    Recently when i installed a f1 game it said: CUBE 3D setup cannot be run on this computer . no directx video adapter found. please contact your video card vendor for updated drivers.

    2.to test directdraw functionality click the "test directdraw" button above . (it worked properly , though i m not sure if it is really working or not )
    3.direct3d functionality not available , u should verify that the driver is a final version from the hardware manufacture .
