When I have a microsoft game open such as freecell and begin to play a game such as Modern Warfare 2 an error message appears on the desktop. It states "Failed to create DirectX device". When I click ok the error message closes and so does the freecell
game. Modern Warfare 2 plays without a problem. If I play Modern Warfare 2 without a frecell game open then there is no error message. I have reinstalled directx (9.0c) from the microsoft website and reinstalled display drivers. Ran directx tests everything
ok. In the registry under directx default reg_s2 (value not set). Problem started a couple of days ago. prior to then no problem.
