Hi Folks,

first; excuse my rough english-skills. I hope they work to be not understood.

now second, following Problem:


Last Weekend:
I came home and started my PC like every Friday - untouched for 6 Days before.

OK Win2k boots, i came on my Desktop then after the "Greetingsound" my Computer wont take any Order from me clicking with the mouse only cause after 5 seconds a "Bleeb" and the mouse is stucked in the frame.
meanwhile i got diffrent Hang-up types, this was just the first one.
-got the Active-Desktop failure instead of my wallpaper and half of the icons are replaced by Windowsicons using my mouse cause the same bleeb
-the wallpaper is shown but isntead of the icons the activedesktop failure shine through the shiloutes of the icons
-half of the icons are not shown
-all looks well and the monitor get in standby

sometimes when i start the pc i got a active-desktop failure but everything works well.
then another time i got A-D-Failure in 16 colors. any changes of the colormode cause a crash.

So i deinstalled all drivers of the Card and reinstalled them.
I tried first the Omega Drivers then i get back to the Cataclys-drivers but nothing changed.

i only get a "funtion" in VGA-Mode means 640x480 with 16 colors :upset:

I cleaned the registry, was looking for viruses and Spybots, defraged everything i could defrag

I let Sisoft running some Test everything seems fine without a little hint.
Error E2204: DirectDraw Failure aka DX-DD E887600DE

so far from my Ratseeking.

MSI MS-7142
Athlon 64 3000+
Ati Radeon X800 GTO

Boot into safemode, uninstall the video driver, reinstall the new driver directly from the ATI site. Reboot and post back

Look in device manager and see if there is any yellow or red marks on any hardware.
