    Downloaded and installed DirectX 9 on an older computer with the Turtle Beach Montego II sound card. Card used the Vortex 2 chip made by defunct Aureal 3D. When I run the DXdiagnostic I get an error message that there is a problem accessing direct sound. If I force it, dxdiag crashes and the program closes back the system tools box. If I skip it and then test direct sound, everything is working and there are no messagesthat there is a problem. No problems so far with the sound in any any games (Starcraft, Warcraft, Red Alert 2 etc) that are on that computer. Anyone else have this or know if the sound card is incompatible with the new DirectX? There are no new drivers available from Dell for this card so an update is not an option.
