i got a XFX R7 260X card when i installed it directX 9.0c stopped functioning in windows xp, i run the DxDiag and test Direct3D and the 7.0 and 8.0 tests work but not 9.0 and no games will run.

When i play games in windows 7 the computer will randomly reboot sometimes i could play for a few hours sometimes for only 5 minutes.
