This game is almost 20 years old and may experience issue with current graphics cards and drivers.
You should use the last driver that worked with this game.
Thanks, I really appreciate the response.
1.18 is a new patch released only a month ago by Blizzard in preparation for their remastered version. It has been, supposedly, modernised to work on new systems, so I'm not sure this is the case.
I've attached further pictures available at this link here: http://imgur.com/a/b9eqz and screenshots of another issue with my card, which may relate to the issue I experience in my original post.
A few observations/notes:
1) I have certainly installed my card correctly to the best of my knowledge. It is firmly seated in its slot, and indeed, I have tried multiple slots and they all have the same issue. I have taken care not to damage the card or handle it improperly, particularly along the connecting strip.
2) My graphics card is not recognised correctly in windows (perhaps?), but I have installed the correct driver.
Could you please take a look and let me know of what your opinion is as to the problem? Is it a faulty card?
Have you tried running it in compatibility mode? (WinXP or Vista)
