  1. I have a big problem.
    My driver was faulty, so I rolled it back (Graphics). Then, I uninstalled it in safe mode and reinstalled it. After that everytime I open a new game program it says my drivers are faulty.

    I ran didiag and about 3d acceleration it says this:

    DirectDraw Acceleration: Not Available - [Disable] - [Test DirectDraw]

    Direct3d Acceleration: Not Available - [Disable (Faded) - [Test Direct3d (faded)

    AGP Texture Acceleration: Not Available - [Disable (faded)

    No Problems found
    to test direct draw functionality, chick the "test directdraw" button above
    Direct3d functionality not available. you shuold verify that the driver is a final version from the hardware manufacturer

    I already tried upgrading the drivers from both and (i have a emachines T2896) both the drivers INF and graphics. It still does not work. Can anybody help me?

    you may not be able to run 3D games because you are using onboard graphics...

    i dont think its solvable with drivers, you will need graphics card to run 3D games.
