I assume you've got the latest drivers? Other than that I would try a clean install. I know it sucks but it seems to be the only recourse sometimes. –  NickSuperb May 8 '12 at 2:31
    
Just did the checkup, yes, I'm on the highest version of the driver available. –  Fredy31 May 8 '12 at 2:37
    
I had this problem when my ex-video card overheated while playing any 3d game for a prolonged period of time. –  deutschZuid May 9 '12 at 0:13

I would say that either you need newer drivers for you GPU or you GPU isn't supporten.

The specs:

You card (not sure if this also counts for mobile versions of the card):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radeon_R700

So it has Shader Model 4.1, which is enough (again if it's not a special mobile version which is different).

And you are sure you have the latest drivers from AMD?

You can fill out this and get the latest (I didn't know if you had Win/ 32 or 64bit): http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx

Otherwise there is an autodetect program that should help you:

I hope this helps,

I just had to downgrade my Driver (from Catalyst Suite 14.3 to 14.2) and it got rid of them. Thanks for the infos. –  Fredy31 May 16 '12 at 12:24
    
@Fredy31 Ok glad it help, though it sounds strange you have to downgrade, unless it was Beta drivers. –  Holger May 16 '12 at 12:35
