That is usually caused by either outdated video drivers, or by not having DirectX 9 installed.
My computer does have Direct X 9 or maybe even 11 installed. I downloaded from the FFXIV beta client if that makes any difference, also I did update the drivers. I'm not computer tech savy, so possibly I went to the wrong place to update the drivers? It's ATI Radeon 5870, and I went to a site I think was sponsored by them. It downloaded a Catalyst driver?
I also have something on there called Catalyst Control Center now?
This is a brand new computer, it's an i7 as I said before, windows 7 64 bit, ATI Radeon 5870 HD, Asus G73. Please if anyone has info on where to go to properly install drivers, or if I should install the beta client from a different place? I did uninstall the beta client and reinstalled from the FFXIV site. So that hasn't fixed anything for me.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, at this point if I can't get somewhere, I may take it to a freelance computer tech. I really don't understand this, its new machine and clean, with Norton virus protection.
Oh to reiterate the problem I am having. I get the little window thats black, no music or anything, and it says FFXIV beta version has stopped working, windows needs to close the program. Edited, Aug 21st 2010 1:41pm by Tolerance4u
