I can't play games anymore. I used to play them without a problem, but out of the blue I started getting an error. Whenever I try to start up a game, it would tell me that I need a Directx compatible device to play the game, even when I already had one. I tried reinstalling directx 9.0c, installing new video card drivers, and even omega drivers. When I do dxdiag it says I have directx 9.0c installed, but under directx features DirectDraw acceleration, Direct3D acceleration, and AGP Texture Acceleration are labeled Not Available. What might be the problem? I was able to run Age of Empires 2 but there were lines of white dots across the screen. Additionally, there are small lines surrounding the cursor when at the desktop screen and internet browsers run like slideshows when I scroll.
