so i upgraded my vid card to a hd 6950. now i keep getting unable to detect directx errors after 10-30 minutes.

ive googled this done everything. driver sweepers, set the settings to low. i was able to play on high/standard with my 4870 with no crashes just a little laggy but it seem on even lower setting on my new card i get lag. well not server lag but pc lag the frame skips and stuttering and the crash

just wondering if anyone else has a hd 6000 series and knows of a fix i may not have seen

as i said i uninstalled drivers used driver sweeper ect. updated to latest drivers. vid card is not OC'd and its not getting hot and shutting off as the temp is only 58c right after ffxiv crashes. all my other games work fine.. well except fallout new vegas its been randomly crashing too lol but that happened with my old card too.

any help is much appreciated. also please bare with my poor grammar and spelling as its 8 am and ive been up all night trying to fix this and am barely awake. in fact ill probably fall asleep right after posting this. so i hope i wake up to some good answers lol

thanks in advance

Edit: forgot to add

win 7 ultimate 64 bit
4 gig ddr3 1066
q6600 quad core at stock 2.4ghz
um i think thats all the info needed

Hmmm, Have you tried updating your directx installation? also..are you in safe mode when you use driver sweeper?

Here's a thread with a similar issue, maybe it will give you some insight?

ive tried going to the microsoft site and doing the web install for direct x and it says i have a newer version of direct x installled so im thinking since i have dx11 its not letting me install 9.0c which is what ffxiv runs on. anyone have any idea how to uninstall 11 so i can install 9.0c then reinstall 11

Do you have any other newer DX9 games lying around? Easier to install an offline game than reinstall XI...

ok i figured out what it is but i have no idea how to fix it.

it happens everytime i get a message or notification. aka "windows has found new updates" or someone messages me on msn or i get a email notification. and it only happens on fullscreen. didnt happen with last vid card but at least ive narrowed it down somewhat.

its always crashed if i alt tabbed over but now any message like just now "aliens torrent has finished downloading" message from u torrent poped up and crashed ffxiv.


looks like im gonna have to play windowed from now on. til theres some kind of fix

Play in windowed mode and turn off automatic updates, there is no fix

ahh ha ha, yeah the game will crash anytime it loses full-screen, so it can be something as minor as you described.

I've used this in the past and it's worked wonderfully I know an update broke it some time ago but from what I gather it's been updated:
