DirectX 9.0c Problem

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.games (More info?)

I am using Windows XP Pro with all upgrades available from the Microsoft
Windows Update. Recently, I installed the DirectX 9.0c and some issues
appeared:

While running games (Half-Life for example) my computer started doing one of
two things after having played for some time (for how long I can play before
this happens seems random):
My PC spontaneously restarts (I see a flash of a blue screen with white
text, but the computer restarts so fast it's impossible to read what it says).
Or it simply closes the game I was running and returns to the desktop (I
have experienced this with Internet Explorer as well...).

I am using a GeForce2 MX/MX 400, with the latest software update from nVIDIA
installed

What is the problem? What can I do? There is no way to uninstall DirectX,
and I have already tried reinstalling both DirectX and my video card driver
but it doesn't fix the problem.

Major thanks in advance

Hi Kasper,

Your system is indeed restarting as a result of a STOP error.

To stop this behavior go to Control Panel / System / Advanced /
Click the Startup and Recovery Settings button / Uncheck the box
labeled "Automatically restart" under the System Failure section.

To analyze the error, try the steps in: http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.htm

If the error indicates a file name that begins with ati, or nv (nVidia)
the most likely solution would be to *reinstall* the latest drivers using
the instructions at: http://mvps.org/nibblesnbits/Video.html#drivers

Thanks...

Turning off the automatic restart enabled me to read the STOP-message, but I
am still unable to discover or fix the problem. This is what the message said:

Technical Information:

*** Stop: 0x0000008E (0xBF801ECF, 0xF3160C44, 0x00000000)

*** win32.sys address BF801ECF base at BF800000, datestamp 41107f7a

Can this help discover the problem?

Thanks a lot...

This was followed shortly thereafter by another crash and the following
message:
....
The problem seems to be caused by the following file:
win32k.sys
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
....
....
Technical information:
*** Stop: 0x00000050 (0xE2357C74, 0x00000000, 0xBF8010FD, 0x00000000)

*** win32k.sys - Address BF8010FD base this at BF800000, Datestamp 41107f7a

And this time I wasn't even playing a game - merely using Internet Explorer,
and having MSN Messenger open.

Thanks for your assistance (If I am posting this in the wrong place please
inform me...)

Well, the errors seem familiar enough, but I am still unable to fix the
problem. What should I try? And how do I disable BIOS shadowing if I am
unable to find such an option in my BIOS Setup Menu?

Thanks

Hi Kasper,

Your motherboard manual should have that information, or you could
call the computer's support tech if it's a brand name system. There are
some suggestions on the KB link provided in the 2nd previous post if
you search for 0x0000008E at: http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.htm
