A while back my computer, every now and then when changing to the screensaver would constantly click from one resolution to another and I would have to turn it off. To try and fix this I formated my hard drive, and it was fine for a few weeks. Now all of a sudden it has started doing this again, however after a while it stops and says 'cannot create Direct3D device'. I have used DX diag and when I run 'test Direct 3d' it says:
'D3D7 Test Result: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x887602eb (error code)'.
I have the latest version as far as I know, 8.1. It does not get far enough into the test to run D3D8 tests. I have tried to re-install Direct X but it has not worked. System: PIII 650, 384Mb, GeForce2 GTS 32mb with WHQL certification.
I asked for help on this problem a couple of days ago, and after following the recommendation to upgrade to Direct X 9, the computer seemed to work fine. Now this evening it has started happening yet again with DX9, with this error message:
Direct3D 7 test results: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x887602eb (error code)
Direct3D 8 test results: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x8007000e (Out of memory)
Direct3D 9 test results: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x8007000e (Out of memory)
Now, not only will the screensaver not work, but no games will. i have just started to download the latest drivers, but doubt this will make a differance. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
