So I recently formatted my computer and put XP back onto it (Ugh). I installed all the drivers and the one for my graphics card. When I reinstalled a game I play and began playing every minute or so the screen will start turning random colors and I can't see anything going on in my game. It has happened on multiple games (League of Legends, WoW) and I have no idea how to fix it :D

What graphics cards do you have? What version of DirectX are you using? What game?

Please let us know if you are still having problems or if you found a solution.

To run dxdiag:
go to start, Run and enter dxdiag
Give it a min. to bring up the diag screen
The first tab will contain dxversion and other basic system info. The display tab will provide info regarding your video card.
At the bottom of dxdiag is the option to save all information. You may save the info and then attached the file in your next reply so that we can look at how your system is configured.

I would also recommend that you go ahead and update directx. http://www.microsoft...es/directx.aspx
Go to that url. ON the bottom right is another link to "Latest DirectX Downloads for Gamers". Click on that link and download "DirectX End-User Runtime".
Once downloaded just run dxwebsetup.exe. Follow the prompts and it will update your directx.
