    I recently formatted and think I have reinstalled and updated all the drivers (Direct X, Video Card, ETC) But none of my games are working, Same problem with everything, They crash to the desktop instantly without an error.

    Sometimes it can crash almost instantly, Or it can take a few minutes.

    Can you guys suggest drivers I may have forgot about or suggest other ways to fix this problem. Thanks in advance

    Try re-installing DirectX. Download the latest version from their website. 99% of the time this ever happens to me it is because of DirectX.

    I have reinstalled Direct x 9.0 b and c twice, but i'll do it once more for good measure, Any other ideas? a friend just directed me to www.viaarena.com and told me to download the chipset drivers but it hasnt fixed anything :wtc:

    If this is a non-Gigabyte brand Radeon 9600 series card, and your motherboard has a Via KT400 chipset, set the AGP speed down to 4x.

    That chipset overvolts the card at 8x. It runs it at 1.5v, as opposed to 0.8v.
