He is saying that the crash happens with HLSL disabled... which most certainly means his problem has nothing to do with HLSL.
EDIT: If I would guess, he was probably watching some .exe manga/hentai porn videos (at least it's what his avatar suggests) and got some computer DST from it. But it wouldn't be polite from my part to guess this kind of things... so I won't.
