after the power lose, everything seems fine, windows booted up like normal and applications runs as usual.

however, whenever I try to launch anything related to Direct3D, the screen becomes black and the system freeze.

I updated DirectX to the August 3 2006 build, driver to 91.33, but the problem remains, could the power surge cause damge to the video card or other components?

the monitor is Gateway 20" widescreen LCD
video card is 6600GT 128MB AGP

You dont have black screen issue when you launched Direct3D applications before power surge?
