Erm, no DX won''t scale textures. If you''re using the D3DX functions, try calling IDirect3DDevice8::CreateTexture() yourself, and see if it still crashes.

Stefandxm is right, dude. I really think you''re gonna have to rescale your textures to be powers of 2. I''ve had no end to texture troubles when using resolutions that aren''t powers of 2, and I''ve got a GeForce 3. Take his advice and rescale your textures.

G''day!

The D3DX Texture loaders will rescale, but that''s a bad thing. It''ll create a 1024x1024 and stretch your texture across it and it will look like crap.

The D3D Loaders will not stretch it and will likely just fail.

Are you checking the return values of your functions? There is no way that loading a texture should take down your system. it sounds more likely that your load failed, and you''re trying to use random memory and that''s what is causing your problem.
