    Yesterday I went to open Combat Flight Simulator, & ended up with a black screen, in which the only way out was to shut down my PC. I un-installed & re-installed the game twice, to no avail. The only progarm I can remember adding since I used the program was Gimp,so I removed Gimp & re-installed CFS, but got the same problem. I checked other 3D games, Riven, Homeworld, & got the same thing. I then went to dxdiag, & when I ran the test on Direct Draw, Direct 3D, & AGP rendering, each of them gave me the same black screen at some point in the testing. I re-installed DirectX 8 to no avail. A few weeks back, I upgraded the drivers for my internal SIS 6326 AGP display. They did not seem to improve anything much, & perhaps the frame rate seemed even a little slower. Anyway, I would welcome any thoughts any of you might have. I'm running a PII 350, 224mg RAM, 40g 7200RPM WD hd.
