I have been having troubles with Direct X while playing Ragnarok Online (AnimaRO). Other computers I play this on don't have a problem. After I play for a while, maybe 1.5 - 2 hours straight the video will freeze while audio and the rest of the game continues. I am able to alt tab out of the game and terminate the process but when I try to start the game it says there is a problem with Direct 3D and closes the program.

I ran dxdiag and indeed there were direct 3D errors. The only way I have been able to get the game to work is uninstalling and re-installing the video card through the device manager. Only to have direct 3D crash within another two hours of game play. There must be a better way to fix this problem. :confused:

The attachment thing wont work at the moment so I'll just post the error messages I got during tests.


Edit: Attachments work now. DxDiag.txt attached.

I'm now having this problem with Guild Wars as well.
Here is an updated DxDiag file.

Please I'm begging you! Help Me!

see if you can try another card, it sounds a little like a heat issue but I'm thinking the card is on the way out

I just bought the card new. Like 3 months ago.

Every other game works fine (ie: bf1942, bf2, bf2142) on medium to high settings.

I know, but things break, if fact thats the pattern for electronic stuff, it either dies within a month or 2 or 3 or it lasts forever. I hope its not your card but boy thats sure sounds like it.
You can run Memtest and a hdd diagnostic but I dont think that would show up with the problem youre descibing.
