WinXP Corp - DirectX Problems
Posted on 2002-07-24
Ya know the phrase RTFM?
Well, I was having DirectX problems with my system, thought, thats fine, I'll just reinstall, found a version of dx81 for 2k and thought, sweet.
Well, I installed that version on my XP Box.
Now I have real problems.
Every now and then (at least twice a day) the system reboots itself automagically (typically when trying to use DirectX Video stuff) and when it reboots, the system has DISABLED HW Accelleration on my card.
Reinstalling that version of DirectX 8.1, rebooting, and it all works fine until the next reboot.
Any idea's for troubleshooting/fixing?
And "Reinstall WinXP" is not an answer, I want something quicker and easier ;)
