and changed the Theme and color scheme back to XP, but Madden 08 wont work . Sometime i get a blank screen sometimes i get colored lines.

Help

Try reinstalling it.

Might help if you were a little less "demanding" and be courteous.

Firgured. These types of problems are very frustrating. If it were me, I would uninstall & reinstall.

Maybe put NBA Live on first, then Madden? To see if the same thing happens.

Just tried uninstalling it then installing it again. Didn't work unfortunately.

1. Update drivers
