    Hi,
    I've been having some problems recently playing various games such as WoW and Black and White 2.
    I think it isto do with the following errors i get when i go to dxdiag...

    Direct3D 8 test results: Failure at step 29 (DrawIndexPrimitive): HRESULT = 0x8876017c (Out of video memory)
    Direct3D 9 test results: Failure at step 29 (DrawIndexPrimitive): HRESULT = 0x8876017c (Out of video memory)

    Does anyoneknow what i can do to fix this???

    I'm running a Radeon 9800 pro on a pc wth Directx 9 and a celeron 2.66G processor

    How much video ram does your 9800 have? Is it independent or shared memory? If it's shared, that could explain the "Out of video memory" errors.

    Try updating graphics drivers/reinstalling directx

    If that fails, use DXBuster to remove DX9 and then reinstall it again.
