Serious help needed plz(Direct3d errors)

Postby Disturbed1 on Mon Jun 09, 2008 10:43 pm

Ok im having problems with what seems like my graphics drivers,steam games or directx,im not sure but im annoyed as it was working fine before getting DOD:s to work,which isnt working fullscreen as it just crashes in that mode.

Heres what happened.

1st i ran DIAXDAG an performed a 3d device test for direct3d i got the following results

Direct3D 8 test results: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x88760827 (error code)
Direct3D 9 test results: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x8876086c (error code)


Now none of my games work which use direct3d,they just either CTD no errors or like steam ran games i get a "cannot create 3d device" and the game closes.

I dont know much about installing,uninstalling drivers,i have ATi dispaly,control centre listed in programs but not sure which one to touch or reinstall,.

I have downloaded the june directx9.0c redist to try and see if that works,do i just run that and let it update the old DX or what,i really neeed any help on this plz.

UPDATE 1 :
restarted computer,after entering windows my HDD went full whack for about 5mins,not sure why,it stopped i ran DIXDAG and instad of running test i disabled all 3d acceleration,then i enabled it and saved the information.
ran TF2 so far so good,not sure about trying to run DOD:s fullscreen though,may make it reoccur.
