I am using Windows XP home on my computer at home. I just reinstalled a clean version of Windows XP home. I ran Dxdiag so I could run the test under the "display !" tab called "Test Direct3D" and I found what might be a problem. The test does bring up the spinning cube but the cube is spinning so fast you can barely make out that it is a cube and you cannot read the "DirectX" writing on the cube at all.
Normally I would not care but I am having graphic problems with a program that uses DirectX. When I first installed the OS, I could run the test and see the cube spinning and I did not have problems with the application. I have submitted a help request to Microsoft but I wanted some feedback from the forum as well.
What would you suggest? Should I un-install DirectX and reinstall? I am pretty sure I am running the latest and greatest version of DirectX. As I said, I am running from a 2 week old, clean OS install.
