    I recently formated my hard drive and reinstalled xp pro. I have downloaded all but a few updates from micro$oft. I downloaded and installed new drivers from nvidia (Vanta/Vanta LT). I tried to run a movie, media player stuck. I went to dxdiag and tested direct draw and direct 3d, neither worked. All of this worked before I wiped my hard drive. One thing I noticed, the drivers from nvidia were dated 8/13. I don't remember exactly when I formated hard drive, but it was about that time. Also, I'm not sure if my virus scan and firewall (both norton 2002) were running when I installed new directx. I suspect that if I could uninstall directx and reinstall, the problem would be fixed, just a gut feeling. Is there any way to uninstall directx short of reformating and starting over? Any other ideas about what might be wrong?

    P.S. I also have reinstalled nvidia drivers and also the file check for dxdiag says everything is fine.
