    I recently installed DX9.0c and immediately found that Direct Draw was
    stuffed. None of my games run, the PC just locks up.

    does anyone have any idea about whether their is a compatibility issue
    with FX5200 cards and DX9.0c?

    cheers

    No, I run 9.0c without any problems at all. The whole (maybe only:))
    point of the FX5200 is DX9 compatibility.

    Tried updating/reinstalling drivers? Which ones are you running?

    reload chipset agp vgart driver and video card driver, should be
    fine, using the same card and 9C no problems.

    An earlier post mentioned a bit about reinstalling the AGP driver in
    regular (not Turbo) mode to cure instability. From what I remember,
    VIA's "Turbo" AGP driver only enabled FW's and (maybe?) 8x, but probably
    some timings also.

    I was originally on the 56.72 drivers. Once I had the problem I
    upgraded to 61.76

    I will try the VIA AGP driver that was mentioned in another post and
    see if that helps.

    cheers
