Hey !
I'm just a beginner with Managed DirectX but for info :

public void SetDisplayMode(
    int width,
    int height,
    int bitPerPixel,
    int refreshRate,
    bool standardVgaMode
);

So I bet your problem comes from your 0 --> try 60 for example, standard refresh rate !
0

Hi,

I think passing in 0 as the refresh rate just uses the default refresh rate of your monitor. Anyway my program works just fine passing in zero.

It could be that your graphics card does not support 1024x768 at 16 bit.

As a quick test try 640X480 at 32 bits.

Failing that try enumerating the modes that your card does support:


DisplayModesCollection modes = new DisplayModesCollection(localDevice);
           
foreach(SurfaceDescription desc in modes)
{
  //harvest the information in some way
   //relevant fields are desc.Width , desc.Height , desc.PixelFormatStructure.RgbBitCount                
}
