I'm having a strange problem.
While explorer.exe is running my direct3d tests in directx fail. Besides that i can also not use the ALT+ combinations. The tests fail because i 'pressed a key' which I obviously didn't. The ALT+ combinations just don't do anything.
I can temporarily 'solve' the problem by either killing explorer.exe or reducing my color quality from 32 bits to 16 bits.
However this was not always the case, everything has worked fine for years on 32 bits and with explorer.exe running and I have no idea what caused the problem.
It looks like a key is pressed continuously, but i've tried to do the test with other keyboards or no keyboard at all. Same goes for mouse.
I've also stripped my pc down taking out everything one by one or replacing it (graphic card, sound card, memory, etc) to test, but nothing makes a difference.
I've formatted my system drive and did a fresh XP install but that didn't help either.
Does anyone have any idea what is causing my problem?
Thanx in advance.
