It would appear that this geforce2 mx 400 card will not facillitate d3d. All the blurb suggests it does but I can't get it to work. directx diag. quits when trying to test it's d3d capabilities and then disables & 'greys-out' direct test buttons. Installing / re-installing card several times & ensuring all latest dirvers available has not done the trick can anyone help please.
Sorry people should have mentioned it's a pci card!! Motherboard has latest drivers - card has latest drivers - having read other prob. pages it might be drivers are too 'new'. Have tried installing/re-installing in every order but still no good!!
Tried that trick no good - game with dx8 that was working is not detecting any d3d on machine with new card. Have tried NVIDIA site for help but not much there!! d3d test fails on first test i.e. dx7 - can't find dx7 download anywhere either - any ideas?
I have a GForce4 mx420 pci card which I use as a backup in case my main agp card fails.It is essentially the same DirectX 7 based card as yours but it works just fine with the latest DirectX 9 and drivers.DirectX 9 should be fully backwards compatible with all previous versions.Have you tried the card in another pc to rule out any DirectX problems on your own computer?.If that doesn't work it looks like there is a hardware problem with the card itself.
However........try click here for downloading DirectX 7
and click here for an extensive archive of Nvidia drivers that goes back a few years.
