    DirectX problems.. Direct3D failing

    I can't get any Direct3d games to work. When I go to dxdiag it shows:

    DDraw Status: Enabled
    D3D Status: Enabled
    AGP Status: Not Available (<-- problem!?)

    When I run the D3D tests I get:
    D3D7 Test Result: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x887602eb (error code)
    D3D8 Test Result: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x8876086a (3D not available)
    D3D9 Test Result: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x8876086a (3D not available)

    How can I fix this problem?

    AMD 2000+
    512mb ram
    Geforce 6600GT 128mb
    Windows XP SP2
    DirectX 9.0c

    I have tried updating to latest VIA chipset drivers and latest nvidia drivers (as suggested in some other forums) but this hasn't fixed the problem.

    I haven't been able to get this to work since reformatting my PC a couple of months ago. It worked for me before the reformat so it wouldn't be a videocard/hardware problem (plus I tried 2 other different video cards in my PC and I still get the same problem). Only difference I can see is that I installed Windows XP SP2 after the format, whereas I only had SP1 before it.

    PLEASE HELP!? I'm desperate!

    Hi!

    Welcome to Techzonez.

    What model is your motherboard?

    It sounds like your motherboard agp drivers have not been installed.

    Very strange that if your motherboard is via and the drib=vers did not update the xp drivers

    The motherboard is a Soltek SL-75DRV5.

    As I mentioned in my post, I updated the AGP with the latest VIA 4-in-1 with no luck.

    You must install everything in the right order.

    1. AGP driver
    2. Direct X build
    3. Video card driver
    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?
