I can't get DirectX 7 to work on
my computer. I've installed, reinstalled
dx7 several times. I have installed latest
drivers for my sound, video card.
I have tried everything I can think of
but nothing seems to work.
The symtoms are flickering screen,
lockups, the screen sometimes goes
black but the game seems to still
be running, and other less obvious problems.
I'm not sure, but using my joystick seems
to sometimes to make the flickering worse.
The only thing that seems to correct
the problem is if I turn the
Sound Hardware Acceleration off.
But now the games are unplayable
because of the crappy sound.
I would really appreciate some
help since I'm out of ideas.

My system:

CPU: P2 350 Mhz
RAM: 128 MB
VIDEO: ATI RAGE PRO (2d/3d), VOODOO2 (3d)
SOUND: SOUND BLASTER AWE64 Value
