a 3dmark should test it enough, and i mentioned the other tests just to make sure you never no obviously he`d run all the graphical tests first.

basically whenever i try to run 3dmark i just get a blank screen.....the first time i tried it my computer restarted and came up with a fatal windows error. it said that there was a problem with my graphics card.

apokalipse i tried that driver and it seems to be incompatible with my graphics card.....i got error messages (D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE). so i reinstalled the latest nvidia driver and the error went away.

i tried fiddling with hardware acceleration but it didnt seem to make a difference (i got to the stage where it wouldnt let my game run because i had disabled direct3d.....there was no change in results).
