I got a new 2600 Pro (8x AGP) card, and the latest drivers installed for it.
DirectX is updated, and we've even tried older versions of the driver.
When we go to play World of Warcraft for example, it will load the login screen, but it will flicker back and forth from the desktop to the world of warcraft screen. This appears to be the case for everything that tries to load full screen.
No 3D games will load, but 2D games will.
When I tried to run the Stability Test for grapics cards (the ones with the floating earth thing that spins around) it gave a more detail error.
Plug and Play Monitor ATI Radeon HD 2600 Series 1280x1024 WIN5.1 Service Pack 2 DirectX 9.0c installed Generic application error.

All the drivers do the same thing . That's the first thing I thought of, but it really annoyed me when like all the drivers did the same thing. Right now we're using 8.43... I'm so stumped as to what this can be. Does anyone think a reinstall of WinXP would be the solution?
