  1. Hey whats everybody. I Just installed a new RX9550 and cant play Hlao. I recieve a "HALO- FATEL ERROR" message saying "A problem occured initilizing Direct 3D. Hardware Acceleration maybe disabled. Please run DXDIAG." I did and it says all my 3D stuff is good. Also on the same error screen it has Machine info and for my video card its says "512M ATI (0x4153)"-normal or what. I used to play with my old GForce4, but it went bad. Any sugg. I have an MSI K7N2Delta motherboard w/ nvidean chipset. could that be conflicting with the v/c ati chipset??

    thanx for any help
