Hi guys built a system

xp 2400+
512 ram
128mb geforce fx5200

only just noticed whilst installing a 3d game that it says something about install the latest drivers for your gfx card! which idid, it also mentions direct x, which i installed the latest version!
when i go into dx diags the options to test direct 3d and direct draw are all disabled

any ideas

have you tried enabling directdraw and direct3d from within dxdiag and is acceleration enabled in control panel/display/settings/advanced/troubleshooting

out of curiosity try windows update and see if it says there is an updated driver for it, my geforce had similar probs and i did what u did, needless to say it didn't work, however the windows udate one did. also trcompletely uninstalling and then reinstalling, took me three attempts to get mine up and running

add/remove programmes remove all traces of anything fx5200, then go to device manager uninstall actual card, rebot and when u start back, don't let windows start the add new hardware wizard, cancel it, instead insert your cd and use setup file from there.
