Direct 3D problem (Radeon 9800 XT)

  1. I apologise if I've placed this in the wrong section, this forum is slightly daunting to a noob.

    This has been driving me barmy, so I really hope one of you kind people can relieve my stress.

    I can't play games anymore. It appears to be a problem with Direct 3D.

    In dxdiag I've ran the Direct 3D test and it comes up with the following errors.

    Direct3D 7 test results"test failed at step 8 (creating 3D device): HRESULT = 0x80004005 (generic failure

    Direct3D 8 test results"test failed at step 8 (creating 3D device): HRESULT = 0x800876086c (generic failure

    Direct3D 9 test results"test failed at step 8 (creating 3D device): HRESULT = 0x800876086c (generic failure

    I currently have Direct X 9.c (unistalled and re-intalled, still doesn't work).

    And, I've made sure I have the latest ATI drivers for my card.

    Does anyone know what else I can do or check?

    Thanks in advance.

    Beg your pardon, I didn't uninstall Direct X 9, I just tried to re-install it. Thanks
