Hello,
I have been buying and playing games at bigfishgames for about 6 months. Suddenly Directx9.0 games aren't working for me. They will load and start and then my screen will just go bright geen or soft yellow and I have to do a hard reboot. I have learned SO much trying to fix this. I have run updated drivers and then uninstalled them, I have run the directx diagnostic tool. Both Directdraw and direct3d are enabled. when I run the directdraw test it works fine -- when I run the direct3d test the monitor ends up blanking out bright like I described in the games.

I know I have a relatively lame onboard graphics card. My question is: why would some games USED to work and now not? And is the GMA 3000 [on an intel q963/q965] SUPPOSED to pass the the direct3d test?

I am a total noob at hardware/driver issues even though I am good with software -- so give me the answer for dummies! thanks!
:)
