I have a problem in Crazy Taxi 3 being really annoying. While driving it's ok but when i crash into other cars, objects like other cars, lamp posts and bulidings do white for some time before doing back to normal. Anyone knows how to fix this?

Sorry, forgot to attach all those details. I got a ATI Mobility Radeon 7000 IGP 64Mb. The game runs smoothly but it's just game objects turn white randomly. Below a screenshot how it looks.

I'm guessing this is due to the lack of Pixel shader support. IIRC CT3 asks for DX8 class shaders

Well.. not only the lack of PS support, but it looks like there are some driver bugs there as well, seeing how it looked much better than that on my MX 440. Try to get the latest Omega drivers; the inf is modified to work with Radeon IGP chips. There are always going to be errors on that chip, but new drivers should fix most of your issues.

Well, running the game isn't hard. Runs real good but the gliches are too annoying. The wierd thing is when i drive slowly or fast without crashing into ANYTHING nothing happens. The grapfics stay good. As soon as the taxi touches anything like a lampoost or a other car, 80% of objects visable around go white.

That sounds like a lack of texture memory.
Can you increase the video card memory (many laptops allow to swap system memory with video memory in the bios)?

(or try lowering the texture quality or the games' resolution)

I normally run it in 640x480 but this has the white gaps. About the increasing card memory, i dont as i turn the laptop on, it shows some Toshiba screen and starts loading windows. I don't know when to press or what to press as there aren't any screen "press this to do this"

Try whacking F1 or the 'DEL' key

Well thats done. But, when i press F1/Del this Toshiba menu comes up with 4 pictures. One looks like a stash of cds, other one is 1 cd, 1 floppy and the last one is 2 pcs connected together. There is no text describing what each does. I tried all of them and none get me to the bios. I got to read the user manual to make sure...

Edit: Actually, what i have gotten into is some kind of Toshiba menu. I tried to press F1 and del when booting but del gives that annoying beep and f1 goes nothing. In the manual it said i have use HWsetup (hardware setup) it's a alternative way to chage cpu and other optins other that through the bios. That doesn't work. Re-installed it and still doesn't want to go. I running out of ideas how to get in to that damn bios...

Edit2: Yepp, im in the dead spot. I just found out that to get into the bios of a toshiba laptop, you have to use the Toshiba Utility which in my case doesn't work. When i try to run it it says "Common Module terminated!" I re-installed it with a cd supplied with the laptop and still nothing.
IS there a way to get that untilty working? From Crazy taxi 3 gfx going wierd, thing have turned into a completely different type of thread, sorry going offtopic.
