Removing DirectX

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am not sure if this is going to make a difference, but I would like to try and remove directx and reinsall it. I have been having problems with my video card when playing video games. When I am playing the card will play fine until it locks up. The music in the game will start repeating, and then stutter real quick. I don't know if that makes much sense, but anyway it will free up after about 30 sec and then continue fine. This happens without warning and for no reason. I have seen it happen when my temps for my card are fine, so I am assuming this is software problem. Any help is useful. Also I do have the latest directx and nvidia drivers, so I don't know if this is going to do me any good.

There is a way to remove DirextX, but not from Windows. You'll need a tool such as DirectX Eradicator. It's somewhat risky, and occasionally will mess up your system.

However, I don't think that could be the cause of your issues. What games specifically are having issues?

I believe DirectX is intergrated to Windows... just update it.

It's most likely not a DX problem though.

Ok that sounds like a no for directx. As far as the unstable overclock I wouldn't think that would be the problem. I haven't overclocked it yet. Its only BFG's factory overclock, which doesn't look that significant to overheat a card. I only bought it because of the BFG name since I owned one in a previous system. I was not too concerned with the overclock they put on it.

I've been playing Oblivion and UT 2004. Oblivion detected me to run it at ultra high quality, and of coarse it doesn't budge hardly with UT. Both games run fairly well, but still lock up occasionally. This is a drag when playing online, but for Oblivion its manageble. I still like to play online, so I don't want to keep having this problem. Could there be something wrong with my card?

I have a 500 watt Turbolink. I thought I was getting an Apevia, but I guess Newegg sent me this one. I didn't think it really mattered, so I kept it. Apparently it was the price I thought I was paying, so I didn't get ripped off or anything. I was expecting a 500 watt power supply, so I didn't really think it significant to send it back. This should be ok right?
