    Direct X (Windows Xp Home sp2)

    I am having a Direct X problem. Well full screen game problem altogether. I cannot play any games that could before on my Pc. It either gives me an error message and needs to close, says "Direct Draw accelerator may be off. Run DXDAIG" I did and went though all the test and passed. It was on and working. Sometimes it would say <game name> requires and 1.1 pixel card yours is 1.0 do you wish to continue? I said Yes then it game with an error message. I don't know what to do. I am getting to the point of reinstalling Windows with a clean install.
    Any help would be great.

    Hi there

    Welcome to the Lounge.

    Re-installing Windows is a bit extreme but you may consider these options:

    1) Have you updated Windows with any patches lately?
    2) Try updating the drivers for your video card
    3) Have you been to any gaming forums that may be discussing this issue
