    ok, i have a radeon 9500 pro, i had recently formtted my hdd because of some probs with it.....my problem is that i can't run d3d games or things, i even tried that thing thats on dxdiag....direct3d test, nd it just crashes, black screen and no responce. i can't run games on dx9.
    i got dx9.0b now with catalyst 3.6 and all drivers updated. default settings where i used 2 run games before i had 2 format my hdd.
