Since downloading Direct X version 9 from microsoft I cannot change my screen res from 640X480, my system is a Mesh approx 4 years old running windows 98, graphics package is Hercules Dynamite TNT version 4 and there are no errors in device manager.
Thanks to Jim for earlier response but my e-mails to you were returned 'failed delivery'

Your graphics card will not support Direct X 9. Change back to 8.1. Only the very newest cards support this technology at present. This could be the problem.

The screen res problem was sorted thanks to Mark who sent me a file to uninstall the core components of DirectX and reinstall version 8.1
Many thanks.
