So I got a new computer built today, and installed SWTOR, but upon startup, the screen resolution goes all crazy, and any movement causes green, pixelated distortion. Any fixes?

Check the set resolution in the configuration utility, change it down if necessary.
Check graphics drivers.

List the specs.

I should specify, the issue is that the resolution of the game confines the game to the upper left corner, but the resolution for the rest of the screen expands. The toolbar at the bottom gets larger, game gets tiny. I have no clue what's going on.

Radeon RX 460 graphics, and do you mean the screen resolution options in the Radeon program or the game?

Set the game res to 800x600
start it up and make sure you can see it at full screen
then adjust the res to where it should be.,

Check your drivers

I can't change the resolution, the game is on the loading screen and frozen completely. Oy.

Anyone have a potential fix? This build was very problematic and having this issue after all that has me pretty severely butthurt. My current mood did not need this.
