Direct X

Had to reinstal windows last night. XP pro and SP2. Updated all my drivers etc and all seems fine. However on testing 3D acceleration and 3D draw the computer freezes. Have run SFC so now am at a loss. Wondering if direct x is corrupt and if so can you reinstall it?

reinstall DirectX 9
first the AGP drivers, chipset drivers, all the windows XP updates ideally first.
When you say you had to re-install XP Pro I take it you have a dedicated Microsoft CD and not a Factory restore format ?.
Did you install the XP Pro in FAT 32 or NTFS ? If you HDD is bigger than 34GB (before windows) then NTFS file system should be used.

Slither~Man yes I have a full version and all updates were installed. I disabled 3D acceleration and direct draw tested ok but when I enable acceleration it freezes and yes ntfs format
