Default Re: Pny Fx6200

I'm having another odd problem. I can not boot into safe mode, each time I try, it just reboots. No problem in normal mode, how's that for an odd twist. The website that I downloaded DX from, wanted it, and the hotfix and reg file installed in safe mode. I really do not remember, but it isn't necessary to install DX this way...is it?

Since I couldn't load DX yet, I went ahead and installed the FX5200, just to see what happened, and Halo would not load at all, it had an error message saying that it could not initiate Direct Draw. However, Jedi Academy and Tomb Raiders, which were freezing up on the 6200, appear to be normal with this card. At this point, I think it's a tossup as to whether the problem is with DX or the 6200...maybe both.

My next step is to find a way to install DX, can I do this from the normal desktop?
