problems with graphics card/Test Direct 3D

  iqs 23:07 17 Apr 2007

Hi,WIN XP Media,Radeon 1959 Pro

I have just received my new PC from Evesham,everything seems ok except when I try and install games.The two I have tried have failed to work?.

I have used dxdiag and used its diagnostic Tool,test direct draw and test direct 3d.

On the first test(test direct draw) the white bouncing square moves to quickly,and the spinning DX box on test direct 3d is yet again spinning to fast,its blurred and distorted.

Can anyone assist please.Thanks

wolfie3000,I did as you suggested.I updated DX9,the drivers istalled I believe are the current release.I'm not 100% sure,will check again.

I contacted Evesham Tech dept,I was told by a very nice,friendly advisor that the images used with the tests will look blurred.This is due to the acceleration and speed of the card.

Is this correct?.Cheers
