    Hi all, first post here.

    I reinstalled windows, and updated all my drivers for my video card. I currently receive direct 3d errors when I run the tests in dxdiag. Any advice?

    I'm running Windows XP professional. My video card is an ATI radeon 1600.

    DirectX version is 9.0c.

    Also, the specific errors in dxdiag were:

    Direct3D 7 test results: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x80004005 (Generic failure)
    Direct3D 8 test results: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x8876086c (error code)
    Direct3D 9 test results: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x8876086c (error code)

    Okay, I've looked in some other places and it seems this error is related to 9.0.c Can anyone tell me how I can replace it with an earlier version of DirectX?
