    Definately make sure DX9a is installed and then make sure that you install the vid card drivers exactly in accordance with the manufacturers instructions. Remove your old drivers first.

    What exactly is happenning? Are you seeing artifacts on screen prior to shutdown? Does Windows crash too or does 3DMark just quit and take you to the desktop? Does Windows crash too? Does your computer reboot? All that would be helpful to provide suggestions.

    um..thx for replying, first of all 3dmark does just quit and goes to desktop, the first game test works, second makes it quit, if i try to make it skip the second test, then it just restarts windows. no, the games are actually fine, but preformance just seems a little short of what i expected from a $400 dollar videocard...
