Hi there,

I have an nvidia fx5200 installed in my computer.
As soon as i install the nvidia driver, dxdiag and infact anything that uses direct x greater than 7 totally locks up my computer.

On a fresh xp install before installing the driver it works ok (albeit slowly)
Does anyone know why this might be?

Thanks

The drivers have dx 9 features installed and are looking for them DX8 is old dude get 9c August update. And use the 77 drivers for the fx being their somehow the best for the fx brand.

I tried both of your suggestions
Didn't make a lick of difference.
I'm specifically interestedd in getting DXVA working on my DVB program, and also to try out the purevideo codec.
But right now i even get a hard crash in the nvidia 3d settings.
