  1. hi everyone,
    great site you have here. i have been reading a lot of the treads and posts and some good info here. i have a roblem with dx9.0c not working. i install it but when i run dxdiag its shows dx9.0b. i had trouble try to load nfs carbon. it would load the flash page i believe its called and then nothing would happen. i ran ea support and they said i need dx9.0c but i had 2 other games splinter cell chaos theory and hitman blood money running fine before this and they say that they need dx9.0c. anyway got really sick of it not working that i refomatted my c: drive. reloaded my games on and now nun of them will load. i have all the lastest drivers etc as i did read some of the dx problem threads but it still wont upgrade to 9.0c. here is some of my dxdiag test results. any help would be greatly appreciated.
