    I have had an on-off problem with a my newish ATI card (Sapphire 1950Pro) and DirectX, in that games and the DxDiag tests crash if I try to run them.
    Specifically, the DxDiag Direct3D tests fail as follows:
    HW v7 Test fails at Step 8 with generic error: x80004005
    HW v8 Test fails at Step 8 with generic error: x8876086c
    HW v9 Test fails at Step 8 with generic error: x8876086c
    I have tried the following:
    * Falling back drivers;
    * De-installing and re-installing drivers;
    * Driver version regression;
    * Registry First Aid
    * Norton's WinDoctor scans
    * Alternate drivers (Omega v38360) - which "fixes" the problem, but is unstable in game play;
    Help ! (please)
    I have attached a Hijackthis log and a dxdiag scan output file.
    System Spec:
    AMD Athlon 3200+
    2GB DDR Ram
    Sapphire ATI x1950Pro 512MB
    Windows XP Pro SP2
