I recently installed an ATI Radeon 9700 pro 128mb AGP and can no longer play any of my games keep getting errors due to direct 3d not being enabled....unfortunatly i cannot get direct 3d to work even though i have reinstalled both graphics drivers and the directX 9.0c.
any help out there?
pentium 4 2.8ghz
128mb AGP radeon 9700 pro
windows xp pro sp3
Well...from the "start" button>Run>dxdiag>Enter
Dxdiag will take a few seconds to gather info, then you can move through the pages to run each of the tests and check the results. If there are problems, there is a troubleshoot button on the last page, see if that helps.
no warnings no problems. thanks for trying to help treefrog07!
if anybody else comes across this topic please have a crack at trying to help me its getting depressing having to use an old 64mb geforce 4 mx 440 SE
but surely it would just not work on directX 9.0c games but will on DX9, DX8, DX7 etc.
i am not even able to use any old games such as medal of honor allied assault.
so do you suggest i get rid of dx9.0c and just install dx9.0?
