I have recently upgraded the driver for the above to enable my computer to play DVDs Now I find that I have lost 3D acceleration when I test DirectX I have DirectX 9 loaded and all WinMe Updates I have read the Release notes for the driver on the NVIDIA Website and enabled AGP4X in the Bios and added a line into the Registry to no avail The test results are D3D Test Result: Failure at step 18 (CreateDevice): HRESULT = 0x80004005 (Generic failure) I would like to know if this is a Graphic card failure or have I missed some other step in setup or update? Thanks for any help folks!! PS I have Via chips on the motherboard
Hello DieSse I have just downloaded the Via Drivers but they did not solve the problem What's annoying about this is that I have had the 3D working before using a less recent driver but can't find the Archive page on the NVIDIA Website It's my view that the latest driver is the culprit
I downloaded and installed it ealier this year and noticed a marked improvment in performance,i was going to install 45.23 but i'm sure i read a less than favorible posting about it on this forum so i gave it a miss.
Hello rev.bem I agree When I went to your hyperlink I noticed that the drivers are only WHQL Certified for the FX Range which may be the problem when trying to get DX Diag to work At the moment i can get the screen but as the progress slider moves I lose more and more mouse control suggesting a conflict and I can't get the page to even open I have since found the Archive page and I am systamatically downloading all the drivers and then I will install them one at a time until I can watch DVDs and hopefully get back my 3D Acceleration
