Warcraft III bringing down overall graphics qualit


Likes # 0

Hi my name is Britta, and i've recently bought a very nice ASUS laptop to enhance my World of Warcraft experience, and for that it works very well.. up until I installed Warcraft III that is.. It's the only thing I can think of that could possibly bring down the quality of my graphics across the board, in WoW and on the desktop, browsing the web, etc there just seems to be less pixels available to display images, video and games.
I am of course running Vista Home Premium (blegh) and my system specs are as follows:

Asus Notebook G71G/G71GX Series
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8700 @ 2.53GHz 2.53GHz
6 GB of RAM
64-bit Operating System

I apologize if i've left anything out or if it's unclear my initial computers and problem solving skills are pretty lacking.. hence a post in this forum.
