DirectX Problem

by janjulien / July 18, 2008 12:41 AM PDT

I have ran dxdiag, Display Tab, tested DirectDraw, its okay, but Direct3D is the problem, this is the result:
irect3D 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 = 0x8876086a (3D not available)
Direct3D 9 test results: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x8876086a (3D not available)

What should i do?
What's the problem? Is it my video card? the driver? the temperature of my comp, etc..

Could be normal. Here's why.

Many laptops with Intel GMA video give such results. The errors are normal since there is no 3D chipset.

But there are some effects on my computer, such as, when i play warcraft 3, the screen flickers, then turns black, for a while, then warcraft shuts down, after a few minutes, the screen goes blue and messages appears "...has been detected and Windows has shut down to prevent etc." and "Problem seems to be caused by the following file: nv4_disp" and " Device driver got stuck in an infinite loop etc." and "Physical memory dump" something like those...
What could be the problem? Is it my video card? etc.
TY

You may want to complete your post. Also since you now mention WOW, when you start a post share the real issue and not the results of the tests?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
