Here's the problem, I've had directx 9.0c for a while now, for about 2 months. And I just now realized these 2 things. I've done the following: Installed 8.1 from windowsxp disc, Reinstalled Service Pack 2, and Installed Directx 9.0b. None of them have fixed the problem.

....


Yep, I was right - I still don't know nuthin' :trumpet:

Here's a link (notice I didn't say that it'd help!): http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...b;en-us;Q190900

Now your problem is probably that you're using an ATI video card (just kidding, I'm an nVidia devotee).

Seriously tho', there are some known issues with nForce chipset drivers - what kind of motherboard (make and model) are you using?

All I know is DirectInput is the DirectX interface for joysticks, gamepads and the like and DirectPlay is a way of allowing games to communicate over the internet or LAN. It's all very tightly related to device drivers.

I'm curious how you reverted to an earlier version of DirectX since DX is supposed to be uninstallable?


Can you use System Restore to go back to before the problem?

Have you run Windows Update recently?

Have you installed the latest drivers from the manufacturers for your motherboard, video card and sound card?

If none of that helps then all I can suggest is a Windows repair installation.

My wife has a P4C800 mobo and it's incredibly stable for her. I generally shy away from 3rd party "fix-it" utilities, they have (in my experience) a great potential to hose your system.

I'd agree with Rimmer - you're probably looking at least at a repair install of Windows. Here's a link to a "how-to" that I use: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

I'm reading into your post here a bit, but it appears that you install/uninstall a lot of programs on your system. Now, each install and uninstall routine usually doesn't clean off your hard drive or your registry of everything that was installed. After a while this can cause problems (I tweak and also install/uninstall lot's of programs on my system) with system stability.

To overcome this I use a program called Total Uninstall. It has you create a snapshot of your system before and after the installation - that way, it can restore your system to the exact state it was before the install occurred. There are some files and registry entries that cannot be uninstalled automatically by this program - but it'll let you know which entries they are, so that you can manually remove them.

Here's a link to the last freeware version: http://www.aplusfreeware.com/categories/util/uninst.html
and here's a link to the shareware version: http://www.martau.com/

I liked the freeware version so much that I got the shareware version and paid for it!
