Direct draw support / Geforce 6600

Discussion in 'Nvidia' started by Dan, Sep 7, 2005.

    Hi,

    WHen I upgraded my pc recently, I also upgraded my GFX card from a
    geforce 3ti200 to a geforce 6600.

    However - I'm finding that a lot of "old" (ie 2 or 3 years) games /
    demos will not run on the new card - producing errors like "unable to
    load texture", "Can't initialise direct draw" etc..

    I am using a multiboot system with win98se, winme and winxp - have
    tried various versions of direct x, and a couple of versions of the
    nvidia drivers - (77.72 and the one supplied with the PNY geforce card)
    - have also tried dxeradicator and driver cleaner to remove all traces
    of direct x and the nvidia drivers, before a fresh install of the mobos
    agp drivers and dx /nvidia drivers, still get the same error message

    SO - I decided to install my geforce 3 ti200 - all bar one of the demos
    worked fine..

    Any ideas what I can do?

    It gets through the dxdiag tests, but It seems I have registry errors -

    With this many "is missing" reports, I'd recommend reinstalling DirectX.

    I'll try reinstalling DX then - is it best to install it before or
    after the graphics drivers?

    Before would most likely be better.

    Tried it afterwards, and ended up with a totally unstable system -
    could barely load windows explorer windows without hanging! thank god
    for dx eradicator!! (anyone know if that works with DX 9?)(
