Issue Details
Once I start Age of Empires, the colors change drastically - see picture attached - and the game is unplayable. I tried every recommendation I was able to google, none of them worked (including most mentioned "kill explorer" solution). The only one way how to solve the issue was reinstalling system - and the game ran perfectly, when I had no graphic card driver installed. However, once I installed it, the problem appeared again.

Graphics Card
ATI Radeon

- include the specific brand & model (ex: ASUS Radeon HD7970-DC2-3GD5)
- if any over-clocking is being done then provide GPU & memory clocks, and the application used to over-clock

AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
AMD Radeon HD 5800 Series, model RV870. I have the latest driver, and the problems did not appear before I upgraded.

Operating System
Windows 7

Motherboard or System Make & Model
ASUSTeK Computer INC., P7H55-USB3

CPU Details

Motherboard BIOS Version
- the BIOS version is displayed as soon as your system is powered on (ex: ASUS BIOS 1015)

System Memory Type & Amount
7F98 KHX1600C9D34 GX 4GB DIMM DDR3 PC3-12800U DDR3-1600 (9-9-9-25 4-34-10-5)

Check 13.11 Beta 9.5.

Probably they resolved it.
