direct x and/or graphic card problems
Posted on 2003-02-22
Hi first of all I'm running the following system specs:
K7S5A MOTHERBOARD WITH AMD DURON PROCESSOR 1GHZ
40GB SEAGATE HDD
MSI CDROM 52X
RICOH 24xR/8xW CD-R/RW
HERCULES 4000XT TV-OUT 64MB 3DCARD
Connexant V.92 56K Data, Fax, Voice
SiS7012 Sound Card
Windows 98 (First Edition)
As you can see I'm running a 4000XT graphics card, which in the past I have had no problems with. I recently wiped my entire system as I have done many a time and I reinstalled everything again. I installed the drivers for the card using the driver cd that came with the hardware and all was ok, but when i installed direct x 8.0 the direct 3d test didn't work. I tried updating the card drivers from the website, still no avail. I then updated my direct x to 8.1 and still nothing.
Has anyone experienced a problem like this before? or have i done something really simple?
The direct draw test runs fine but the direct 3d doesnt and when i run direct 3d games the screen is extremely corrupted and crashes most of the time.
