  1. I am trying to install a video card, GeForce FX 5200. I have have downloaded the latest drivers but when I try to play ZOO Tycoon 2 I recieve errors about direct Draw. When I try to test direct draw and direct 3d in the Directx diagnostic tool it doesn't work. Can anyone help me, PLEASE!!!

    Try uninstalling the drivers and see if that works.

    Still no change. I've tried uninstalling the game several times but nothing seems to work.

    Still doesn't work. I have an onboard card that works fine but this thing has never worked for me. I don't know if it makes any difference but it is a Pci card.

    Not too sure about what I did but I got the card working. Thanks to everyone for their help.
