VIDEO CARD PROBLEM

I just purchases a new system and assembled it.  Athlon 750 Abit ka7 mb.  I bought a diamond viper II graphics card.  Problem is it does not work when running any of the games I have on my system.  It works when changing the settings on my desktop but not when I actually run the games.  Even changing the resolution settings in the games does nothing. Picture is very grainy.
I have reinstalled the drivers and the drivers from the Diamond web sight to no avail.

You got all the activex drivers and such loaded ?
When you run the game setup - what video controller is it detecting ? Sound like you dont have the gl or activex drivers so the card is running in dumb low res mode.

Hi

    Install the latest version of DirectX and see if it improves. Also

1. goto Start->Programs->Control panel and double click on the DirectX panel
2. Click on the Direct3D tab
3. Make sure only Use Hardware Acceleration is checked. If the other two are checked (Enumerate Ramp Rasterizer & Enumerate Reference Rasterizer) then uncheck them

Hope this helps
