Do any of the precompiled binaries function?

Ie.. C:\dx8\samples\Multimedia\Direct3D\bin\pointsprites.exe

ROFL, sorry, I just had to laugh at Fuzztrek''s comment, "The WIZARD?"

OK, um, what wizard?

Try opening up VC++, select File->Open Workspace and browse into your DirectX SDK folders to locate one of the sample programs. Should be someplace like C:\DXSDK\samples\Multimedia\Direct3D\Billboard

Select the .dsw file and open. Then press F7 and then try to run the sample. If that resets your machine then something really is wrong.
