Problems with new GF2 mx400
Once in a while, while trying to play video, or my screen saver, I get a blue screen that has a bunch of numbers and stuff and says "A Fatal Exception has occurred in VXD VIAGART"
Everytime I run my screen saver it does this, then I press Esc and it goes back to Windows. I cannot run DXDIAG, it says there was a problem accessing the DirectDraw feature, and if I bypass it, then the program works. Otherwise I get the blue screen again. Also, the "Test Direct3D" button causes the blue screen.
I push the "Test DirectDraw" button and when it's done I get this message:
"DirectDraw test results: Failure at step 14 (Blitting offscreen plain to primary surface): HRESULT = 0x88760037 (unknown error)"
I have the latest Detonator drivers from NVIDIA, and Direct X 8.0. I just installed this card today.
Anyone know what's wrong, and how I can fix this? Would a format help?
