To solve your problem we need dxdiag and files from this folder: "C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\DayZ\"

Can you pack the files in winrar and upload it somewhere please?
When the *.rar will be smaller than 2.097k, you can attach it here. Thank you.

When reporting please refer to "How to guide"

This happens if you have SweetFX installed to improve the color of the game! so play in windowed mode.

If you do NOT have SweetFX installed then you have modified files within the DayZ folder being used while ingame.

I can confirm this with a screenshot if needed

EDIT: I run Windows 7 64bit and this only happens with sweetFX installed not sure about windows 8 give me an hour and i will install windows 8 and test for you.
