Looks like a video card error to me; are you running the latest stable drivers?

I've never actually played JKA myself; does it have a config/setup routine (extra icon in the Start Menu), or a Safe Mode?

yes it has a safe mode. and we did just wipe the PC so do u think the video card driver could be messed up?

What stable drivers do i need?

I believe you can pick which method of rendering is possible in advanced options. Instead of using OpenGL, choose Direct 3D for rendering.

Good luck! :)

I had this problem but now its fixed, heres what you do:
Delete all the opengl .dll files in the gamedata folder except for 'OpenAL32.dll'.

I don't have the game anymore and the thread is years old but you might find it on the installation path of the game. If you just clicked on next when you installed it it should be on C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\

Something like that. Inside the JEdi Knight folder look for gamedata and delete the files mentioned above.
