    I restarted my computer, and suddenly I realized, some 3D games no longer work. Source Engine games work, along with some older 3D games like Swat 4 and whatnot...

    The latest UT3 Engine games have stopped working, as have some other recent 3D games.

    I checked the EventViewer and found this, it's the only error that stuck out:

    NVR0FLASHDev

    The NVR0FLASHDev service failed to start due to the following error:
    The system cannot find the file specified.

    Now the odd part being is, I looked further back in my log and found entries for this for quite awhile back! How odd I thought, but then I remembered the games I played lately, and they worked! But certain 3D ones no longer do.

    So I booted into my Vista boot, and they work in it...so it's not a hardware issue I believe. The problem lies in the software. The problem is I have NO idea what caused this, because it goes back a few months, and it seems I've just been lucky enough to play games that work.

    Overlord II worked for a few days, but suddenly started giving me an error saying my Video Card didn't support the features required. I went into my Vista boot and it worked in that...so I'm concerned.

    I honestly have no idea where to go from here. I've tried re-installing my drivers, cleaning them out before re-installing, and using a registry cleaner.

    Looking at my log, around the time the error happened, the log shows this:

    The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
    AFD
    ehdrv
    epfwtdir
    Fips
    IPSec
    MRxSmb
    NetBIOS
    NetBT
    RasAcd
    Rdbss
    Tcpip

    I can trace the error as far back as 6/26/09, the NVR0FLASHDev error that is.

    I read this link: http://www.msfn.org/board/nvr0flashdev-service-control-manager-t127200-pid-817800.html#entry817800

    Did as it said, rebooted, and it was a no go. So I deleted these registry entries as this suggested:

    Then another site told me to try re-installing nTune, but it didn't help at all.

    Games like COD4 & 5 worked, but suddenly don't now, but work on my Vista boot.


    Thank you for any help.(Also, I just noticed, but I posted this at 9:11...epic)

    Uninstall nTune, registry sweep, reboot. Then see how it is. If still hosed, then do a Restore, then delete the program, and sweep your registry.

    Doing a full re-format for this is pure insanity. It's like doing a re-format just because your recent edit to a document didn't get saved. Always be ware of the "Do A Full Reformat and Re-Install" advice because it is like cracking a peanut with dynamite. Let us know how it goes and what you find, cool?

    ntune isn't the fault here, the issues are symptons of further reaching Default system services issues.

    Well thank you, I managed to solve it eventually.

    Now my issues lie elsewhere...I'll make another thread for those. Thank you for your help, though,
