==Direct3D is no longer initializing after updating to DirectX 9.0c from
9.0b==

After updating DirectX to 9.0c I can no longer access and initialize
Direct3D.
DirectX Direct3D is not initializing. DxDiag is reporting "Enabled" on
everything.
Even the nVIDIA GeForce3 card is reporting 2048MB of VRAM when the card
actually has 64MB.
What is going on here? Updating the video driver from v52.16 to v61.76
does not solve the problem either.
Is anyone else having this problem? Using the Windows Reporting Tool
captures the system information
but fails to actually send to Microsoft. Even DxDiag.exe will Not even
work at all.

It returns this error output:

"DxDiag has detected that there may have been a problem accessing
Direct3D the last this program was used. Would you like to bypass
Direct3D this time? Yes or No"

The CRASH output returns:

DXDIAG caused an invalid page fault in
module <unknown> at 0000:0000000b.

I suspect the "Out of memory" error is a result of the incorrect VRAM
assessment from the DxDiag tool.

Please offer what you can, thanks. I need to play my games.

U might need the latest chipset drivers for your motherboard. I had a
similar problem with a VIA based motherboard and downloading the latest
driver solved it.
hope that helps..
