Default White flashing images in Doom 3

Im getting certain areas of my screen flashing white and then back to color during Doom 3. The outline of these areas is always part of a character or part of an object or a drawn graphic image (these are not random white areas). Does any one know what this means or how to fix it? I have tried many other drivers but to no avail. As FPS increases it gets better but does not go away. Never seen this in any other game. Apologize if this is an obvious sign of something but I am not a computer expert. Appreciate any help you can give me.

System specs:

Biostar M7NCD mobo
AthlonXP 3000
768mb DDR RAM Corsair
XFX Geforce 5700le 256mb
WD 80mb HDD
Creative SBLive value
Samsung Synchmaster 700ift 1028X768 @ 70mHz

Mild agnosticism —the view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."

Sort of sounds like artifacting from heat or a defective video card. I had stuff like this in Half-Life 2 and had to lower my overclock a little bit, it was the only game that this happened in.

If you arent overclocking then its possible the card is just dieing\defective. Wait for some other opinions though, Ive never experienced this exact problem myself.

Thats what can i think of as well . Doom3 is so sensitive & hardware demanding that even an old PSU can cause artifacts in it . thats what i had actually .
