probably the driver, I've noticed the "sandbag bug" in BF2 with the 91.33 driver.

What card / driver do you have?

I'm running the 91.33 beta, the 91.31 is the latest official release but has tray icon and SLI balloon pop up bug, these issues are resolved in the beta, but the sandbag / shimmer bug is still present on certain BF2 maps for me. No fix I'm aware of to date, maybe when the 91.33 is official it will be fixed, fingers crossed.

EDIT: Welcome to the forum btw

My son runs Oblivion on his 7600GT no problems with the 91.33 beta so you should be good to go.

There really isn't any setting as such to resolve the issue as it is driver based, my only suggestion would be to revert to the 8x.xx series drivers to see if that helps and reduce any overclocks (maybe, though that is debatable)
