DirectX 9 - probs

  edz 17:16 21 May 03

Here's the prob, recently did a clean reinstall of win98 and then upgraded DirectX to version 9, everything has been fine until now.

No games run and the Direct3D 8 inerfaces fail on the diagnostic tests with the following:-

Test Failed at step5(GetDeviceCaps):HRESULT 0x88760869(3d not available)

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

go to start/run and type dxdiag

click on the display tab and disable all direct x features(direct draw/3d/texture acceleration features)and reboot

now go back and enable and that should fix it.
