Games not running!

#1

Yesterday I purchased a GeForce 2 MX400. I am using ExperTool along with it (speeds up core clock).

Everything used to work perfect. Now I turn it on and some games wont start. I couldn't start Renedage, Grand Theft Auto 3, or MOHAA. There is just very little hard drive activity in the beggining and then it stops and doesn't load. I don't know what the problem can be so I need help here! Any suggestions will do. I've also tried 2 different drivers.

What OS are you running. All of these games require DirectX version 8.1 . It sounds as if your version of directX could have been damnaged. I would suggest that you reinstall directX 8.1 and give it a shot, and as always make sure that you have th latest drivers for the card.

overclocking can make the video card crash…


#4

Could be the config files if the games were installed prior to your new gfx board…

I think I’ve figured out the problem. When using ExperTool (a videocard configuration program), it displayed that the DirectX version is 0. I’m pretty sure that not normal, right? :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

I’ll try downloading a new version of DirectX.

I’ve got GTA3 to work (check the “GTA3 is addictive” post).

And I’ve also got the rest of my games to work (reformatted hard drive, seriously!)
