directx help Answered

Ok I am having problems with my directx driver and I need help. For some reason unknown to me almost all of my games can't start because the following directx features are not working:Directdraw acceleration,direct3d acceleration,and AGP texture acceleration. I did test directdraw and that work as it should. So what do you think the problem is?

I've had problems with my computer being too old to run games I tried running Spore on a 2.8ghz laptop, but the graphics "card" wasn't good enough, having 16mb of dedicated video RAM

Your graphics card might have failed

Could be: Drivers need updating to work with newer games Drivers corrupted Funky virus (maybe...) I'd just reinstall the drivers and see if that doesn't fix it.
