I put this computer together December 2003 and I've never had this problem. Divxs, mpgs and wavs as well as older programs like Starcraft are running quite well, have a slight and probably related problem with Starcraft, whenever I alt-tab out itll skew all the colors when I come back in. Regardless of this, whenever I try to start a game(yeah I'm a gamer) that uses the new version of directx I have on my computer, I get an error message that says that my video card is unsupported or that one isn't present. I obviously have a video card present, my moniter is plugged into my computer through it, and I've exhausted all the troubleshooting methods I can find in windows. I downloaded and reinstalled Directx and it didnt help. Any suggestions?
