So im sitting back playing World of Warcraft and all [bleep] breaks loose with the game, all of a sudden i cant keep the file open long enough to do anything. Next thing i know, the somputer crashes. Power save mode with the monitor and all the blinking led's on the case come to a screaching halt!

So i run Directx Diagnostics. I run the tests to see if there are any issues with dx. Test 1, passes flawlessly. As for Test 2, my hopes couldnt be more crushed. The second test failed me in the 'Test Direct3D' option.

1> anyone know what this specifically means
2> are there any fixes around this OTHER than going through microsoft webpages



Peace out,
Brack





.... more than once this has happened, but first time i noticed directx diagnostics
