Okay, so I just installed CS on my new laptop (running Windows 7, with an Nividia NVS 3100M graphics card), and I'm having some visual glitches. Once the game was installed I was given the choice of which video device to use and was presented with two options, software or accelerator. I chose accelerator, and upon booting up, I've found that some menu text is rendered as multicolored pixels, usually multicolored boxes. This appears on the title screen at the bottom, and in the menu when I go to set my controls. As you can imagine, this is a pretty big problem, since I can't set controls (I have no idea which controls I'm setting) and I don't know if there are any other glitches just waiting to appear once the game itself begins. From perusing this forum, it appears that using software rendering mode (whatever that is) might fix the problem (and I assume this was the software option I was offered) and I'm wondering how to go about changing it back (if I can). The game is patched to 1.02, and I never had this problem on my old comp (Windows XP, Radeon X1550 graphics card).
