How to enable Directdraw Acceleration

I formatted and installed windows
XP service park 2 on Lenovo IBM thinkpad Laptop and discovered I lost the sound. Each time I tried to play music on my laptop using Nero DirectX 9.0c I get a pop up saying: This application requires DirectDraw Acceleration, which is not available in your system. Please enable it in DirectX 'Diagnostic tool' (Dx diag.exe) in the the tab display. How do I enable it since under the tab display it is greyed out.

  1. Try installing the full DirectX 9.0c from MS. Then run dxdiag to see if you can enable DirectDraw.
