Hey I hope this is the right forum to post this

anyway for the last two days I havent been able to play a single game I own (COD2 Dawn Of War BF1942...etc..)

it just wont load the game, like Dawn Of War for example will play teh cool into then the screen just goes blank and all these mashed up greyish pixels appear at the bottom, then it takes me back to the desktop

when I try and play COD2 it gives me this Error during initialization: Create2DTexture( devfonts, 256, 256, 0, 894720068 ) failed: 8876086c = Invalid call

Does anyone know what I should do? Does this mean my graphics card is out of joint? :(

Reinstall graphics card drivers. What are your specs and operating system?

Un-install your old drivers if you want (I would), and install the latest ones.

Not sure if it will fix the problem, but it is a start and it's good to try.

Or just back up everything and reformat and start fresh. But try reinstalling the drivers as said and try reinstalling DX.... That may fix it.
