Hi, I bought this card few days ago.

I have problem with it that the Direct3D is not working with it.

I have re-Installed the WinXP SP1 OS and also Nvidia latest drivers and also the Directx 9 but none is fixing the problem.

In the dxdiag.exe program the DirectX is working however in
Direct3D it acts as follows:

Directx7 test fails
Directx8 ok, but it has purple snow on the rotation cube.
same for Directx9.

Someone knows if this is hardware problem or software???

the card is brand new.
