Built a new pc - all is fine apart from a directx issue. Games appear to play ok but video is dark and slow usless unless I turn down the hardware acceleration (which solves it) I have included below screengrabs from directx that I hope someone can see whats wrong. Have downloaded the up to date Nvidia Geforce drivers (9.147) and Directx 9.0c Realise a solution is to leave hardware acceleration turned down but surely this is not the best solution? Should I try an older directx? Do I need to enable directdraw in Bios or something? I look forward to (any) advice G X PS - have tried reinstaliing directx and rebooting 3x!
