OK...so here is the deal i was just about to play some Max Payne and click on the icon and it says DirectX compatible vidcard needed.....so im like wtf and now none of my games work, i tried reinstalling drivers. I have a Gainward GF4 Ti4200. Also in Direct X properties it says running Directx version 0 btw in on WinXP dxdiag shows the error Direct3D test results: Failure at step 5 (GetDeviceCaps): HRESULT = 0x8876086a (3D not available)....what up here????

Saltin,
I cant reinstall all the DX downloads on the Microsoft site are only for versions other than DX for WinXP because the latest DX is supposed to be included with WinXP

bacillus,
How do i boot from the cd and use the repair option??
