    do you guys know what my problem could be? my pc hangs/restarts whenever it has to render some 3d graphics, or even when it simply has to use directdraw or direct3d. it even hangs when i press the "test direct3d" button in dxdiag. it even hangs when i use the drawing tools in microsoft word!

    i do believe its something to do with directx. the problem is only "solved" when i set my video hardware acceleration to "none". but of course i dont want to have forever sluggish graphics. any suggestions...? btw, i using windozeXP pro.

    What version on the nvidia detonator drivers are you using?

    What version of DirectX do you have installed?

    Have you been to Windows Update and installed the necessary updates?
